Intel Security will discontinue McAfee SaaS products

Fahmida Y. Rashid | Oct. 27, 2015
Some products will be replaced, but admins will need to start over for setup and configuration.

Instruction on how to switch to the new products are "forthcoming."

One of the advantages of SaaS is the fact that companies can update components and fix issues in the background without disrupting the user experience. However, all those advantages disappear when the entire application gets shut down, as is happening here.

Customers have to perform multiple steps to switch to what is essentially the same application, with more capabilities. To move to the new endpoint security platform, customers will need to activate a new account in McAfee ePO Cloud and reinstall McAfee Endpoint Security. Administrators have to set up new accounts, reinstall software, and redefine policies all over again.
