McAfee Setup in Closed Network

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
Hi all,

I've been asked to setup an AV solution for a particular part of our company. The problem is that the department works on rather sensitive data and as a result they have no internet access whatsoever nor any external network access. They do have a local dc / file & print server that they talk to so Im wondering if there is a way of setting up a share perhaps that could contain the DAT / SUPERDAT and other relevant files (obviously these would have to added manually) that the clients could connect to to get their updates.

I have McAfee Epo in the rest of the network and I guess I could set the server up as an independant Epo server but I want to try and reduce the amount of administration for the local IT guy so a share with the DAT files would be easier I think?

Any ideas....?
