Organizations should use centrally managed anti-virus software that is controlled and monitored regularly by anti-virus administrators, who are also typically responsible for acquiring, testing, approving, and delivering anti-virus signature and software updates throughout the organization. Users should not be able to disable or delete anti-virus software from their hosts, nor should they be able to alter critical settings. Anti-virus administrators should perform continuous monitoring to confirm that hosts are using current anti-virus software and that the software is configured properly. Implementing all of these recommendations should strongly support an organization in having a strong and consistent anti-virus deployment across the organization.

Access the server designated as the McAfee MOVE SVM. In the taskbar, right-click the red McAfee Agent shield and select "McAfee Agent Status Monitor".

Click the "Collect and Send Props" button. This will perform the ASCI, send the PROPS VERSION package to the ePO, and close the session.

Click the "Enforce Policies" button. In the McAfee Agent Monitor, review the Management status lines and ensure one shows a status of "Enforcing Policies for DC_AM_4000" and "Enforcing Policies for DC_GS_4000". This status lines will confirm the system is enforcing policies for the McAfee MOVE AV SVM.

If the system does not show "Agent started performing ASCI", followed by a sequence of status lines showing the "Agent is sending PROPS VERSION package to ePO server" and "Agent communication session closed", or does not show a Management status line of "Enforcing Policies for DC_AM_4000" and "Enforcing Policies for DC_GS_4000", this is a finding.
