The McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® Administration guided on-demand course from
McAfee® Education Services offers you comprehensive and focused multimedia training
from experienced instructors in a self-paced environment at your desk. The course delivers
the same curriculum as the instructor-led training through virtual, on-demand coursework,
recorded instructor presentations, use-case scenarios from McAfee best practices and
experiences, and hands-on lab exercises. You’ll have email access to the instructor to get
your questions answered.
The course offers in-depth training on the benefits of the centralized management and
deployment of McAfee products using McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO™)
software. Enabling administrators to fully understand the capabilities of their security
solution not only reduces the risks of misconfiguration, but also ensures that an
organization gets the maximum protection from installation.
This course is intended for system and network administrators, security personnel, auditors, and/or consultants concerned with system endpoint security.
