Backup: Acronis Backup 12 doppelt so schnell wie Veeam 9.X

This could be an alternative if you don't like the VEEAM suite and you have large amount of physical Servers where you already have Acronis in place.

Neither pricing nor any other smaller things will be a turnaround in that market where Veeam gained almost 70% during the last few years.

MCAFEE: TIE Threat Exchange 2.0 first look

We were heavy waiting for the TIE 2.X update because we think you should not use 1.3 in Enterprise with a lot of new files daily. You simply could not manage it good with the Reports, Dashboard they had in 1.3.

We have heard the same from Mcafee internals. And for a product at that price range nobody seemed to understand how this was pushed out. We just talk about the Query and Filters and the Interface not

the product itself that has worked. Well let's be fair with the Ransomware Peak and enterprise struggling for solution AND also INTEL/MCAFE/INVESTOR Sales the reason is clear somehow also. Company's wanted a solution quick and NOW!

Version on TIE Server after upgrade

EPP products and the new TIE release

 

Short report from our first integration of TIE 2.0

Update went good and is described in the PDF

  • Check that you have Framework 5.0.3 on the clients
  • Check that you have DXL 2.0
  • Make a VMWARE Snapshot of all before you begin (Make a EPO-Snapshot also), Make a SQL DUMP!
  • Don't forget to DEFRAG the PostgreSQL DB as mentioned in the documentation (Logon with ROOT SSH and then run the command in fully in one string) *2
  • There are Colors and GREEN/RED Button as we wanted now ;-) [Intel Security Ideas Forum: TIE: Want to see in EPO at once if a Executable will RUN flag in GREEN or RED ] Thank you guys!
  • You can SORT and see in the TIE Page on first page the LOCAL Reputation and if it will run or not
  • You can better sort and have more fields to select

   

*2 Defrag of POSTGRESQL

 

 

One bug found and NO i am not going to OPEN a ticket and upload MER for you lazy Tier 1. Call us if you want the info ;-) And yes send FREE TOTALPROTECTION for us for the BUGS we report you….

 BUG: In the DASHBOARD if you select "Composite Reputation" as add. Field you get this error. Maybe CACHE related but then please advise in UPGRADE Documentation.

   

 ERROR: Error Message: com.mcafee.orion.core.template.db.exception.ExecuteTransactionException: ERROR: missing FROM-clause entry for table "file_rep_enterprise" Position: 198Error Message: com.mcafee.orion.core.template.db.exception.ExecuteTransactionException: ERROR: missing FROM-clause entry for table "file_rep_enterprise" Position: 198

Not sure if this is any way related to an old problem we had based on older SQL version:

Mcafee: Endpoint Migration Assistant Shows NULL shortly after upgrade to EPO 5.3.X

Mcafee: Endpoint Migration Assistant Shows NULL shortly after upgrade to EPO 5.3.X

There is a knowledgebase which describes a cache Bug after you Update EPO 5.1 to 5.3.x. The same BUG is valid if you check in Endpoint 10.2 and want to migrate

the Policy's. Clear all in Internet Explorer 11 Cache and it will display correct after that.

Ende WSUS-Patchday ab Oktober 2016 > Ende stabile Enterprise Umgebungen…

 

Das wird eine Katastrophe sind sich alle einig und "Nein" es gab noch nie Problem mit WSUS-Updates bei Microsoft ;-)

Zum Glück betrifft dies nur die OS-Patche und keine Framework und Office Patche.

 

  • Es wird ein kumulative Patch Sammlung pro Monat oder Woche geben
  • SEPARAT: Framework werden separat in einem kumulativen Patch pro Monat Releases
  • SEPARAT: Office Patche wie bis anhin einzeln
  • Falls bekannt ist das ein fehlerhafter dabei ist > kann man das Ganze CUMU nicht installieren und muss eventuell die einzelnen HOTFIXE alle bei MS MPSS Requesten.
  • Schon installiert > Falls ein fehlerhafter dabei ist muss das ganze CUMU Deinstalliert werden und das System bleibt unsicher
