Description
McAfee Network Security Manager (NSM) is a simple, centralized management software for distributed McAfee Network Security Platform intrusion prevention system (IPS) sensors. The NSM console with its intuitive graphical interface gives administrators complete control and real-time data, so that they can manage, configure, administer, and monitor all IPS appliances across widely distributed, mission-critical deployments. The NSM Application Crypto Module provides cryptographic services for the Network Security Manager application.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 running on a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P
