About Agent Management
Agent Management for University-owned computers connects to UMass Amherst IT's central consoles and receives software updates, policies, and configurations automatically. The central consoles also enables UMass Amherst IT to locate and respond to security threats and incidents more effectively and efficiently.

Note: Running more than one anti-virus software on your computer can cause serious conflicts. Before installing McAfee Endpoint Security make sure you do not have other anti-virus applications on your machine.
