Course Synopsis

Please note that this course is no longer available. Please see our Training Homepage for currently available courses.

The number of threats and vulnerabilities are constantly increasing so being able to quickly determine which threats are critical and need immediate remediation is key to staying ahead of the curve. Using Vulnerability management in McAfee's own infrastructure helped us move from nineteen patch deployments a year to four, through understanding which vulnerabilities already had remediation from our installed products and only having to patch for those that didn't.

The Vulnerability Management Essentials course covers installation, configuration, troubleshooting and how to efficiently utilize all of the features and components of McAfee's Vulnerability Management solution. This course will reinforce vulnerability management best practices.
