According to McAfee, the upgrade enables IT administrators to manage McAfee desktop antivirus products and Symantec's desktop and server antivirus tools.
ePolicy Orchestrator 2.5 now offers management support for up to 250,000 desktop systems from a single console on a single server. The previous version supported up to 100,000 systems.
The software is designed to help IT managers maintain corporate antivirus policy. Software updates can be pushed to remote and network users.
Combined with the built-in alert system that sends virus outbreak warnings by e-mail, pager or other devices to IT staff, McAfee said the updated software could help companies fight the spread of viruses.
