McAfee – DXL 5.0 Release

McAfee Data Exchange Layer 5.0.0 has been released on the 13th of November. The current release of the product includes support for DXL brokers on Microsoft Window Servers, advances in automation and the release extends support to the McAfee ePO 5.10 security management platform.

DXL 5.0.0 is a server related release

The DXL 5.0.0 release includes only the server-related components such as the DXL brokers and the DXL extensions for McAfee ePO. This release does not include a DXL client. You can continue using your existing DXL client with the DXL 5.0.0 release.

Support for DXL brokers on Microsoft Window Servers

DXL brokers can now be installed on Microsoft Windows Servers, reducing the number of systems that need to be deployed and managed. This enables coexistence on the McAfee ePO Server or McAfee ePO components such as SuperAgents or Agent Handlers.

Advances in automation

Remote commands that are exposed in McAfee ePO or Strategic Alliance Partner products can be called directly over DXL. Invoking remote commands over DXL is useful with automation tasks, whether they are user-driven (orchestrated), or performed without user involvement (automated). For example, DXL can generate a McAfee ePO Threat Event, or a DXL event on any topic via an Automatic Response Action.

McAfee ePO 5.10 support

  • This release extends support to the McAfee ePO 5.10 security management platform.
  • In McAfee ePO 5.10, Software Manager is renamed as the Software Catalog. The documentation now uses the new term.
