I need help to know what are the prerequisites for releasing the atp sensor in mcafee antivirus?
I'm not able to find documentation to be able to release the atp sensor in any antivirus.

 

Thanks

Depending on the default AV configuration, is most cases the sensor will work fine without any AV exceptions. while this is the case, we did ran into few cases where the AV was too aggressice,

and we had  add exceptions for:

1. not scanning both sensor processes

2. not scanning the sensor deployment folder

 

This has resolved most of the AV issues we saw.
