Looking for some comparison info between DCS and SEP for Linux malware protection

  • 1.  Looking for some comparison info between DCS and SEP for Linux malware protection

    Posted Aug 11, 2021 09:18 AM
    We are looking to rollout malware protection for our Linux hosts now that we have upgraded to DCS 6.9.  Does anyone have any comparison as to the benefits of moving to DCS for linux malware protection vs deploying SEP.

    This question is coming up because now we need to deploy LiveUpdate Administrator in order to reap the benefits of Linux malware protection.  If we are going to deploy LiveUpate Administrator anyways, should we just deploy SEP to linux endpoints in addition to the DCS agent or will the DCS agent provide us the same type of malware protection we would see with SEP?

    Thank you for your help!

    Hi Mike,

    No need to install SEP along with DCS agent. DCS agent is bundled with Antimalware. This feature was introduced on DCS version 6.8 itself. But still limited to few Linux release.

    Antimalware options available when installing the Linux agent (broadcom.com)
