First time poster to these forums.
I have the SEM Appliance running on an Industrial Control Network and I would like to add McAfee Antivirus to it. I've used Linux for years and I understand the implications of not having AntiVirus on it as well as the false-sense-of-security Linux can provide simply because it isn't an easy target. That being said, I've run Linux for >10 years without an issue. However, I don't want to mess up the installation or operation of SEM... Is it OK to load it, or should I leave it without AV protection?
Thank y'all in advance for any advice you may be able offer me. You are all greatly appreciated!

Hi Don - SEM is actually a secure appliance and is therefore not possible to deploy any additional software, including anti-virus onto the appliance. You can view the steps we take to ensure confidentiality and integrity here: Log & Event Manager Appliance Security and Data Protection
