We are trying to prepare for the inevitable traps to cortex migration. In our present TMS console we have approx. 3500 win 10 systems, approx 700 linux,mac os systems. When the migration starts, will the migration mechanism just start systematically going through the devices in TMS? The reason I ask is, we only want the 700 linux, mac devices upgraded. The windows systems are going to be using Defender. Is there a way to have the migration only upgrade the 700 linux,macos machines?
Hi Rclifford! All of the agents on all of your systems, including Windows, will be upgraded to Cortex XDR management. I recommend that you allow all of your agents to be migrated to Cortex XDR at the same time. You can take advantage of many new features available with Cortex XDR. The TMS console will eventually be decommissioned. Otherwise, you can uninstall the agents on your Windows hosts.
Note that you do not need to upgrade your Traps endpoint agents to take advantage of the new, unified Cortex XDR management console. If you do optionally upgrade your endpoint agents, then you can benefit from new capabilities such as a fully-rebuilt, AI-based local analysis engine and USB Device Control.
