FireEyeHX offers clients for Windows, MacOS and Linux and can be installed on workstations, servers and VDI environments. FireEyeHX can be installed on many older operating systems. If you would like to find out if a specific OS is supported, contact IT Security.

You do not need to uninstall your old antivirus program, but you can choose to as FireEyeHX works as a complete replacement for traditional anti-malware solutions.

The FireEyeHX client uses a small amount of system resources and should not impact your daily activities.
