McAfee Simplifies Mobile Device Management And Data Security

McAfee Enhances Enterprise Mobile Security with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Management Platform

SANTA CLARA, Calif., 29 May 2013 - McAfee today announced that McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee® EMM™ software) is now fully integrated with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) platform. With McAfee EMM software, comprehensive security, policy, and management capabilities are extended to mobile devices. McAfee ePO software enables enterprises to protect their data on company-issued and employee-owned devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers) through a single, unified infrastructure and console.

According to a Gartner survey of 2,300 CIOs worldwide last year, CIOs ranked mobile security as their second highest technology priority.1 IT departments have largely deployed standalone management systems for mobile devices. Mobility no longer needs to be an additional strain on IT resources with the simplification and efficiency of managing end-user devices and servers in the same security infrastructure.

“Businesses are leveraging mobile technologies to deliver a competitive edge yet many organizations manage these devices separately from their core infrastructure,” said Ari Jaaksi, senior vice president and general manager of Mobile Engineering Operations at McAfee. “Every device that’s connected to the Internet or that has access to an organization’s network or database needs to be secured and managed. McAfee is making it easier for IT departments to see and manage their mobile footprint along with the rest of their infrastructure.”
