  • Choose between virtual or hardware appliances.
  • Simplify multivendor security environments, eliminate ineffective piecemeal defenses, and reduce operating costs, while significantly strengthening email security.
  • Integrate McAfee Email Gateway with other McAfee products to reduce security incidents.

Stop targeted phishing attacks and data loss

Targeted attack and phishing protection

ClickProtect technology leverages real-time behavioral analysis for time-of-click URL protection in email, while advanced static code and sandboxing via McAfee Advanced Threat Defense for McAfee Email Gateway eliminates malicious attachments.

Limit unwanted email with graymail filtering

Set graymail policies for individuals or groups, and permit users to enable filtering that eliminates email once opted into but now considered spam.

Encrypt emails without the complexity

Eliminate the need to source, manage, or integrate a separate encryption product. Built-in, policy-based email encryption includes B2B (TLS, S/MIME, OpenPGP) and B2C (push, pull, push and pull) technologies.

Reduce risk of data exfiltration

Robust on-box compliance templates leveraging McAfee data loss prevention technology supports PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and other compliance mandates. Scan over 500 document types and use fingerprinting, lexical analysis, and clustering techniques.

Simple, powerful administration for superior protection

Lower costs and simplify administration with customizable, enterprise-class reporting, exportable report logs, real-time dashboards, alerts, and flexible policy creation and enforcement—administered via McAfee Email Gateway or McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.
