Advanced protection to secure Macintosh endpoints

Next Steps:


Macintosh endpoints are not immune to security threats. That’s why it’s imperative that businesses deploy security to Mac endpoints just as they do to Windows endpoints. Cybercriminals are after data, and they don’t care what type of endpoint holds it.

McAfee Endpoint Protection for Mac is an essential security solution for protecting the data on your Mac endpoints. Advanced protection technologies, including anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, and application protection, along with centralized management with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform, allow businesses to secure Mac endpoints and ensure compliance with security policies.

Broad protection — Secure all endpoints on your Macintosh systems against all types of viruses, spyware, phishing attacks, and exploits.

Centralized, integrated management — Use the same web-based console to manage both your Mac and Windows endpoints. Easily deploy protection for all of your Macs from a single interface.

Intuitive, Macintosh-like interface — Get up and running quickly, with minimal training. Endpoint Protection for Mac uses Apple’s Mac OS X Aqua user interface, so you can deploy and manage from an instantly familiar Macintosh screen.
