McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite

McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite

Secure Windows, Mac, and Linux systems with essential endpoint and data protection

Next Steps:

Overview

Traditional Windows, Mac, and Linux systems within your LAN need essential security to block advanced malware, control data loss and compliance risks caused by removable media, and provide safe access to critical email and web applications. McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite integrates these core functions into a single, manageable, multiplatform environment ideal for safeguarding traditional desktops that have limited exposure to Internet threats.

Endpoint Protection Suite includes:

Real-time anti-malware and antivirus protection — Block viruses, Trojans, worms, adware, spyware, and other potentially unwanted programs that steal confidential data and sabotage user productivity.

Proactive email and web security — Intercept malware and spam before it reaches inboxes. Built-in McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise Plus warns users about malicious websites before they click and allows administrators to authorize or block website access, ensuring compliance.

Desktop firewall — Control desktop applications that can access the network, and stop network-borne attacks and downtime. Deploy and manage firewall policies based on location to deliver complete protection and compliance with regulations.

Comprehensive device control — Monitor and restrict data copied to removable storage devices and media to keep it from leaving company control.

Unrivaled centralized management — The McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform provides visibility and control over security defenses and unifies controls over all your security and compliance tools, from McAfee as well as third parties.

Features & Benefits

Protect your endpoints from every angle

Guard all Windows, Mac, and Linux endpoints against system, data, email, web, and network threats.

Save time and money

McAfee enables you to manage endpoint security from one centralized console and connect to other McAfee and third-party products, improving visibility and expediting response times.

Deploy quickly and easily

Enable increased protection without delay. The EASI installer gets your strong protection running in as few as four clicks. Endpoint Protection Suite is integrated with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform so you can deploy and manage security using a single environment.
