Employees are bringing their own laptops, tablets, and smartphones to the office and using them to conduct business. And it’s good news for your company. This flood of iPhones, iPads, Android devices, and employee-owned laptops enables productivity, lowers organizational procurement costs, and eases the demand on IT for traditional endpoint support. But with the benefits come new risks, including security management issues around network access, compliance, and data security.
The Security Connected approach from McAfee ensures that enterprises can meet the latest challenges — from handling lost devices to managing the growing number of mobile platforms — brought by these new devices in the workplace. This solution guide explores how businesses can effectively and securely enable the use of consumer-owned devices in the enterprise by protecting how data is being manipulated and controlling network access across mobile devices, laptops, desktops, and virtual desktops.
McAfee integrates data and processes to make vulnerability management more effective and efficient. Our approach combines asset discovery and management, comprehensive vulnerability scanning, flexible reporting, and remediation workflows into a single vulnerability assessment solution.
McAfee enables secure and compliant network access for employee-owned PCs and Macs, aligns network access for these devices with company security policies, provides a process for handling out-of-compliance systems, and ensures that these systems are monitored to protect the overall security posture of the enterprise.
Address the challenge of supporting unmanaged endpoints such as smartphones, tablets, and employee-owned laptops. McAfee helps enterprises implement a network access architecture that can effectively handle both managed and unmanaged clients, rogue devices, and various user privileges — enforcing endpoint policies across all devices to ensure compliance.
McAfee endpoint security solutions provide a layered defense to protect PCs, providing antimalware and antivirus defenses, encryption, access control, and safe web browsing features.
McAfee fights rootkits by using real-time memory and CPU protection, protecting against known and unknown attacks, and getting beneath the operating system.
To enable the secure and controlled use of social media in the workplace, McAfee recommends a layered approach, including firewall and data loss prevention (DLP) built around a solid web proxy solution. With McAfee security solutions, enterprises can address bandwidth concerns around the use of social media, encourage the productive use of time among employees, scan for malware, filter HTTPS content, and stop data leakage.
While waking systems to scan and providing remote repair capabilities seem like very different issues, they are both solved through McAfee integration with Intel® vPro® Active Management Technology (Intel AMT). Leveraging the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) agent and centralized management environment, McAfee ePO Deep Command runs on desktops and laptops with the second generation Intel Core™ i5 and i7 vPro technologies.
The McAfee solution layers cloud-based protection in front of on-premises equipment to enable detection of spam, phishing, and viruses; data loss prevention; and compliance while ensuring business continuity and helping to reduce the size of your email processing footprint.
To block outsiders attempting to steal your valuables, McAfee offers robust antispam and antimalware, with real-time threat assessments by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, minimizing the chance that your users will receive or click on phishing emails or malicious attachments that could open your infrastructure to a targeted attack.
The McAfee solution uses one management console, one vulnerability scanning appliance, and one agent on each endpoint system. The agent manages the endpoint security products. For further efficiencies, we offer optional integration with other McAfee solutions and McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partner solutions for endpoint protection.
Provide effective security for laptops. McAfee protects laptops with a solution that integrates antimalware, data loss prevention, data protection, safe web browsing features, and complete visibility and control that enables IT to deploy security updates on laptops, regardless of the Internet connection.
McAfee helps organizations understand and monitor how employees are using USB sticks and other portable storage devices. Our solutions to secure removable media include antivirus and antimalware protection, data loss prevention, data encryption, and controls that help implement effective policies to protect critical information.
Conquer performance issues related to implementing antivirus solutions in virtualized desktop infrastructures (VDI). McAfee offers a practical way to efficiently integrate antivirus in VDI by offloading virtual desktop antivirus operations to a centralized system and integrating VDI security with the broader enterprise security infrastructure.
McAfee helps enterprises build secure, scalable, and highly available mobile device management deployments. McAfee mobile solutions enable multiple points of access and corporate email use that can accommodate the additional network utilization from mobile devices.
