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.
Report on and enforce security policies on Macs to ensure endpoints fully comply with your security standards.
Use a single web-based console to manage both Mac and Windows endpoints. Endpoint Protection for Mac integrates seamlessly with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform, saving you time and money.
Rely on advanced scanning functions for fast and accurate threat protection that doesn’t impact system performance.
Prevent malicious attacks designed to steal data from being downloaded or installed on your Mac endpoints.
Trust McAfee Labs, our 24/7 Global Threat Intelligence team, to ensure your protections remain strong and up to date, even as applications and environments change.
Secure your endpoints against every type of virus and malicious code threat, even those hidden in compressed files, with advanced heuristics and generic detection from Endpoint Protection for Mac.
Neutralize spyware before it takes root and spreads by stopping spyware and other potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) before they install and start stealing personal information.
Stop network-based attacks with inbound and outbound firewalls to prevent unwanted network activity. Ensure same network firewall policies can be enforced on both Mac and Windows endpoints.
Prevent malicious programs from modifying applications, and allow or deny applications that are not approved to run on your Mac.
These are minimum system requirements only. Recommended requirements are in parenthesis, where applicable. Actual requirements will vary depending on the nature of your environment.

Spear phishing email is a major worry to any organization. Messages that appear legitimate and specific fool us more often than random phishing attempts. Exploits that use patched vulnerabilities delivered via spear phishing email are one of the most successful combinations used by attackers to infiltrate targeted organizations and gain access to confidential information. During […]

The Dofoil downloader (found in the wild since 2011) occasionally updates itself with new features and encryption techniques to hide communications with its control servers. The latest iteration uses a variation of XOR and RC4 algorithms similar to previous variants to encrypt the list of control servers within the binary and encrypt all traffic with […]

McAfee product coverage and mitigations for malware or indicators associated with the recent attacks (a.k.a. Dragonfly, Energetic Bear, Havex/SYSMain) on industrial control systems (ICS’s) are listed below. The Havex remote access tool is common across these associated attacks or campaigns–including Dragonfly. We have seen Havex in ICS-specific targeted campaigns. It can detect and affect ICS- […]
