Safeguard your business desktops

Keep your business running smoothly

Prevent intrusions, protect assets, and enforce intrusion prevention system (IPS) and zero-day threat protection coverage at all levels: network, endpoint, and application.

Get the broadest intrusion prevention coverage

Identify and block known attacks. A stateful firewall applies policies, bars unsolicited inbound traffic, and controls outbound traffic.

Save time and cut costs

Protect and manage all desktops across your entire enterprise with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, the scalable, centralized platform for easy deployment, management, reporting, and auditing.

Create custom, location-based policies

Apply different levels of security using rules based on the endpoint’s connection—on the corporate network, over VPN, or from a public network—with connection-aware protection.

Spot and block new vulnerabilities

Automatic security updates target specific vulnerabilities to recognize unknown exploits and stop them from executing. Updates do not require system reboots, and updating signatures is similar to updating .DAT files.

Prove compliance without headaches

Use easy-to-understand actionable views, workflow, event monitoring, and reporting to quickly remediate threats and maintain compliance.

Intel Security will continue to support current versions of enterprise endpoint products on Windows XP SP3 beyond April 8, 2014, for a limited time, as long as it is technically and commercially reasonable for Intel Security to do so, and there is no external dependency. For example, if a McAfee product requires a Microsoft fix that is not provided, then Intel Security can no longer support the product. Future releases of enterprise products that are released after April 8, 2014 may not support Windows XP SP3.
