SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- McAfee, Inc. (NYSE: MFE) today announced that McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise and McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise received a gold medal in Information Security's 2007 Readers' Choice Awards. McAfee Policy Enforcer received a bronze medal.
"We are honored to receive this recognition from Information Security's readership," said Vimal Solanki, senior director of product marketing. "These solutions are all part of our Security Risk Management Strategy. Our SRM strategy, when implemented, lets customers administer both threat protection and compliance management. This permits them to mitigate and manage their IT risk."
"McAfee Policy Enforcer is part of the enforcement component of SRM. Our Total Protection solutions, which include McAfee's antivirus and antispyware technologies, are part of the protection component," stated Solanki. These solutions and the other components of SRM are completely integrated and managed through our industry leading ePolicy Orchestrator® management console."
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise and AntiSpyware Enterprise received a gold medal winner in the Antimalware category. According to Information Security, "In addition to the management capabilities, readers praised McAfee VirusScan Enterprise's and AntiSpyware Enterprise's reliability and ease of use. McAfee's focus on integration and management put it over the top."
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise proactively stops and removes malicious software. It extends coverage against new security risks. It covers a broad range of threats by blending advanced anti-virus, firewall, and intrusion prevention technologies. McAfee VirusScan Enterprise finds even new, unknown threats utilizing advanced heuristics and behavioral analysis detection. This dramatically reduces the cost of responding to outbreaks.
McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise protects businesses from all types of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). It uses a unique on-access scanning technology. Unlike other anti-spyware software that deals with spyware after the fact, AntiSpyware Enterprise catches spyware it before it installs. The AntiSpyware Enterprise PUP database is maintained by McAfee® Avert Labs, the world's top threat research center.
McAfee Policy Enforcer received a bronze medal in the Endpoint Security category. From Information Security -- "Antivirus and intrusion prevention powerhouse McAfee garnered the bronze medal for its Policy Enforcer product. Policy Enforcer boasts all the features of other network access control (NAC) systems, but is a software-based system and not an appliance. This easy-to-deploy solution is installed at various points across a network and integrates with McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator management console for policy enforcement and effective control."
McAfee Policy Enforcer network access control mitigates the risk to corporate assets posed by systems that either do not comply with a company's security policies or may be infected. It combines powerful security policy control with a wide range of enforcement methods to protect the network.
