McAfee Complete Data Protection — Advanced

Comprehensive data protection suites

Next Steps:


The McAfee Complete Data Protection — Advanced suite protects your data from risk of loss, theft, and exposure using a combination of powerful enterprise-grade endpoint encryption, access control, and user-behavior monitoring. The suite helps you establish and enforce a data protection policy and centralizes data security management using the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) management console. This advanced suite features data loss prevention, device control, and optionally, management of native encryption for Apple FileVault native to Macs and Microsoft BitLocker management for Windows PCs*. Additionally, McAfee ePO Deep Command provides remote security management to access Intel vPro-based PCs to implement patches, reset passwords, and to remediate broken endpoints.

The McAfee Complete Data Protection — Advanced suite helps:

  • Control how employees access, use, and transfer sensitive information via common channels, such as email, IM, printing, and USB drives. You stay in control of your data protection whether users are in the office, at home, or on the move.
  • Protect your data from loss or theft with a blazing fast endpoint encryption solution that is FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria EAL2+ certified, and accelerated by the Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel AES-NI).
  • Encrypt storage on desktops, virtual desktop infrastructure workstations, laptops, tablets, and removable media such as CD/DVD and USB flash devices. You control what specific file types and folders are encrypted.
  • Utilize management of native encryption for Macs with Apple FileVault and Windows PCs with Microsoft BitLocker.
  • Extend the reach of IT with Intel vPro and Intel Active Management Technology-based platforms for secure remote access, regardless of PC power or encrypted state.
  • Deploy and provision with confidence with the Endpoint Encryption Go utility to ensure your endpoints have passed pre-encryption inspections and ongoing health monitoring.
  • Use advanced reporting and auditing capabilities to quickly and easily demonstrate security compliance to internal and external auditors, and other key stakeholders.

McAfee Complete Data Protection — Advanced is the full data protection suite that includes DLP Endpoint, Device Control, drive encryption, file and removable media protection, management of native encryption and ePO Deep Command.

Features & Benefits

Gain control over your data

Monitor and regulate how your employees access, use, and transfer data via common channels, such as email, IM, printing, and USB drives — both in and away from the office.

Protect devices with powerful data encryption

Prevent unauthorized system access and render sensitive data unreadable in the event of device loss or theft by implementing full-disk encryption and access control on all endpoint devices. Encryption options include enterprise-grade drive encryption or management of native encryption for Apple FileVault and Microsoft BitLocker management.

Ensure continual file and folder protection

Automatically and transparently encrypt files and folders on the fly — before they move through and outside your organization.

Extend the reach of IT

By communicating with endpoints at a level beyond the operating system, ePO Deep Command allows security administrators to configure and remediate hard-to-manage endpoints from a central site, using an established and familiar management platform — McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.

Centralize and simplify your data security management

Use a single, centralized McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) console to implement and enforce mandatory, company-wide security policies that control how data is encrypted, monitored, and protected from loss. Centrally define, deploy, manage, and update data security policies that encrypt, filter, monitor, and block unauthorized access to confidential data.

Prove compliance with advanced reporting and auditing capabilities

Monitor real-time events and generate detailed reports that show auditors, senior management, and other stakeholders your compliance with internal and regulatory privacy requirements.
