McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite

Secure Windows, Mac, and Linux systems with essential endpoint and data protection

A single, cost-effective security solution

McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite combines advanced email, web, and network security in an easy-to-manage solution that protects all of the devices that power your business: desktops, laptops, servers, smartphones, and tablets. And it’s flexible to work across multiple platforms — Windows, Mac, Linux, and mobile operating systems — so you don’t need to invest in other security point products as your business grows.

Advanced anti-malware and antivirus technology

Stop viruses, Trojans, worms, adware, spyware, and other potentially unwanted programs that target your devices and confidential company data. Our technology automatically detects and blocks malware — even previously unknown threats — in real time, before it installs and compromises your computers and servers.

Proactive email and web security

Ensure employees have safe access to email and web applications. McAfee intercepts more than 99% of spam, viruses, and phishing attacks before it reaches inboxes. And with built-in McAfee SiteAdvisor technology, color-coded website ratings display in your browser and search results, alerting you to potentially malicious sites as you surf. Security administrators can also block access to specific or entire categories of websites.

Integrated desktop firewall

A built-in desktop firewall stops hackers and identity thieves from gaining access to your computers and data — and instantly alerts you to any attempted intrusions. McAfee protects your systems and network by controlling Internet connections to and from users’ computers, and filters suspicious inbound and outbound network traffic.

Data protection for removable devices

Protect data on USB drives, DVDs, and other removable storage devices — no matter where it ends up. Device control technology monitors and restricts data copied to these devices to keep it from leaving company control.

Simplified, centralized management

The easy-to-use McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) online management console includes default settings for small businesses and automates core security processes such as updates, maintenance, and reporting.

A real-time snapshot of your security status

Get instant visibility into potential security problems and correct issues quickly. Real Time for McAfee ePO, a built-in feature of the McAfee ePO management console, helps you understand the state of your company’s security and quickly target updates, changes, and installations to the systems that need them.

Quick and easy deployment

We keep deployment simple. Install your suite with just four clicks and in less than 20 minutes.
