McAfee DeepSAFE

Security beyond the OS — The next frontier of protection from McAfee and Intel

McAfee DeepSAFE technology was jointly developed from McAfee and Intel, enabling McAfee to build hardware-assisted security products that take advantage of a deeper security footprint. McAfee DeepSAFE technology sits beyond the operating system and close to the silicon, allowing McAfee products to gain an additional vantage point in the computing stack to better protect systems.


McAfee DeepSAFE technology delivers:

  • A technology platform for future security solutions
  • A trusted view of system events beyond the operating system
  • A new method to block sophisticated advanced persistent threats (APTs) and stealth techniques in real time, before they have a chance to hide
  • The ability to uncover threats that traditional operating system-based security does not detect

Unlike traditional security solutions, McAfee DeepSAFE technology operates beyond the operating system to provide real-time kernel monitoring to detect and block advanced, hidden threats, such as stealth rootkits and APTs. McAfee DeepSAFE technology changes the way businesses think about security by providing security beyond the operating system and intelligence-in-depth where security is integral to hardware, network, systems, applications, and databases.

McAfee and Intel are uniquely capable to deliver hardware-assisted security under the Security Connected framework from McAfee, providing protection never before possible from software-only solutions.
