Features & Benefits

Core antivirus for physical servers

Get core anti-malware for Windows and Linux servers using McAfee VirusScan Enterprise and McAfee VirusScan Enterprise for Linux. Deploy a highly effective set of core capabilities designed to block threats at the traditional endpoint. McAfee has earned a #1 ranking by NSS Labs against zero-day exploits and evasion attacks.

Optimized virtualization security

Get security optimized for virtualized environments, including your virtual machines in the private cloud using McAfee MOVE AntiVirus. McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced provides virus protection for virtual servers without compromising performance or security, helping you realize operational returns and more effective security management. The McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced supports multiple hypervisors. Integration with VMware NSX now provides customers with automatic deployment of McAfee Security Virtual Appliances from the VMware NSX console.

Full visibility of virtual machines

Discover and manage not only physical servers but also hypervisors and virtual machines in VMware vSphere, Amazon Web Services, OpenStack, and Microsoft Azure through McAfee Data Center Connectors. Automatically discover when virtual machines are provisioned and automatically protect them with appropriate security policies.

Visibility and control over network communications between virtual machines

McAfee Agentless Firewall is an agentless host firewall that leverages the VMware vCloud Networking and Security application and provides the administrator with new capabilities. These include creating network communication policies to separate security groups without the need for dedicated hardware and VLANs, registering multiple vShield manager servers into McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, and validating evidence of isolation through comprehensive dashboards and reporting. Administrators can meet regulatory compliance audits by using this to isolate data centers, clusters or resource pools to protect sensitive data.

Create trusted Compute tools

With the integration of McAfee Boot Attestation Service, utilizing Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), the Advanced suite can determine the trustworthiness of VMware ESXi hypervisors and then display the trust status on the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator console.

Hardware-assisted security

Protect against the most advanced rootkits targeting physical servers with McAfee Deep Defender. Our partnership with Intel allows McAfee to deliver hardware-assisted security and provide visibility into stealth malware infections — malware that is quietly spreading and evading current OS-based security solutions.

Protect from intrusions

McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention provides the benefit of safeguarding against complex security threats that may otherwise be unintentionally introduced. It prevents intrusions, protect assets, and defends your company against known and emerging exploits including zero-day attacks. With stronger protection against exploits that targets new vulnerabilities, your IT staff has more time for planning, testing, and deploying patches.

Block unauthorized applications with whitelisting

McAfee Application Control enables administrators to only allow authorized software to run on servers and thereby protect servers from zero-day exploits and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Since there is no need for signature updates, this results in faster protection. McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced includes the industry’s strongest malware protection and significantly lowers host performance impact over traditional endpoint security controls.

Prevent unauthorized system changes

McAfee Change Control provides continuous detection of system-level changes across distributed and remote locations and prevents tampering by blocking unauthorized changes to critical system files, directories, and configurations, saving time for administrators when troubleshooting security breaches.  McAfee Change Control tracks and validates every attempted change on the server in real time, enforcing change policy by a time window, source, or approved work ticket. This continuous control minimizes the impact from ad hoc or unauthorized changes.

Centralized management

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator provides single-pane manageability for physical and virtual servers, including those in the private and public cloud for greater security visibility. The single-console environment provides comprehensive management for all McAfee server security capabilities and lowers the total cost of ownership. All components of McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced are tightly integrated with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) security management platform for efficiently centralized risk assessment, security management, and incident resolution.
