McAfee Provides Unified End-Point Management with Enterprise Mobility Management 9.5

Extends Security Infrastructure through ePolicy Orchestrator Integration

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- McAfee, Inc. (NYSE:MFE), today announced the general availability of the McAfee® Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee® EMM™) 9.5 software. McAfee EMM software now includes integration with the McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) platform, providing customers with unified management of their endpoint, network and data security products. The end-to-end visibility and control provided by the McAfee ePO platform will help IT administrators dramatically strengthen their protection and drive down the cost and complexity of managing their risk and security.

Additional Key New Features and Benefits of McAfee EMM 9.5 Software Include:

  • Enterprise App Store— Businesses can now offer recommended applications through a secure enterprise app store, while maintaining complete visibility into the applications that reside on these employee-owned devices
  • Enhanced iOS4 Support — McAfee EMM software features a full API set for mobile device management, allowing IT administrators the ability to create a list of recommended applications-based parameters such as the user and their roles and responsibilities, and sub-lists, which can be sent to individuals or groups
  • Enhanced Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Capabilities—McAfee now offers PKI capabilities through the Microsoft Certificate Authority, providing strong authentication for devices accessing the corporate network. Smartphones and tablets can now connect to the network VPN using client certificates, in the same way as laptops.
  • Support for the Android Tablet— In addition to support for the Android 2.2 and Motorola Droid Pro, McAfee EMM software now extends support for Android 2.3 and offers full support for Android-based tablets
  • Enhanced Lotus Domino Support — Lotus Domino users using Lotus Traveller 8.5.2 can now leverage the unique capabilities of McAfee EMM software.

"In the last year alone we've seen such a range of user devices in our workplace, from smartphones to Apple iPads," said Sumit Sehgal, information security manager at Riverside Healthcare. "The fact that these devices are mobile means that they're also easily lost or stolen, introducing risk. McAfee EMM software has really helped us to be able to say ‘yes' to these devices and manage them as an extension of our security infrastructure. We can now secure and manage mobile devices as we do any other endpoint."

"Consumerization of IT has changed the way organizations need to think about security," said Todd Gebhart, McAfee executive vice president and general manager of consumer, mobile and small business. "According to recent McAfee research commissioned by Evaluserve, as many as 41 percent of large organizations have reduced their IT costs and increased productivity by allowing employees to use their personal devices for business. With McAfee EMM software, IT managers can now secure their digital assets against data loss and increased threat vectors with the same control, visibility and security they have with their laptops, desktops, and servers."

McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management software lets companies extend the data center to smartphones and tablets in the same way that they do so for laptops, leveraging the native capabilities of the device and the enterprise IT infrastructure to deliver native applications. The McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management solution - with its scalable server-centric architecture - lets organizations manage the next generation of mobile devices with the same security, control, and visibility they have with their other endpoints.
