Thwart threats with dynamic whitelisting

Reduce risks from unauthorized applications and code

Allow only trusted applications to run on your endpoints, fixed-function devices, and servers. McAfee Application Control also stops malware from executing.

Save time and lower costs

A dynamic trust model eliminates the need for signature updates or labor-intensive list management, and requires negligible CPU and memory usage.

Reduce patch cycles and protect memory

Maintain your regular patch cycles and prevent whitelisted applications from being exploited via memory buffer overflow attacks on Windows 32- and 64-bit systems.

Inform and empower users with user-friendly notifications

Educate desktop users about disallowed applications with informative pop-up messages that can prompt them to seek approvals via email or helpdesk requests.

Thwart advanced persistent threats

Know the reputation of every file and application in your environment with real-time McAfee Global Threat Intelligence that automatically categorizes them as good, bad, and unknown.
