McAfee Security for Business

Complete email, web, and computer security

Multilayered security for PCs, servers, email, and web

Desktops, laptops, file servers, and email power your business and drive your employees’ success. McAfee Security for Business secures all of these critical computing resources from the latest hacker threats. It also adds a powerful layer of web security that filters website content to stop online threats.

Easy to install. Easy to maintain.

No hardware to buy. No management server to install. With McAfee Security for Business, everything is in the cloud, saving you time and money so you can focus on taking care of your customers, rather than managing security. Setup takes just minutes using a simple URL link or Active Directory to install the client on each device so it receives security updates automatically. McAfee handles all ongoing security management, but you can easily make changes to settings or generate reports via our SecurityCenter online management console.

Essential anti-malware protection

Viruses. Trojans. Spyware. Adware. We stop them all. Our technology automatically detects and blocks malware — even previously unknown threats — in real time, before it installs and compromises your computers and servers. Integrated McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) is the same technology that powers McAfee security products used by our largest Fortune 500 customers — and you get it in our affordable, cloud-based solution.

Email security simplified

An unwanted email can be more than a nuisance if it contains malicious links or phishing content targeting your company’s data. McAfee blocks more than 99% of spam, viruses, phishing attacks, and other email threats in the cloud, preventing this traffic from getting anywhere close to your network. We put your email traffic through five separate filters, so we catch the junk and send legitimate messages through to your inboxes — technology that gives McAfee the lowest false-positive rate in the industry. And with built-in email continuity, you’ll never miss an email if your server goes down.

Always-on security

Maximize your protection with minimal work. Security updates are automatic, fast, and won’t slow down your systems.

Built-in network protection

Integrated desktop firewall protection stops hackers and identity thieves from gaining access to your computers and data — and instantly alerts users 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.

Safe web browsing

The web is filled with malicious software and it only takes a single click to infect a computer or network. McAfee Security for Business provides two easy-to-use features to minimize these threats. Built-in McAfee SiteAdvisor color-coded website ratings display in your browser and search results, alerting you to potentially malicious sites as you surf. Advanced web filtering provides another layer of control, allowing you to block access to individual or entire categories of websites that are either inappropriate or dangerous.

Extra analysis for Web 2.0 content

More malware is spreading through infected Web 2.0 sites and browser vulnerabilities. McAfee not only blocks web traffic that violates your Internet-use policies, but gives permitted traffic extra analysis, uncovering malware and other threats buried in websites.

Affordable security with 24/7 support

A single, low-cost monthly or annual subscription offers continuous protection, automatic security updates and upgrades, and around-the-clock technical support over the phone and online.

The Cost of Free — A Cautionary Tale

Call it freeware, shareware, free open source, or loss leader giveaways, “free” software, especially within a security context, can prove to be surprisingly costly when you consider the internal and external costs of its maintenance, modifications, coordination, and monitoring.
