This integration of inbound and outbound filtering and anti-malware blocks spam, strips threats, reduces risky and unproductive surfing, and saves you money.

Maintained by experts in security and threat research — By routing your web and email traffic through our data centers, we are able to insert our best security between you and the threats. The McAfee Global Threat Intelligence network collects events from 100 million sensors and correlates activities across key threat vectors, including email, web, host, and network. This visibility allows you to detect and block malware, attacks, risky sites, spam and phishing, protecting you before the threats touch your network.

Internet use policy enforcement — Our service enforces your organization’s Internet use policy by automatically applying access rules to all policy-controlled web traffic. You can limit access to video sharing and other frivolous sites that take network resources from priority users. Your policies can guide our inspection of outbound emails. By keeping inappropriate or private company content under control, we help keep your business compliant with workplace requirements.

Server protection keeping you connected 24/7 — Block over 99% of spam and eliminate 90% of spam-related costs with a complete, multilayered email defense — and industry-leading low false positive rates. Our complete solution shields your critical messaging gateways and email servers from attack, instantly blocking denial-of-service attacks, directory harvest attacks, email bombs, and channel flooding. If your network or email server goes down, whether through disaster or design, our service keeps your employees, customers, partners, and suppliers connected 24/7. You may choose an option to retain email for one or more years with McAfee SaaS Email Archiving. With built-in encryption during transport and storage as well as advanced search features, you will be ready for growing records retention requirements and e-discovery requests.

Easy set-and-forget management experience — Our integrated web management portal speeds startup and management. Web-based dashboards allow easy monitoring, tuning, and reporting for easy visibility into inappropriate Internet use that reduces productivity, consumes bandwidth and storage resources, and can present legal liability.
