Features & Benefits

Simplify installation and deployment

Streamline security setup with rapid Internet installation. McAfee customizes an installation link per account. You simply forward the installation link via email to all licensed users for quick, online deployment. There are no FTP sites to visit nor any CDs or complex manuals to read. Additional push or silent installation options are also available.

Lower the total cost of security

Reduce capital equipment investments and security licensing costs. With McAfee’s Security-as-a-Service (SaaS), there’s no need to buy additional security management software, hardware, or technical support. Get integrated security, automated updates for uninterrupted protection, and 24/7 technical support all through a single annual subscription.

Streamline security management

Monitor virus, spyware, and firewall protection, and easily modify security policies from the web-based McAfee SecurityCenter management console, accessible via any Internet browser. Customize reporting dashboards, schedule reports, and run virus scans. Even manage security updates via the Internet without requiring a local network connection.

Block viruses and other malicious threats

Detect viruses, spyware, adware, and other potentially unwanted programs before they install and compromise desktops, laptops, and servers. Integrated firewall protection keeps hackers and identity thieves out. McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, integrated into SaaS Endpoint and Email Protection Suite, delivers instant behavioral-based protection, alerting you to unknown threats and closing the security gap.

Search online safely

Trust McAfee SiteAdvisor ratings to alert users to potentially dangerous websites before they click. Web filtering capabilities block malicious or unwanted websites.
