McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection — Enterprise

McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection — Enterprise

Strong, fast, scalable defense for every device, every threat

Next Steps:


It's easy to get enterprise security right. A single solution with a single management platform unifies 17 technologies to proactively protect all of your devices — PCs, Macs, Linux systems, smartphones, virtual machines, tablets, and servers. Simplify management and reduce costs while defending your endpoints from today’s most insidious and stealthy threats, including rootkits and advanced persistent threats (APTs).

With Complete Endpoint Protection — Enterprise, you can customize your enterprise’s security to create the right combination for each user community, from giving power users the freedom and flexibility they demand to applying the tightest control on shared systems. One suite brings you a “complete coverage” toolbox. From easy installation to real-time investigations, it’s all integrated and centralized for efficient management.

Complete protection — This comprehensive suite extends industry-leading threat protection to your data and your systems, protecting you where others fail. It finds, fixes, and freezes malware fast. Our Security Connected approach covers all the bases, layering hardware-enhanced technologies, dynamic whitelisting, smart scanning, advanced anti-malware, mobile protection, and more. Behavior and reputation protection integrates with cloud-based McAfee Global Threat Intelligence to protect against cyberthreats across all vectors — file, web, message, and network. And to help your security team take the right actions fast, Real Time for McAfee ePO brings instant visibility into your security posture and security software configurations and helps you fix things fast.

Complete simplicity — Installation is easy. With as few as four clicks and in just 20 minutes, you’re up and running. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) technology streamlines policy management across all devices and provides a single pane of glass for visibility. Additionally, to improve reaction time when threats strike, your security team can ask questions and perform actions in real time.

Complete performance — Choose security that supports business instead of slowing it down. Fewer, more efficient scans and advanced memory management techniques minimize impact on users. Superior performance across all platforms comes from advanced smart scanning and memory management techniques that optimize CPU and memory usage. For the greatest efficiency, dynamic whitelisting offers a no-scanning, compact desktop footprint for fixed-function devices.

Customer Testimonial

The future of IT is to securely enable businesses. Integris enables its employees by implementing McAfee’s Endpoint Mobility Management (EMM) to secure mobile devices and tablets, integrating EMM with ePO software helps to ease the strain to their IT department by providing one console to assess where the risk threshold lies.

inHouseIT benefits greatly from integrated reporting provided by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software, creating a central repository and dashboard for a comprehensive view on the IT health of an organization.

The ability to push application control out to a specific endpoint is greatly beneficial, it brings security to any machine and brings performance up. With whitelisting and the integrated nature of McAfee ePO software, Seagate is able to manage all facets of security under one, single pane of glass, making management much easier.

McAfee Application Control Extends the Life of Legacy Microsoft Windows XP Systems

McAfee Application Control provides an effective way to block unauthorized applications from running and will continue to support Windows XP systems even after Microsoft’s phase-out of support has taken effect.

Counter Stealthy Malware

The most menacing type of cyberattack is invisible. Using sophisticated techniques to hide its presence, stealthy malware may operate outside of the OS or move dynamically across endpoints to conceal the attackers’ actions. The risk to enterprises is real, with high-profile attacks such as Operation High Roller impacting companies around the globe. Traditional antivirus or intrusion prevention systems are no match for this new breed of stealthy malware; instead, enterprises need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.

Learn how network attacks can be avoided by utilizing a SIEM platform that combines historical data with real-time data from network sources and security policies to provide context around application usage, user behaviors, and other operations — for better, more accurate reporting.

Endpoint Security: It’s Not Just Black or White

Effective endpoint security requires more than just blacklisting or whitelisting — it requires a seamless integration of both for maximum endpoint safety.

Root Out Rootkits

This paper describes how McAfee Deep Defender moves endpoint security beyond the operating system. McAfee Deep Defender gets hardware assistance from Intel and uses a privileged early load position to uncloak, block, and remove the kernel-mode activities of stealthy rootkits.

The New Reality of Stealth Crimeware

With cybercrime on the rise, McAfee and Intel researchers believe that we need to re-envision how to detect and block stealthy malware.
