Features & Benefits

Core antivirus for physical servers

Deploy a highly effective set of core capabilities designed to block threats at the traditional endpoint. McAfee has earned a #1 ranking by NSS Labs against zero-day exploits and evasion attacks.

Optimized virtualization security

Get security optimized for virtualized environments, including your virtual machines in the cloud. McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced provides virus protection for virtual servers without compromising performance or security, helping you realize operational returns and more effective security management.

Full visibility of virtual machines

Discover not just physical servers but also hypervisors and virtual machines in both VMware vSphere and Amazon Web Services environments. Automatically discover when virtual machines are provisioned and automatically protect them with appropriate security policies.

Hardware-assisted security

Protect against the most advanced rootkits targeting physical servers. Our partnership with Intel allows McAfee to deliver hardware-assisted security and provide visibility into stealth malware infections — malware that is quietly spreading and evading current OS-based security solutions.

Host intrusion prevention

Safeguard against complex security threats that may otherwise be unintentionally introduced. Prevent intrusions, protect assets, and defend your company against known and emerging exploits, including zero-day attacks. With this stronger protection against exploits that target new vulnerabilities, your IT staff has more time for planning, testing, and deploying patches.

Block unauthorized applications

Allow only authorized software to run on devices and protect against zero-day exploits and advanced persistent threats (APTs) — without signature updates. McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced includes the industry’s strongest malware protection and significantly lowers host performance impact over traditional endpoint security controls.

Prevent unauthorized system changes

Provide continuous detection of system-level changes across distributed and remote locations, and prevent tampering by blocking unauthorized changes to critical system files, directories, and configurations. Track and validate every attempted change in real time on the server, enforcing change policy by a time window, source, or approved work ticket. This continuous control minimizes the impact from ad hoc or unauthorized changes.

Centralized management

Obtain single-pane manageability for physical and virtual servers, including those in the private and public cloud. The single-console environment provides comprehensive management for all McAfee server capabilities and lowers the total cost of ownership. All components of McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced are tightly integrated with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) security management platform for efficiently, centralized risk assessment, security management, and incident resolution.
