Want to learn more about McAfee Endpoint Security installation, configuration, and management? Here are some sample getting started resources:
Introduction to McAfee Endpoint Security
McAfee Endpoint Security is the newest security solution for endpoints, providing comprehensive next-generation security protection, simplified installation, and vastly improved performance over legacy security products. McAfee Endpoint Security optimizes, consolidates, and improves on protections formerly offered by McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention for Desktop, and McAfee SiteAdvisor web filtering, resulting in an integrated, efficient new platform.
McAfee Endpoint Security 10 facilitates layered and connected endpoint protection, providing comprehensive, intelligent defense against both known and unknown threats. This framework is the foundation for McAfee's next-generation endpoint security solution, integrating with McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange to offer a comprehensive, single pane of glass, enterprise security solution.
Endpoint Security Client
McAfee Endpoint Security is an integrated endpoint platform consisting of consolidated security modules:
- Threat prevention
- Web control
- Adaptive threat protection
All modules integrate into a single McAfee Endpoint Security interface, giving you the flexibility to choose which modules deploy on endpoint systems. Security modules work independently to provide comprehensive security layers, while leveraging common components and providing single-point management of endpoint security.
The client deployment package for each module is separate. You can use McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software or a third-party tool to deploy the client package. Simply select the client package to deploy using the installer that is shared by all modules for a consistent installation experience.
McAfee Endpoint Security policy configuration is centrally managed using McAfee ePO (on premises or cloud) or self-managed locally through the local user interface. McAfee ePO management extensions are easy to obtain through McAfee ePO Software Manager or McAfee downloads.
The following McAfee ePO management extensions are currently available for the most current McAfee Endpoint Security release:
- Endpoint Security Threat Prevention
- Endpoint Security Firewall
- Endpoint Security Web Control
- Endpoint Security Adaptive Threat Protection
Integrated with McAfee ePO dashboards
McAfee ePO includes integrated dashboard views for all McAfee Endpoint Security modules. For example, the McAfee Endpoint Security: Installation Status dashboard provides a view of all McAfee Endpoint Security modules that are installed on the endpoint systems. To learn more about all of the dashboards that are available, please refer to the Product Documentation Portal.
