Introducing the redesigned McAfee ePO 5.10

A single console for all your security management

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) provides a centralized management console that simplifies and accelerates your security effectiveness with visibility and control from device to cloud.


Unified view

Working six separate consoles is not the same as working an integrated console. Security admins should be inspired with a truly centralized management platform to help prioritize alerts.


Simplify operations

Throwing more tools at a problem causes chaos and siloed results. Security tools should work together with orchestrated controls, shared intelligence, and automated workflows.


Open is the new security paradigm

An open platform allows you to add new capabilities and intelligence while enabling tools or native controls such as Microsoft Windows Defender to collaborate as the threat landscape evolves.

McAfee provides an open architecture that integrates with partner and third-party products. Read White Paper >
