McAfee Endpoint Threat Defense

Detect and contain both known and unknown threats

A new generation of advanced malware protection

McAfee Endpoint Threat Defense secures patient-zero attacks at the first sign of malicious activity and immediately shares threat intelligence across components to protect all endpoints in your enterprise.

Detect and stop zero-day malware

Static and dynamic behavioral analysis, and intelligence synthesized from local, global, and third-party sources block advanced threats.

Combine machine learning with threat intelligence

Machine learning and shared threat intelligence continually evolve the threat models used for reputation and behavioral analysis to drive faster, more efficient, and accurate threat protection.

Limit exposure to malware at the endpoint

Immediately block greyware, while maintaining productivity, by stopping known malicious behavior from infecting the endpoint.

Share threat data with all connected security solutions

Leverage Data Exchange Layer to combine multiple threat sources and instantly share the data with other security solutions, including third-party solutions. Integrated components reduce complexity and automatically evolve security to stay ahead of emerging threats.

Stop advanced threats before they infect the endpoint

Protect endpoints with multi-stage detection

Reputation scoring derived from shared threat intelligence, pre-execution static analysis, and dynamic behavioral analysis block more threats than signature- or static-only protection.

Unify and simplify management

Gain greater control, visibility, and flexibility through a single pane of glass that uses unified workflows, dynamic and automated queries, and dashboards to simplify security management.

Increase capacity and focus

Unified intelligence, components, and management allow you to resolve more threats faster, while optimizing scale and flexibility.
