McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention for Desktop

Industry-leading, proactive protection against zero-day threats

Critical intrusion prevention for your computers

McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention for Desktop safeguards your business against complex security threats that may be unintentionally introduced or allowed by desktops and laptops.

Safeguard against malicious threats

Three layers of protection prevent intrusions, protect assets, and defend against known and emerging exploits, including zero-day attacks at all levels: network, endpoint, and application.

Free up IT resources

Advanced vulnerability shielding against exploits that target new vulnerabilities means IT has more time for planning, testing, and deploying patches.

Get automatic security updates

Automatic updates allow your team to target specific vulnerabilities and block emerging threats.

Protection around the clock

McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, our integrated cloud-based threat intelligence service, works in real time, 24 hours a day, to protect against cyberthreats.

Safeguard business desktops

Get the broadest IPS coverage

Identify and block known attacks. A stateful firewall applies policies, bars unsolicited inbound traffic, and controls outbound traffic.

Create custom, location-based policies

Apply different levels of security using rules based on the endpoint’s connection—on the corporate network, over VPN, or from a public network—with connection-aware protection.

Save time and cut costs

Protect and manage all desktops across your enterprise with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, the scalable, centralized platform for easy deployment, management, reporting, and auditing.

These are minimum system requirements. Actual requirements will vary depending on the nature of your environment.
