Embedded security for retail, medical, and critical infrastructure

Embedded security solutions from McAfee help manufacturers ensure their products and devices are protected from cyberthreats and attacks. Embedded system and device security solutions span a range of technologies, including application whitelisting, antivirus and anti-malware protection, device management, and encryption—and all leverage industry-leading McAfee Global Threat Intelligence. Our solutions can be tailored to meet the specific design requirements for a manufacturer’s embedded device and its architectures.

Security features


Anti-malware protection

Application whitelisting prevents malware from compromising and infecting devices.


Comprehensive threat awareness and analysis

Where devices need to access the internet and communicate across networks, ensure that traffic coming across the network is safe for devices to use.


Strong data encryption

When devices need to communicate securely, embedded security software protects data at rest and in motion.


Streamlined device management

Ensure devices fall within the various compliance and regulatory frameworks.


Compliance with industry regulations

Ensure devices fall within the various compliance and regulatory frameworks, including HIPAA, FA, PCI DSS, and NERC CIP.


Data loss prevention

Provide the highest levels of protection for sensitive data on devices.

Security problems solved

Built-in application whitelisting and change control technology lock down devices, protecting against unauthorized malware and changes that could take a system offline and negatively impact your customers’ experience and reputation.

With security integrated into your device, you and your customers stay compliant and avoid incidents that can result in high maintenance and service costs, such as:

  • Zero-day attacks
  • Unauthorized software changes that impact system availability
  • High partner support costs related to device security problems
  • Frequent, costly OS patching
  • High field maintenance costs tied to unauthorized changes


Our technologies support a growing number of embedded devices across multiple industries. With a flexible, open architecture, McAfee solutions for embedded systems and devices can be customized for your requirements.
