McAfee Leads in Enterprise Endpoint Protection and Performance; Unifies Customer Approach to Emerging Security Threats

Endpoint Security Solutions Excel in Protection against Advanced Threats – Outranking the Competition

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 2, 2011 - McAfee today announced several market validations of its enterprise endpoint security technology, with independent proof of superior threat detection and endpoint performance, powered by a unique unified threat intelligence system and an integrated management platform.

McAfee® endpoint security provides continuous, updated, and powerful security against the entire spectrum of threats, from zero-day exploits to hacker attacks. As a core component of the McAfee Security Connected framework, McAfee endpoint security provides complete protection for all endpoints, including virtualized environments and all platforms such as Windows, Linux, Mac OS, mobile and embedded devices. This ensures secure, seamless access to business applications and corporate data.

Unlike other security companies that offer a fragmented management strategy with multiple infrastructures, overlapping functionality, and in some cases up to a dozen different management systems, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® platform is the only enterprise-class security management system to provide unified management of endpoint, data, and network security. The ePolicy Orchestrator platform provides an extensible framework for security management and integrated workflow automation with more than 100 McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partners.

McAfee enterprise endpoint security leads in industry tests:

“Enterprises trust McAfee endpoint security to provide the most comprehensive threat intelligence managed under a single infrastructure,” said Candace Worley, senior vice president and general manager, Endpoint Security, McAfee. “McAfee is committed to leveraging its worldwide footprint to meet customers’ needs and this latest release of VirusScan Enterprise software is a testament to that, as validated by multiple independent reviews. McAfee VirusScan Enterprise software is the world’s most widely adopted anti-malware product, deployed to over 60 million corporate endpoints.”
