What you can’t detect can hurt you

If you’re running McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, McAfee Host IPS Firewall, or McAfee SiteAdvisor web filtering, you’re not using our latest and most effective endpoint protection. You’re also not using our strongest zero-day protection from the latest threats.

A recent study by AV-Comparatives shows that upgrading to McAfee Endpoint Security gives you a 25% higher protection rate than McAfee VirusScan Enterprise against zero-day threats. It also leverages machine learning and application containment to halt them in their tracks.

Endpoint security simplified

McAfee Endpoint Security is a free security upgrade that integrates several capabilities that were managed separately before. Upgrading to the current version means you get a shared ecosystem where collaboration to quickly detect, analyze, block, and contain attacks in progress can happen—while managing a single agent and significantly fewer policies.

This framework is built to centralize even more of your endpoint solutions. Instead of adding complexity and more management tools, you can plug in new capabilities as your business grows so you can more easily respond to, and manage, the threat defense lifecycle.

Step 2: Deploy Your New Endpoint Security

Install, configure, upgrade, and validate the McAfee solution in a non-production environment.

Perform validation testing to verify your McAfee products are functional, blocking and monitoring activity, and producing logs and events, which are viewable on client systems and from the McAfee ePO console.

Install, configure, upgrade, and validate the McAfee solution in a production environment. The activities listed in this phase will closely mirror the activities completed above. McAfee recommends following your organization’s practices for submitting change requests, performing system backups, and developing a recovery plan.
