Solve your web security challenges

Prevent sophisticated threats

Reduce your quantity of endpoint incidents by stopping zero-day malware and targeted attacks that evade traditional defenses like URL filtering and antivirus signatures. McAfee Web Protection combines comprehensive web filtering with behavior analysis to detect zero-day malware, and uncovers threats concealed within encrypted traffic through in-depth SSL inspection.

Share threat information

Integrate McAfee Web Protection with complementary solutions, such as McAfee Advanced Threat Defense and McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange, to enable more effective threat detection, reduce incident response times, and improve operational efficiency across the entire security infrastructure.

Extend web security everywhere

Maintain consistent protection for users wherever they reside with one policy across cloud and on-premises deployments. Reduce the cost of backhauling traffic to an on-premises gateway by routing to the cloud service for remote offices and off-network users.
