McAfee Email Protection by McAfee

Whether you are looking for email security onsite, in the cloud, or an integrated hybrid of both, McAfee Email Protection delivers email security the way you want it. Going beyond anti-spam and malware protection, Email Protection integrates data loss prevention technology, content-based policy enforcement, click-time link scanning, and continuity services to ensure email access during server outages. For the most sophisticated and targeted email attacks, integration with McAfee Advanced Threat Defense provides a closed-loop solution capable of eliminating the stealthy and zero-day malware often used to enter organizations through spear phishing.

McAfee Email Protection provides the ultimate in security and flexibility. Security is delivered from McAfee Labs, providing the most comprehensive Global Threat Intelligence. You can choose a pure cloud implementation (blocking all inbound and outbound threats), an onsite solution for the more hands-on control, or a multi-layered deployment that combines the strengths of both through a single management and reporting console. With McAfee Email Protection, you can deploy what you need now or have the flexibility for future changes.

 

McAfee Firewall Enterprise by McAfee

Overview McAfee Firewall Enterprise defends critical assets, such as regulated data repositories (customer, financial, and healthcare data), email and web servers, extranets, and data centers. This proxy-based firewall also offers application visibility and deep application controls for defense, delivers strong policy-based controls, blocks the latest threats, and eliminates unwanted traffic. Firewall Enterprise identifies users and sees the host applications actually used to initiate network connections. A first for the network security industry, this unique host and firewall integration works to identify potential anomalies and threats throughout the inside of an organization’s network.

Advanced firewall security capabilities, such as application identification, reputation-based global intelligence, automated threat feeds, encrypted traffic inspection (SSH/SSL), intrusion prevention, antivirus, and content/URL filtering, block attacks before they occur. Unlike other solutions, McAfee includes these additional security services at no additional charge.

Firewall Enterprise also includes enhanced firewall security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI). McAfee GTI is a comprehensive cloud-based threat intelligence service. Already integrated into McAfee security products, it works in real time, 24 hours a day, to protect customers against cyberthreats across all vectors — file, web, message, and network. McAfee GTI offers the broadest threat data, most robust data correlation, and most complete product integration in the industry. McAfee’s GTI network allows enabled products to evaluate threats on multiple vectors in real time, leading to faster identification of threats and higher capture rates. Firewall Enterprise uses the McAfee GTI network connection reputation service to identify domains, IP addresses, and ports that may be hosting malware attacks, and block those attacks. Firewall Enterprise also uses web reputation to identify URLs that may be infected or hosting malware attacks, as well as sites hosting undesirable content.

McAfee also offers proven centralized management, right-click integration with ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software for endpoint data and mature migration tools to move from legacy firewalls to ours. Firewall Enterprise fully supports McAfee’s SIEM solutions too, including McAfee Enterprise Security Manager and McAfee Event Reporter, providing customizable views and reports for all firewalls across a customer’s global network. This high-assurance firewall solution offers very flexible deployment options — from virtualized software to custom-built hardware to availability on the Crossbeam high-performance platform and running on CloudShield’s trusted cyber platform. Firewall Enterprise is a best fit for organizations that need high-assurance security to protect critical assets inside the network as part of a layered defense strategy.

McAfee Firewall Enterprise Control Center (sold separately) — Offers centralized, enterprise-class network firewall policy management for global-scale deployments.

McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) by McAfee

Security and Management for Mobile Devices, Data, and Applications

McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee EMM) manages and secures the mobile workforce. McAfee EMM delivers a simplified, streamlined way to enable productivity with confidence in a world where users, and their devices, go everywhere and anywhere.

Comprehensive Mobile Security

Mobile productivity presents risks to mobile devices and data, including malware, loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Businesses work hard to develop their intellectual property, partner and customer lists, and trade secrets so it’s a top priority to protect that mobile data. This is achieved through policy-based security, including malware and app protection, that’s easy to use and manage.

Support for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Employee device choice can reduce costs, however it adds complication for IT. When an employee-owned, consumer-oriented device is used for business, additional privacy, control, usage, policy, security, and data protection issues need to be addressed to ensure that business data is protected.

Single Pane of Glass for Managing and Securing All Endpoints

McAfee EMM is fully managed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) management software. McAfee EMM and McAfee ePO software enable enterprises to manage and secure mobile users and devices right alongside traditional endpoints like laptops, workstations, and servers, using the same familiar console and infrastructure.
