McAfee Endpoint Security is an advanced threat defense system suitable for the fast-growing business environment, providing detection tools, an integrated firewall, and web control capabilities. McAfee Endpoint Security provides a sturdy defense mechanism for network computers against zero-day attacks, or malware transmitted via email and the Internet.
McAfee Endpoint Security comes in two editions, one for centrally managed computers (EPO managed), and the other for self-managed workstations. It is easy to deploy and configure and features an intuitive administration panel for users to monitor the status of its modules, check the activity logs, and browse the quarantined files.
While the workstation is monitored in real-time by the client app of McAfee Endpoint Security, the user can also start a new on-demand scan anytime he considers fit. The user has two options to choose from, namely quick or full scans. Custom file analysis is not available, but the user can scan a file or a folder on the system using right-click scanning.
There are three separate modules McAfee Endpoint Security comes with, namely Threat Prevention, Firewall, and Web Control. It is easy to figure out what each does, all working together to detect potential dangers before they reach a user’s PC. McAfee Endpoint Security features both signature-based and behavioral detection engines, which complement each other to provide a powerful protective shield. When a suspicious file is spotted, McAfee Endpoint Security warns and prompts the user for action, logging the event at the same time. The quarantine area safely stores critical data until the user decides to remove them.
With a firewall that filters network traffic and Internet security features that protect the user during online browsing sessions, McAfee Endpoint Security finds its place right next to its competitors. Moreover, thanks to the Threat Intelligence module, details about a file’s reputation can be instantly shared across the network, building a security system that gets better and better.
