McAfee Total Protection includes anti-virus, anti-spyware

McAfee, Inc. announced the release of its Total Protection solution, McAfee Total Protection for Enterprise 2.0.

The latest release updates key components including McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise and McAfee Policy Enforcer network access control, and adds McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise to Total Protection for Enterprise Advanced.

McAfee NAC is a software-based solution with three major components: Policy Enforcer server, Policy Enforcer sensor and Policy Enforcer scanner. Policy Enforcer is part of McAfee Total Protection for Enterprise — Advanced, which offers a single agent and a single management console. McAfee Policy Enforcer integrates with the popular ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) management system to provide robust reporting options of compliance in corporate networks. This provides customers with a record of “due care” taken to help prevent infections and outbreaks.

Policy Enforcer2.0 is now certified as compatible for Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC). Products certified for Cisco Network Admission Control, a set of technologies built on an industry initiative led by Cisco, use the network infrastructure to enforce security policy compliance on all devices seeking access to network resources.  NAC Certification will allow McAfee customers who also have NAC-enabled Cisco hardware in their environment to grant network access to compliant and trusted endpoint devices (PCs, servers, and PDAs, for example) and restrict the access of noncompliant devices, thereby helping prevent damage from potential security threats.

McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i and McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.5 provide protection from viruses, worms, spyware, adware, rootkits, hacker attacks, exploits and more, for desktops and servers.  McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise 8.5 uses behavioural technology to prevent unknown or new variants of spyware and other unwanted programs that are being used by today’s organized cyber-criminals.
