McAfee has unveiled new Complete Endpoint Protection Enterprise and Business packages, aimed at offering firms better protection against the cyber threats facing them through hardware-enhanced security.
The two packages are the result of collaboration between McAfee and parent company Intel, and are claimed as the first to integrate security services from the chip level through to operating system and applications.
This holistic integration will allow customers to see and protect themselves from previously invisible attacks, according to McAfee.
Complete Endpoint Protection Enterprise and Complete Endpoint Protection Business debut McAfee's Deep Defender rootkit protection, plus dynamic whitelisting, risk intelligence and real-time security management services.
Key features included in the suites are McAfee's Real Time ePO analytics tool, Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software, Application Control for PCs and Risk Advisor tools. McAfee said the services will combine to offer administrators and IT managers a single pane of glass view of activity on their networks, letting them spot and react to incoming threats or atypical activity more quickly.
McAfee EMM integrates mobile device management and secure container into the McAfee ePolicyOrchestrator (ePO) platform,enabling customers to use a single pane of glass and integrated policy environment to manage all endpoints, inlcuding smartphones and tablets.
McAfee said the increased endpoint protection will help arm businesses of all sizes against the influx of new sophisticated attacks targeting them.
The explosion of devices in use in the enterprise multiplies the chance of an attack affecting the mobile workforce, who can unknowingly endanger other systems when reconnecting to the corporate network, McAfee said. The Complete Endpoint Protection suites are desinged to protect against this.
The unveiling follows widespread rumblings within the security community that the threat facing businesses is growing. Most recently security experts from Trend Micro, Kaspersky and F-Secure cited a recent boom in Apple Mac Malware as evidence of the increased threat.
