McAfee VirusScan Enterprise
The ultimate way to keep viruses out of your Microsoft Windows operating systems
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise combines anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, and intrusion prevention technologies to stop and remove malicious software. It also extends coverage to new security risks and reduces the cost of responding to outbreaks with the industry’s lowest impact on system performance.
With VirusScan Enterprise, you get:
Maximum defense against malware — Safeguards your systems and files from viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, and other security risks. It detects and cleans malware, and allows you to easily configure policies to manage quarantined items.
Proactive protection from attacks — Real-time scanning ensures all your systems, including remote locations, are protected from current and emerging threats. VirusScan Enterprise also guards against buffer-overflow exploits that target vulnerabilities in Microsoft applications.
Easy, centralized management — The McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform is the centralized management console for deploying policies, managing security alerts, and viewing automated reports.
Enhanced security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence — McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (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. VirusScan Enterprise uses the McAfee GTI file reputation service to identify suspicious files before they are necessarily identified as carrying malicious payloads.
Keeping networks free from a wide range of threats—viruses, worms, rootkits, and Trojans—is more challenging than ever. Whether your organization is a global enterprise with full-time security staff or a small or mid-sized business, McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise ensures that your endpoint servers, desktops, and laptops remain malware free.
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise proactively stops and removes threats, extends coverage for new security risks, and reduces the cost of managing outbreak responses. And even without an update, it stops zero-day threats and mitigates the window of vulnerability—the time between the discovery of a vulnerability and when fixes are deployed. Plus, with McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, you have the flexibility to detect and block malware based on your business needs: on access, on demand, or on a schedule.

With McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, your critical servers and data are kept intact and available for business. For added protection, we lock down McAfee VirusScan Enterprise files and services so that malicious threats and attacks don’t disable them.
