Best Anti-Malware Management

Winner: McAfee for McAfee Endpoint Protection Suite

McAfee Endpoint Protection includes sophisticated anti-malware protection to protect companies from the various vectors that cybercriminals use to infect endpoints and steal data. This solution includes a number of technologies to stop viruses, trojans, rootkits, spyware, adware, spam, phishing attacks and other malware. It provides a set of layered technologies that are deployed on the endpoint or email servers to prevent malware from infecting endpoints.

This tool includes multiple technologies to provide a layered protection scheme to stop malware that differentiates it from competitors. McAfee's virus-scanning solution includes buffer overflow protection to stop buffer overflow attacks, access protection rules to limit/stop damage from malware, and on-access caching to speed up malware performance. Finally, it includes anti-spam and anti-malware protection that is deployed on email server (Domino or Exchange) to provide another layer of protection. All this technology is managed by a single integrated management console making it easy and more cost effective to manage.

This solution helps surpass corporate budgetary requirements by allowing a customer to purchase a competitively priced suite of technologies that provides complete protection against all malware. This solution not only comes with complete malware protection, it also includes a desktop firewall, device control and anti-spam for email servers. This added protection eliminates the need to purchase other standalone products from McAfee or other vendors, allowing companies to consolidate and save. For the price of the other traditional anti-malware solutions, McAfee provides the ability to consolidate its security protection and get more tiers of protection.

Enterprises can leverage their investment in one solution from a single vendor allowing them to reduce their costs and more quickly receive a positive ROI on their purchase. Additionally, with the single integrated management platform, called ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), companies can lower their overall security management costs.

McAfee has more than 38,000 corporate business customers and more than 60 million endpoints under management with its enterprise endpoint protection security suites and endpoint solutions. Overall, McAfee market share is approximately 23 percent.
