Total Protection for Endpoint enables companies to lower their overall cost of managing endpoint security with a completely integrated management console, ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). The advanced proactive security of anti-spyware and host IPS helps stop zero-day threats before outbreaks cause damage and downtime.

MSI International, a leading global recruiting firm, completed a survey of 488 ePO and non-ePO users and found that ePO users spend 38 percent less time on security reporting; spend 41 percent less time developing security policies; manage 30 percent more endpoints; use 50 percent less hardware; and that admins save about six hours per week.
