Web protection from the cloud

McAfee released SaaS Web Protection. The new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Web security solution combines the reporting capabilities and features from McAfee solutions with the platform architecture that powered the MX Logic solution. The new cloud-based service protects enterprises from malware and other Web-borne threats without any on-premise requirements.

McAfee SaaS Web Protection provides high Web protection rates by leveraging the McAfee Global Threat Intelligence network. This network uses millions of threat sensors and more than 350 full-time security experts around the globe to provide customers with real-time – and even predictive – threat correlation and protection from malware, spam, trojans and other Internet-borne threats.

The McAfee SaaS Web Protection solution now provides:

More comprehensive reporting: Enterprises need scalable, comprehensive reporting to understand their web traffic and the threats this traffic presents. McAfee SaaS Web Protection gives organizations the tools they need to understand today’s web traffic. IT staff can easily identify trends, investigate potential problems, and analyze security threats.

Simplified policy enforcement and controls: The new service provides automatic enforcement of acceptable usage policy, reduces corporate liability, and improves employee productivity. Additionally, organizational policies enable granular controls for Web security and usage.

Early protection: Threats are blocked in the cloud before they reach the customer network. Relying on extensive knowledge of Internet entities and the constantly changing global threat landscape, the McAfee TrustedSource technology enhances Web filtering by identifying potentially malicious behavior and enabling organizations to dynamically block these threats in real-time.

Rapid deployment and unlimited scalability: Built atop what McAfee believes to be the world’s most massively scalable, multi-tenant platforms, the McAfee SaaS Web Protection solution can be rapidly deployed anywhere around the world, and for an unlimited amount of users without any performance degradation. McAfee maintains an extensive network of world-class data centers to ensure maximum speed and redundancy.

Remote protection: McAfee SaaS Web Protection also provides the same level of Web security for remote offices and mobile users. This enables corporate security policies to be centrally managed and enforced for all users, even when they are not behind the corporate firewall.
