Email & Web Security

McAfee email and web security solutions minimize risk with integrated threat protection, data loss prevention, and advanced antimalware. With our Security Connected framework, you will gain confidence in your data going to and through the cloud, while minimizing complexity and cost. Enable legitimate use, while implementing policy-based inbound and outbound content security controls to support business goals and compliance.


McAfee Email Gateway

McAfee Email Gateway consolidates inbound threat protection, outbound encryption, advanced compliance, data loss prevention, and administration into a single, easy-to-deploy and user-friendly appliance. As a comprehensive email security solution, Email Gateway can stand alone or work in tandem with McAfee SaaS Email Protection & Continuity as anintegrated hybrid solution. It eliminates ineffective piecemeal defenses, simplifies multivendor security environments, and reduces operating costs — while significantly strengthening email security.

Email Gateway delivers:

Total inbound protection — Inbound protection goes beyond blocking spam. Email Gateway provides powerful antispam scanning technologies to identify and block incoming spam with over 99% accuracy. It also protects your network from malware, zero-hour threats, phishing, viruses, blended threats, directory harvest, denial of service (DoS), bounce back attacks, and spam surges.

Total outbound protection to keep your data secure — Available at no extra charge are encryption (push, pull, TLS, S/MIME, PGP) and built-in data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities that utilize the same text-matching dictionaries found in McAfee Data Loss Prevention — with the ability to scan over 300 document types. These compliance and DLP capabilities are fully used from the Email Gateway administrative interface or McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). Using sophisticated content-scanning technologies, multiple encryption techniques, and granular, policy-based message handling, Email Gateway prevents outbound data loss and keeps sensitive data secure.

Simple, powerful administration from within McAfee ePO — With Email Gateway, administrators can deliver superior email protection and document it with customizable, enterprise-class reporting, exportable report logs, real-time dashboards, and alerts. Email Gateway combines performance, scalability, and stability with a flexible delivery model to ensure maximum ROI.

A virtualized solution — The Email Gateway appliance is also available as a virtual appliance, so you can reap the benefits of virtualization. With lower costs than a physical appliance, a virtual appliance also provides maximum flexibility, including the ability to consolidate solutions on a single server.

Enhanced security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) — McAfee GTI is a comprehensive cloud-based threat intelligence service. 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. Email Gateway uses the message, network, and web reputation service to identify email messages carrying malicious payloads.


McAfee Web Protection

From web filtering and anti-malware scanning to deep content inspection and granular control over how Web 2.0 sites are used, McAfee Web Protection combines the security, control, and deployment flexibility you need. McAfee Web Protection offers all the features of McAfee Web Gateway and McAfee SaaS Web Protection.

Ultimate deployment flexibility — Deploy on location with appliances, in virtual environments, or in the cloud, or combine options for added deployment flexibility and high availability.

Advanced security — McAfee Web Protection layers numerous threat technologies to provide the most in-depth web security available. From opening content and scanning active elements in real time with the McAfee Gateway Anti-Malware Engine to comprehensive signature-based coverage and web reputation, the McAfee Web Protection layered approach optimizes several technologies for the best combination of security and performance.

Unified reporting — Advanced reporting aggregates data, regardless of delivery platform. It provides the information to illuminate how organizations use the web, helping to comply with regulations, identify trends, isolate problems, document inappropriate web activity, and tailor filtering settings to best enforce web usage policies.

McAfee SaaS Email Protection & Continuity

Filter emails in real time with a proxy-based approach

Get intelligent email processing that virtually eliminates risk of loss associated with system outages, message interception, or corruption from an infected email base. McAfee SaaS Email Protection leverages a proxy-based filtering approach that filters email in real time which, unlike the store-and-forward method used by other providers, does not write and store email messages to disk before forwarding them on to the recipient. The process acknowledges the inbound email traffic, immediately opens a connection to the recipient email server, and filters the message as it flows through the network stream environment and into your messaging system.

Keep users from clicking on malicious links within emails

McAfee ClickProtect, a feature of SaaS Email Protection and Continuity, helps you eliminate the phishing and malware threats from embedded URLs within an email message. As a core feature of the solution, it checks for changes in URL intent occurring between the time the message is scanned (scan-time), regardless of how harmless it may have appeared, and when the URL is clicked by a user (click-time). A safe-preview is provided to the end user, along with a full proactive behavioral analysis via emulation of the URL content leveraging the same antimalware technology in McAfee Web Protection. Administrators have flexibility to configure scan-time and click-time policies, create custom warning notifications, and enable URL emulation to protect users from the click. Forensic reporting of every URL-related event provides administrators unprecedented control and decision support.

Use graymail filtering to further reduce unwanted email

Unwanted mail could be legitimate bulk mail that was once solicited by the user, but now no longer wanted (i.e., industry newsletters and notifications), and may represent a significant nuisance to recipients. By using graymail filters, administrators can set graymail policies for individuals or groups, and even permit end users to enable this capability to keep mailboxes clear of graymail.

Automatically filter outbound emails to protect you and your recipients

Filter outbound email to protect your clients against malware, and to inspect outbound emails and attachments for inappropriate or company-private content, protecting your company against loss of sensitive information and potential legal liability. SaaS Email Protection and Continuity includes keyword filtering, attachment filtering, archive and compressed file integrity filtering, spam beacon and web bug detection and blocking, and multilevel HTML shield and content protection.

Encrypt sensitive company data to maintain compliance with privacy and security regulations

Protect your confidential outbound email with Transport Layer Security (TLS) , a feature that provides gateway-to-gateway encryption without disrupting the day-to-day workflow of your employees. The addition of McAfee SaaS Email Encryption enables easy-to-use, cloud-based encryption and built-in data loss prevention rules to help further ensure secure confidential information delivery.

Ensure easy management through Active Directory integration

Synchronize your account information for users and groups through the Directory Services Connector, eliminating the need to manually make changes in either the corporate Active Directory (AD) or your McAfee SaaS system.

Guarantee business continuity

Activate a secure, easy-to-use web interface for your users and administrators to compose, send, receive, and manage emails during any mail server outage or disaster with uninterrupted protection for all inbound and outbound messages. When your mail exchange server comes online again, McAfee intelligently synchronizes and delivers an accurate record of up to 60 rolling days of outage-period message activity.

Get a scalable, robust solution

Filtering billions of messages each month for organizations around the globe, McAfee SaaS Email Protection supports email networks of any size, in any location. The distributed design provides for geographic system deployment and its decoupled components allow for independent scaling or grouping. Our scalable systems architecture supports increased volume and growth; its fault-tolerant, multiple data centers handle excess capacity; and individual elements of the architecture can be scaled in response to traffic requirements. Effortless integration with all business networks is possible through the solutions’ native Internet standards support for SMTP, LDAP, MIME, XML-RPC web services API, LDAP/POP3 authentication, LDAP subscriber queries, and SQL interfaces.

Integrate flexible email routing

Keep multiple email domains in order. McAfee SaaS Email Intelligent Routing is an optional, cloud-based service that seamlessly adds new local domains to your existing public-facing domain, and redirects email to the appropriate servers and recipients. It simplifies email administration, lowers operating costs, and keeps your brand intact.

Archive email in the cloud

Add on McAfee SaaS Email Archiving, an optional, cloud-based service that simplifies email searches and eases archiving administration with a cost-effective solution that doesn’t require additional hardware or software. SaaS Email Archiving uses the same management console as McAfee SaaS Email Protection and Continuity.
