They are based out of California and offer a variety of products and solutions aimed at keeping data safe from would-be thieves and hackers. Their areas of expertise include risk and compliance, endpoint protection, security management, database security, data protection, and more.
Their Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution provides both security and administrative control over a mobile device system. It allows for the enforcement of encryption and authentication standards across a company, gives IT admins the power to remotely wipe devices that are lost or stolen. It also offers the ability to have secure separated containers for BYOD devices that run Android. When an employee leaves the company, McAfee’s software can automatically remove only the company’s information and settings, leaving personal info intact. Vulnerable devices will be quickly detected and quarantined, or blacklisted from the system. In addition, McAfee’s EMM can locate devices that are connected to its network, remotely lock/unlock a device, and remotely install/disable applications on connected devices. Through one console, IT admins can monitor and control all devices that are connected to the EMM system.
