McAfee launches web protection service

The new cloud-based service to provide protection from malware and other web-borne threats

By CBR Staff Writer

McAfee, a security technology company, has launched McAfee Web Protection Service, a software-as-a-service web security providing protection from malware and other web-borne threats without any on-premise requirements.

The new cloud-based service offers customers web security protection through a SaaS deployment option. With McAfee Web Protection Service, companies no longer have to deploy on-premise applications or gateway appliances to achieve a level of security, said the company.

According to the company, McAfee Web Protection Service is based on its McAfee Web Gateway technology and addresses all of the key business issues surrounding internet use in the workplace: security, organizational compliance, and policy control. With no applications or hardware to install or deploy, the service provides organizations with immediate and reliable web protection.

The company also said that McAfee Web Protection Service includes: reputation-based filtering; anti-malware protection; remote offices and user support; transparent user authentication; flexible policy manager: and informative reports and dashboards.

Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager of software-as-a-service at McAfee, said: The McAfee Web Protection Service incorporates all of the knowledge and experience we’ve gathered through years of proven web security and anti-malware protection. We are leveraging our best-in-class threat intelligence delivered from the cloud and we will continue to invest and develop our core technology to keep pace with evolving security threats.
