McAfee releases first data protection offering with powerful encryption technology

McAfee, Inc. has released McAfee Total Protection for Data, a comprehensive solution delivering complete protection, full visibility and control of confidential data anytime and anywhere. The new solution includes endpoint encryption, device control, and host data loss prevention (DLP). 

McAfee Total Protection for Data was created in response to the growing number of regulations placed on enterprises that require them to ensure customer privacy and data confidentiality.  McAfee protects data regardless of how the data is used, stored, accessed or located. Customers receive comprehensive monitoring and protection of all communication channels including corporate E-mail, personal E-mail, instant messaging, file transfer, P2P file sharing, Web mail and other applications. The inclusion of end-point encryption protects businesses if a computer is ever lost or stolen.

Now enterprises can ensure that sensitive data can not be used by those that are not authorised to see the data, said Eric Sommerton, vice president, data protection business unit at McAfee.   The new solution is the first offering to truly protect businesses from the ramifications of data loss. 

Completely Integrated Endpoint Protection

Through integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), Total Protection for Data offers completely integrated end-to-end endpoint protection.  Customers can leverage their existing agent and management console for easy deployment, management and reporting. The solution is customised to meet customers current needs and scales to meet future needs.  Centralised policy management and enforcement keeps control of data security where it belongs in the hands of security experts.

McAfee data encryption ensures Safe Harbor protection by protecting enterprises from the risks of public disclosure, financial loss, brand damage, competitive disadvantage, lost customers and non-compliance.
