McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) is the market-leading tool for centralized, enterprise-class, system security management-delivering a coordinated, proactive defense against malicious threats for the enterprise. Administrators can scan and assess for system vulnerabilities, keep protection up-to-date, configure and enforce protection policies, and generate detailed graphical reports on McAfee Security and select third-party solutions.

One of the most difficult aspects of proactively managing a security policy is keeping all systems updated with the latest protection. McAfee ePO makes it easy to know whether you are up-to-date and delivers updates across you entire network at the click of a button. Using an intelligent design of distributed repositories, that puts none of the updating burden on the server, all updating is spread throughout the network - keeping network traffic low and performance high. Updates include McAfee Security DATs, Engines, Service Packs, Extra.DATs, Hot fixes or patches, which can all be deployed manually or automatically.

For never-before-seen updating speed, Express Global Updating can also be enabled. Express Global Updating dramatically improves the speed of updating by utilizing "SuperAgents" to distribute the load of communication and updating out to the global network - up to 50, 000 systems in an hour or less - all verified in McAfee ePO's powerful reporting. This saves bandwidth and greatly increases their ability to respond to new and emerging threats.

Locating non-compliant systems, tracing an outbreak to its source, or determining effectiveness of security policies is effortless with McAfee ePO's wide array of over forty pre-defined reports. Ranging from one-page executive security summaries to detailed information on virus activity, desktop firewall policy, system vulnerabilities, and Spam and content filtering policies - all of the information is at your fingertips. Customizing reports to suit your specific needs is just as easy.

McAfee ePO is designed with enterprise scalability in mind, managing up to 250, 000 users per server and easily operated from anywhere using a remote console. Policies covering every layer of malicious threat protection - from updating frequency, to personal firewall settings, to vulnerability scans, to file types to be scanned - even anti-spam and detailed content filtering - can be set per machine or per group and are entirely customizable by the administrator.

As an added feature of McAfee ePO, McAfee ThreatScan provides the administrator with a powerful network based scanner to proactively search for system vulnerabilities. Providing visibility to all network devices, within a given IP range, all potential areas of weakness and vulnerability are identified such as unprotected systems, open shares and vulnerable applications or operating systems. Proactively finding devices that are unseen, unprotected, unmanaged and vulnerable to attack helps improve system policy compliance and reduce infection rates and costs.

Changing threats require a change in protection strategy. With McAfee ePO, for the first time, you'll be able to bring your desktop firewall, anti-virus, anti-spam and content filtering tools to bear on malicious threats. You can build coordinated and cohesive protection. McAfee also recognizes that organizations choose to use anti-virus products from multiple vendors, so McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator manages and reports on Symantec and Dr Ahn desktop and server protection.

Small businesses often lack the dedicated expertise or time to focus adequately malicious threat protection. The Small Business Wizard allows for simple and rapid deployment of virus protection and security policies optimized for the small business environment. In five simple steps McAfee ePO is automatically populated with the available systems on the network, protection is deployed and policies implemented. No detailed security knowledge is required.

Extensibility and industry support has always been a key focus of ePolicy Orchestrator. As the first tool to offer management and reporting of third party anti-virus applications, like Symantec and Dr Ahn, Network Associates helps the Enterprise further extend the value of their security investment with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Fusion services. Delivered by the Network Associates Expert Services team, these services allow McAfee ePO to be integrated with other third-party security applications - providing the same level of centralized control and visibility across additional third party security layers.

McAfee ePO ensures that your mobile users are as well protected and easily managed as your LAN-connected users. By enforcing policy even when the laptop is not connected to the network, and making updates happen whenever a connection to the Internet is sensed, McAfee ePO effectively manages your unmanageables. And since the mobile user demands more flexibility, McAfee ePO automatically provides mobile users with updates from the nearest, most bandwidth-efficient repository and allows postponeable and resumable updating.

McAfee ePO is central to an Outbreak response allowing administrators to define a response specifically to the threat. At the click of a button systems can be commanded to "update now" and policy changes effected - this could be focused all systems or just key problem areas like the gateway. With McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator your response will be immediate and laser point focused to the task at hand.
