In Depth Anti-virus - McAfee SMG is based on the same anti-virus technology as our award-winning desktop product. The heart of McAfee anti-virus protection is an engine that blocks both known and unknown viruses. This protects you against zero-day attacks and new virus threats. McAfee SMG scans all inbound and outbound messaging traffic that use SMTP and POP3 protocols.
Advanced e-mail Content filtering - What if you could protect against inappropriate content coming into your network, as well as guard against sensitive information leaving the network, such as trade secrets, financial data, or the like? McAfee SMG's built-in e-mail content filtering can do both. With lexical scanning of e-mails and more than 300 types of attachments, McAfee SMG can block or modify messages that contain specific words or phrases that violate a content rule.
Anti-Spam and Anti-Phishing - McAfee SMG includes a built-in anti-spam module (licensed separately) that utilizes multiple highly sophisticated techniques to detect and block spam and phishing attacks. Advances in McAfee technology and processes deliver streaming updates every 10 minutes to ensure at least 95 percent effectiveness. Spam-blocking technologies include:
Blacklist and whitelist support
DNS blocklist support
Market Leading Performance - McAfee SMG provides the superior performance you need with a price you can afford. The 3300 appliance scans SMTP traffic at 210,000 messages per hour with anti-virus configured. By the use of built-in load sharing you can take advantage of multiple appliances when greater performance is required.
Comprehensive Scalable Management - McAfee SMG includes a built-in browser-based management system as well as McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO™). ePO allows you to centrally manage gateway devices, as well as desktop systems for all of your key security measures, such as anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, anti-phishing, and Web filtering solutions. Central management makes administration fast and easy and lowers your cost of ownership.

McAfee SMG lets you configure different security policies to meet the needs of these different groups. And to make it easy, McAfee SMG security policies can use your existing LDAP directory.
