McAfee releases Endpoint for Mac

updated 10:40 am EDT, Tue October 13, 2009

Anti-virus, anti-spyware for enterprise

Noting the rise of Macs in the workplace, McAfee has released Endpoint for Mac, allowing centralized anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall control, as well as application protection. The software allows IT administrators to use the same basic security console that works with Windows machines for their Mac users.

Endpoint for Mac includes always-on and on-access anti-virus protection, anti-spyware protection based on a database of known malware, and app protection designed to prevent malware from modifying existing programs. Endpoint can also be used to prevent attacks aimed at Macs running Windows through Boot Camp.

The software works with Mac OS X 10.4 or later, including Snow Leopard. Buyers must contact McAfee for pricing.

    They're keeping the price a secret?

    Live chat is not available as offered. Does it integrate with ARD? That would be nice. I'm a little worried that they can't deploy a simple PDF document (try clicking on the business brief on securing macs).

    More crapware from a company that specializes in it.

    Rather use ESET

    As I understand it ESET is entering the Mac market early next year. This is the only anti virus software I use on the PCs at work.

    Not that we have a 'today' need for protection on Macs, but to think it will never come is a bit naive.
