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.
