November 19, 2018

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 19, 2018--McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced it was named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Protection Platforms. Gartner defines an Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) as a solution deployed on endpoint devices to prevent file-based malware, to detect and block malicious activity from trusted and untrusted applications, and to provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to dynamically respond to security incidents and alerts.

“The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice is a recognition of vendors in this market by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings.” To ensure fair evaluation, Gartner maintains rigorous criteria for recognizing vendors with a high customer satisfaction rate. For this distinction, a vendor must have a minimum of 50 published reviews with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher. As of November 16, 2018, McAfee received 643 reviews and an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 for McAfee Enterprise Endpoint Protection Platforms.

Today’s advanced attacks require more than traditional antivirus defenses, and McAfee’s Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) is centrally managed to protect, detect and correct against the full threat spectrum of today’s file and file-less attacks. McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) delivers comprehensive machine learning and behavioral protection technology, as well as operational simplicity for diverse endpoint environments including Windows, Mac and Linux systems. McAfee Active Response (MAR) provides integrated, automated and adaptable endpoint detection and response (EDR) technology, is easy to use and makes incident response as simple as a single click.

“We believe our position as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Endpoint Protection Platforms is a testament that our endpoint solutions continue to meet the rigorous demands of modern threats and empower our customers to fight against an expanding threat landscape,” said Raja Patel, vice president of corporate products, McAfee. “We take great pride in being recognized by our customers on Gartner Peers Insights, and will continue our work to evolve with our customers for where they are headed next.”

With this focus on evolution, McAfee has expanded its portfolio with a new product family, MVISION, to deliver cloud-native, management-led security solutions that protect data and stop threats from device to cloud. McAfee MVISION Endpoint enables customers to leverage native controls in Windows 10 environments, managed through McAfee’s management console, MVISION ePO, which is available in multitenant SaaS, AWS and on-prem environments. McAfee MVISION Mobile provides visibility and threat defense for iOS and Android devices to ensure they are safeguarded just like any other device. In 2019, McAfee will release MVISION Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), to combine threat intelligence from one of the largest attack surfaces, the device, with machine-learning that automates attack reconstruction to facilitate faster analyst remediation.
