McAfee Inc. today announced availability a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Web security solution aimed to protect enterprises with no on-premise requirements.

With no applications or hardware to install or deploy, McAfee SaaS Web Protection provides organizations immediate protection, leveraging the McAfee Global Threat Intelligence network which uses millions of threat sensors and more than 350 security experts around the globe to provide customers with real-time protection from malware, spam, trojans and other Internet-borne threats. McAfee Cloud Based Web  Protection

The cloud-based solution helps reduce upfront costs, as well as lower ongoing maintenance and management costs. Organizations with numerous locations or limited IT resources can quickly deploy the solution by simply redirecting Web traffic to a McAfee data center and allowing McAfee SaaS Web Protection to manage protection from start to finish.

The McAfee SaaS Web Protection solution now provides:

Comprehensive Reporting: McAfee SaaS Web Protection gives organizations the tools they need to understand today’s web traffic. IT staff can easily identify trends, investigate potential problems, and analyze security threats.

Simplified Policy Enforcement and Controls: The new service provides automatic enforcement of acceptable usage policy, reduces corporate liability, and improves employee productivity. Additionally, organizational policies enable granular controls for Web security and usage.

Early Protection: Threats are blocked in the cloud before they reach the customer network. Relying on extensive knowledge of Internet entities and the constantly changing global threat landscape, the McAfee® TrustedSource™ technology enhances Web filtering by identifying potentially malicious behavior and enabling organizations to dynamically block these threats in real-time.

Rapid Deployment and Unlimited Scalability: McAfee SaaS Web Protection can be rapidly deployed anywhere around the world, and for an unlimited amount of users without any performance degradation.

Remote Protection: McAfee SaaS Web Protection also provides the same level of Web security for remote offices and mobile users. This enables corporate security policies to be centrally managed and enforced for all users, even when they are not behind the corporate firewall.

The Web Protection Solution is built on the architecture that powered the MX Logic solution which it acquired in 2009.

“Web filtering solutions have evolved from website monitoring to serious malware defense,” said Marc Olesen, SVP and General Manager, Content and Cloud Security for McAfee. “McAfee SaaS Web Protection incorporates all of the knowledge and experience we’ve gathered through the years, as well as the unique expertise and technologies gained from our recent acquisitions.”

The McAfee SaaS Web Protection is available immediately worldwide.
