McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention for Desktops safeguards your business against complex security threats that may otherwise be unintentionally introduced or allowed by desktops and laptops. Host Intrusion Prevention for Desktops is easy to deploy, configure, and manage.
Comprehensive security Three layers of protection (signature analysis, behavioral analysis, and dynamic stateful firewall with global reputation technology) prevent intrusions, protect assets, and defend your company against known and emerging exploits, including zero-day attacks.
Advanced vulnerability shielding Stronger protection against exploits that target new vulnerabilities means your IT staff has more time for planning, testing, and deploying patches.
Automatic updates Security content updates are delivered automatically to target specific vulnerabilities and block emerging threats (including buffer-overflow attacks) from executing.
Customized security control Easily apply different levels of protection based on location (corporate network, VPN, or public network). Host Intrusion Prevention travels with the laptop and can provide varying degrees of protection, depending on whether you are in the office, at home, or on the road.
