Extending its leadership in helping organizations prevent the loss of confidential data, McAfee, Inc. released McAfee Data Loss Prevention Host 2.0 in early September. The new version includes comprehensive device management and integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). It is a key component of the industry’s most comprehensive solution for preventing both accidental and malicious data loss.

High profile data breaches continue to make headlines, impacting corporate reputations and bottom lines. According to Privacy Clearinghouse, more than 166 million American records (personal data) have been compromised. McAfee Data Loss Prevention offers complete visibility and control by monitoring and preventing confidential data loss everywhere — at work, at home, and on the road. It stops information loss across networks, through applications, and via removable storage devices, even when data is disguised. McAfee is the first to safely enable the use of valuable employee productivity tools such as USB thumb drives by offering granular control over which devices are allowed to be used, while enforcing control over what data can be copied onto them.

Easy management through McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator enables event monitoring and incident details to prove internal and regulatory compliance measures to auditors, board members, and other stakeholders.

“Enterprises face dire consequences because they are losing confidential data without even knowing it,” said Vimal Solanki, senior director of marketing for McAfee. “McAfee DLP protects enterprises from the risks of financial loss, brand damage, competitive disadvantage, lost customers and non-compliance.”

New Standards in Data Loss Prevention

McAfee is the first large security vendor in the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) space offering the rich heritage, desktop and gateway expertise, and stability not available with startups. McAfee DLP is part of an overall Security Risk Management portfolio that customers can add without adding a new agent or console to minimize management time and costs while offering a complete security view for faster response. McAfee is the first to combine comprehensive device management with flexible controls to stop confidential data copied onto USB devices so that employees can use them safely. Existing McAfee customers can leverage strengths of industry leading security management console; ePO manages 55M+ endpoints in 30K+ enterprises.


McAfee Data Loss Prevention Host 2.0 is available now in English, German and Japanese.
