Once installed, Threat Prevention immediately begins protecting your system from threats.

This software offers easy to use, scalable protection, and fast performance to protect your environment from the following:

  • Viruses, worms, and trojan horses
  • Access point violations
  • Buffer overflow exploits
  • Potentially unwanted code and programs

Security content updates are delivered automatically to target specific vulnerabilities and block emerging threats from executing.

Threat Prevention detects threats based on security content files, then acts, based on settings that you configured.

You can configure the software as a standalone product on the client system. Or, you can use McAfee ePO software to manage and enforce policies, then use queries and dashboards to track activity and detections.

Note: For information about McAfee ePO software, see the product documentation.
