Overview of Threat Prevention

McAfee® Endpoint Security Threat Prevention prevents threats from accessing systems, scans files automatically when they are accessed, and runs targeted scans for malware on client systems.

Endpoint Security Threat Prevention detects threats based on security content files. Security content updates are delivered automatically to target specific vulnerabilities and block emerging threats from executing.

Threat Prevention protects your environment from the following:

  • Viruses, worms, and trojan horses
  • Access point violations
  • Buffer overflow exploits
  • Illegal API use
  • Network intrusions
  • Potentially unwanted code and programs
  • Vulnerability focused detection
  • Zero-day exploit detection
You use McAfee ePO to deploy and manage Threat Prevention on client systems.
