McAfee Email Gateway consolidates inbound threat protection, outbound encryption, advanced compliance, data loss prevention, and administration into a single, easy-to-deploy and user-friendly appliance. As a comprehensive email security solution, Email Gateway can stand alone or work in tandem with McAfee SaaS Email Protection & Continuity as an integrated hybrid solution. It eliminates ineffective piecemeal defenses, simplifies multivendor security environments, and reduces operating costs — while significantly strengthening email security.
McAfee Email Gateway Clients
Email Gateway delivers:
Total inbound protection — Inbound protection goes beyond blocking spam. Email Gateway provides powerful antispam scanning technologies to identify and block incoming spam with over 99% accuracy. It also protects your network from malware, zero-hour threats, phishing, viruses, blended threats, directory harvest, denial of service (DoS), bounceback attacks, and spam surges.
Total outbound protection to keep your data secure — Available at no extra charge are encryption (push, pull, TLS, S/MIME, PGP) and built-in data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities that utilize the same text-matching dictionaries found in McAfee Data Loss Prevention — with the ability to scan over 300 document types. These compliance and DLP capabilities are fully used from the Email Gateway administrative interface or McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). Using sophisticated content-scanning technologies, multiple encryption techniques, and granular, policy-based message handling, Email Gateway prevents outbound data loss and keeps sensitive data secure.
Simple, powerful administration from within McAfee ePO — With Email Gateway, administrators can deliver superior email protection and document it with customizable, enterprise-class reporting, exportable report logs, real-time dashboards, and alerts. Email Gateway combines performance, scalability, and stability with a flexible delivery model to ensure maximum ROI.
A virtualized solution — The Email Gateway appliance is also available as a virtual appliance, so you can reap the benefits of virtualization. With lower costs than a physical appliance, a virtual appliance also provides maximum flexibility, including the ability to consolidate solutions on a single server.
Enhanced security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) — McAfee GTI is a comprehensive cloud-based threat intelligence service. Integrated into McAfee security products, it works in real time, 24 hours a day, to protect customers against cyberthreats across all vectors — file, web, message, and network. McAfee GTI offers the broadest threat data, most robust data correlation, and most complete product integration in the industry. McAfee’s GTI network allows enabled products to evaluate threats on multiple vectors in real time, leading to faster identification of threats and higher capture rates. Email Gateway uses the message, network, and web reputation service to identify email messages carrying malicious payloads.
Security Connected integration for advanced malware detection — For the most sophisticated and targeted email attacks, integration with McAfee Advanced Threat Defense provides a closed-loop solution capable of eliminating the stealthy and zero-day malware often used to enter organizations through spear phishing. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense combines in-depth static code and dynamic analysis (sandboxing) to analyze the actual behavior of malware. A tight integration between Mcafee Email Gateway and McAfee Advanced Threat Defense enables this analysis to be conducted on suspect files attached to email, blocking those found to be malicious before they ever reach an inbox.
