OEM Product or Service McAfee Embedded Security McAfee Anti-Virus SDK (VirusScan) McAfee Trusted Source (McAfee SmartFilter) McAfee Network Security McAfee Data Protection
Automated Teller Machines (ATMs)
Because ATMs must sustain a secure, highly available, and PCI-compliant environment, McAfee delivers zero-day threat protection throughout the ATM lifecycle.
Because advanced systems, including navigation, are common in both consumer and commercial transportation industries, we secure these systems from malware and unauthorized modification.
Communication Devices
Communication devices are becoming computing devices, and we protect these devices just as we secure traditional computing systems.
Cloud Computing
As data center resources move out to the cloud, McAfee moves with them, delivering security to cloud service providers and their customers.
Energy/Smart Grid/SCADA
Smart grid systems face the same challenges as traditional embedded systems. McAfee ensures these systems sustain availability, security, and compliance.
Gaming Systems
Advanced gaming systems rely on embedded operating systems that are threatened by malware and unauthorized changes. We secure these systems and enforce software change policies.
Managed Security Service Providers/Telcos (MSSP/MSP)
MSPs take the security burden off the enterprise customer. McAfee helps these OEMs bolster their protections while cutting costs.
Medical Devices
Medical devices that run embedded operating systems must sustain high availability, performance, and compliance. McAfee provides transparent security and control for these devices.
Multifunction Devices (MFD) (printers, scanners, etc.)
MFD OEMs need to maintain device accountability, increase device longevity, and sustain compliance with PCI, HIPAA, and federal regulations. McAfee provides zero-day threat protection and control for these devices.
Network Equipment
Network equipment devices, such as switches and routers, are most secure when robust protection is built in from the start.
Point-of-Sale (POS) Systems
Because retailers must meet PCI compliance across POS systems running embedded operating systems, McAfee helps POS OEMs ship a secure, PCI-compliant device to retailers.
Process Control
Process control solutions are often found in front of assembly lines, and as with other fixed-function systems, availability and control are essential. McAfee prevents unwanted changes to these systems.
Secure Gateway & Messaging
Secure gateway and messaging devices provide specific security functions alongside other network equipment at the perimeter. We provide the security elements for these devices.
Storage & Removable Media (USB)
Storage servers and USB drives require protection from tampering, malware, and unauthorized access and change. We secure these devices with antivirus, encryption, and embedded security technology.
