In order for your business to thrive, your network and systems must stay secure. If it is your goal to maximize protection, minimize downtime, and solve security problems quickly, McAfee’s Host Intrusion Prevention system is an industry standard in server security.
Your servers contain your most valuable information assets and keep your business alive. One of the top challenges is to successfully protect these servers and applications from known and unknown attacks that threaten to disrupt your business. To accomplish this, you must aggressively deploy security technologies throughout your network. But the complexity of the exploits that target the vulnerabilities within your servers and applications continues to rise at an equally aggressive rate.
McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention with Reporting
McAfee® Host Intrusion Prevention (Host IPS) monitors and blocks unwanted activity and threats. The server version of Host IPS maintains server uptime and protects corporate assets, such as applications and databases. Host IPS protects servers from known and unknown zero-day threats by combining signature and behavioral intrusion prevention system (IPS) protection with a stateful firewall and application control. McAfee Host IPS reduces patching frequency and urgency, preserves business continuity and employee productivity, protects data confidentiality, and simplifies regulatory compliance.

Many organizations protect local and remote logins with a simple username and password that can be easily guessed or cracked. Malicious viruses, spyware, and hackers can capture these passwords to exploit and hack into servers.
