McAfee has announced the release of its ePolicy Orchestrator 4.5 to help secure organisations from a vast and ever-growing threat landscape.

The company claimed that it allows organisations of all sizes to manage, from a single server, dozens of devices up to hundreds of thousands of devices. Its enhancements include improved enterprise scalability with a new multi-tiered architecture that features load balancing, failover support and multiple server awareness for improved policy management and reporting.

It has an enhanced web-based, customisable interface with streamlined navigation and reporting enhancements to provide immediate visibility into an organisation's security posture.

According to McAfee it features improved workflow and automation framework to help minimise vulnerabilities and save administrator time in completing common tasks. This framework can utilise the ePolicy Orchestrator advanced tagging capability to automatically add protection to discovered systems.

Using this, administrators can also develop security policies to automate protection based on user profiles rather than merely by system or device.

Matt Fairbanks, senior vice president of product and solution marketing at McAfee, said: “IT organisations want to consolidate and standardise on a strategic security partner to deliver the highest protection levels while driving down cost.

“With McAfee's unmatched network and systems security portfolio, powerful compliance technologies, real-time Global Threat Intelligence, and a security management platform based on ePO, McAfee is transforming the way businesses approach security.”
