To provide endpoint security for servers, PCs and laptops
McAfee has signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar enterprise license agreement with the state of New York to provide endpoint security for servers, PCs and laptops at agencies and counties across the state.
The agreement, which includes McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint Advanced and McAfee Total Protection for Data, will provide the state with an improved security posture and increased mobility at a total cost of ownership savings of approximately 75% over previous purchases. The agreement covers all of the state agencies and counties, comprising over 200,000 servers, PCs and laptops, said McAfee.
McAfee also said that the agreement was signed after the New York State Office of Cyber Security and Critical Infrastructure Coordination released a state-wide security policy requiring all mobile endpoints to have encryption. McAfee Total Protection for Data includes an encryption tool, enabling New York’s agencies and counties to meet this requirement, protecting sensitive data on the move.
McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint Advanced provides organizations with simplified, comprehensive threat protection. McAfee Total Protection for Data offers encryption, authentication, data loss prevention, and policy-driven security services, enabling organizations to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information. Both systems integrate with McAfee’s single-console management system, ePolicy Orchestrator, enabling intelligent security and compliance optimization.
Melodie Mayberry-Stewart, chief information officer and director of the office for technology for New York state, said: During these fiscally challenges times, cost savings must to be a focal point with every transaction. McAfee solutions have enabled the State of New York to realize unprecedented cost savings and meet our unique security suite needs of higher levels of protection across the state enterprise.
