Unparalleled Anti-spyware - McAfee SIG includes McAfee's award-winning anti-spyware technology. McAfee SIG filters HTTP and FTP traffic to protect your network against spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers, and backdoors. McAfee SIG uses the same highly accurate pattern files as our desktop security product, McAfee Anti-Spyware Enterprise, to block known threats before they enter your network. The optional Web filtering module (see below) provides a second layer of protection against spyware.
In Depth Anti-virus - McAfee SIG is based on the same anti-virus technology as our award-winning desktop product. The heart of McAfee anti-virus is an engine that blocks both known and unknown viruses, protecting you against zero-day attacks and new virus threats. McAfee SIG protects inbound and outbound e-mail that use SMTP and POP3 protocols, and it protects Web traffic using HTTP, FTP, and ICAP protocols.
Advanced e-mail Content Filtering - What if you could protect against inappropriate content coming into the network, as well as guard against sensitive information leaving the network? McAfee SIG's built-in e-mail content filtering can prevent both. With lexical scanning of e-mails and more than 300 types of attachments, McAfee SIG can block or modify messages that contain specific words or phrases that violate a content rule.
Anti-spam and Anti-phishing - McAfee's anti-spam module is completely integrated with McAfee SIG. The anti-spam module uses multiple highly sophisticated techniques to detect and block spam and phishing attacks: integrity analysis, heuristic detection, content filtering, blacklist and whitelist support, DNS blocklist support, and Bayesian filtering. Streaming updates ensure your protection is always up-to-date. Users can obtain daily digests of the messages that have been blocked as spam, and they also can administer their spam quarantine and manage their own blacklists and whitelists.
Web Filtering Module - McAfee's Web filtering module lets you block Web pages that are unrelated to your business in order to preserve bandwidth, reduce business risk and legal liability, and improve employee productivity. The module is completely integrated with McAfee SWG and is available via an optional license. It includes a comprehensive database containing over 6 million URLs, updated daily, and grouped into 69 URL categories and 10 user-defined categories for flexible policy enforcement options.
