McAfee, Inc. (NYSE:MFE) today announced that it has original equipment manufacturer (OEM) relationships to secure devices from the world’s leading manufacturers in multiple markets. McAfee provides security to device OEM partners and customers such as NCR (automated teller machines), NEC Infrontia (point-of-sale), Sharp (multifunction printers and point-of-sale), Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (energy substation servers), Meridian (kiosks), Clearwave (medical kiosks), PFU (graphic order terminals), and Sysmex Corporation (Medical Device).
There are expected to be 50 billion IP connected devices in 2020, up from 1 billion today. These devices can include automated teller machines (ATM), kiosks, point-of-sale (POS) systems, medical modalities and kiosks, mobile phones, multifunction printers (MFP), smart grid systems and thin client computers. With the proliferation of these devices comes the need to secure and manage them—whether it’s the value of the device itself, protection from theft and data loss, or meeting compliance requirements set forth by the device owner or regulatory body.
“We understand that unlike a PC, each IP connected device can be a unique system with very specific security, control and performance requirements,” said Thomas Moore, vice president, Worldwide Embedded Sales for McAfee. “By deploying McAfee Embedded Security as a foundation on the device, we are giving our OEM partners’ customers increased security and control over their devices. This can translate into increased value for manufacturers, while also providing customers with built-in security from the manufacturer in a compliance-ready device.”McAfee® Embedded Security software is specifically designed for OEMs to securely build, deploy and control IP connected devices. The small footprint, low-overhead software combines industry-leading application control and change control technology to ensure that only trusted applications run on devices as they flow through the channel or dealer network, and after they are deployed at an enterprise or remote location. The solution enforces software policies to prevent unauthorized changes and can alert on unwanted change attempts. This powerful combination of features protects devices from zero-day attacks, reduces in-field breakage, eliminates patching cycles, and keeps devices compliant with security standards. The McAfee OEM Alliance program puts McAfee expertise and industry-leading McAfee protection into a broad spectrum of existing and emerging products for endpoints, servers, data, and the network. This coverage includes embedded devices spread across a wide range of industries, including retail, healthcare, energy and financial services.
