Advanced application discovery and control — McAfee Web Protection provides web application discovery and management tools that enable system administrators to identify and manage access to rogue or unknown applications — also known as shadow IT — to reduce or eliminate the threat of potentially insecure applications. Granular controls for more than 1,000 popular cloud applications and web sites enable consistent enforcement of an enterprise’s acceptable usage policy.

Web identity management — McAfee Web Protection includes single sign-on (SSO) connectors for more than 500 popular SaaS applications, which improves end-user convenience, enhances security, and reduces expensive password-related help desk calls.
