It utilizes both cloud and the client but someone has to test it first to see whether its offline scanning mode is enabled or not on home user products..

Thanks @EndangeredPootis
And do you know where I can find the full list and explanation of McAfee technologies ?

They provide too little information to say, but they almost certainly use the same technologies as other AV's, like BB, herustics, ML, etc.

According to my experience, McAfee home products and McAfee enterprise products (MES) sometimes detect one same sample differently.

As for behavioral blocker, I think home product has online Real Protection, but it does not have enhanced remediation and dynamic application containment that MES has. I'm not sure if home products have exploit prevention and Real Protection technology that works offline.
