McAfee and Tanium Team Up to Deliver Enhanced Real Time Technology with Instant, Actionable Visibility
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
RSA (News - Alert) CONFERENCE - McAfee today
announced a technology partnership with Tanium, Inc. to provide enhanced
McAfee (News - Alert) Real Time technology. McAfee Real Time Command enriches security
and systems management with instant visibility into system data and
immediate intervention ability. This product empowers administrators to
manage incident responses, outbreaks, current patching levels, security
policies, and software compliance proactively. Enterprises today need
up-to-the-second information to identify and resolve security issues
within minutes versus days - the McAfee/Tanium partnership is the only
product that fulfills that need at enterprise scale.
Other systems management tools are unable to provide the time-sensitive
data enterprises need in order to efficiently prevent and respond to
threats and outages. According to the 2013 Verizon (News - Alert) Data Breach Report,
69 percent of breaches went from initial compromise to data exfiltration
within hours. Conversely, over a third of breaches took weeks to months
resolve.1 To minimize the damage of attacks and protect the
business, it is essential that security analysts are able to quickly
identify attacks, determine the root cause and remediate the threat.
McAfee Real Time Command delivers an extensible enterprise platform for
deep insight into the critical endpoint data to identify threats,
including information about running processes, hashes of files,
established network connections, user activity, configuration
information, and more as well as the ability to instantly take action in
"Time is everything when it comes to stopping threats," said Orion
Hindawi, chief technology officer at Tanium. "By the time the problem is
discovered, the damage has been done, and threats have spread throughout
the environment. Together with McAfee, we're helping businesses rapidly
expose and stop these threats before they infiltrate the environment.
We're helping them pivot from being the hunted to being the hunter."
