McAfee Expands Comprehensive Threat Protection in Security Connected Platform
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
today announced expanded capabilities to find, freeze, and fix advanced
threats faster to win the fight against advanced and evasive targeted
attacks. Part of the McAfee (News - Alert) Security Connected approach, the McAfee
Comprehensive Threat Protection solution tightly binds and shares
threat intelligence and workflows across endpoints, network and the
cloud. It provides protection, performance, and operational savings that
are not possible from point products, which aren't designed to optimize
security and risk management as an IT function and carry the overhead of
Enhanced Countermeasures, New Analytics, Context and Orchestration
Since last year McAfee has enhanced the countermeasures available to
customers and added new analytics, context and orchestration to fully
integrate and automate the threat protection processes.
Uncovers over 800 million advanced network evasion techniques:
Next Generation Firewall detects malicious traffic that has attempted
to disguise itself by splitting into pieces that travel across a
variety of protocols through different layers of the OSI stack. Now,
the McAfee Next Generation Firewall can communicate with the Security
Connected platform to educate endpoints and other network security
products about these events.
More details about malware: McAfee Advanced Threat Defense
combines reputation, and real-time emulation defenses with in-depth
static code and dynamic, malware analysis (sandboxing) to provide the
most detailed assessment and data on malware classificatin.
Integration with McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange can share all
these details plus dynamic file and IP reputation, prevalence, and
malware to drive counter-responses and educate each security component
in the corporate environment to recognize and block emerging and
Find, freeze, and fix within milliseconds: Unlike other
sandboxing technologies, McAfee Advanced Threat Defense can directly
receive files for analysis from and send results to endpoint, network,
and management systems, leveraging the Security Connected platform to
optimize advanced malware detection and analysis and stop malware in
its tracks-with no time or effort spent on integration.
"At McAfee, we're laser focused on helping customers find, freeze and
fix threats before they become problems," said Pat Calhoun, general
manager of network security at McAfee. "Today's advanced threats require
custom defenses. The McAfee Comprehensive Threat Protection solution
provides integrations that let customers implement the defense that
works best for their business. Weaving protection throughout endpoints,
network infrastructure, and the cloud, it now counters the most evasive
and determined attacks-in milliseconds."
Continuing to expand its Comprehensive Threat Protection solution,
McAfee recently announced McAfee
Threat Intelligence Exchange which orchestrates local and global
threat intelligence information and enterprise-wide security products
into one cohesive integrated security system to eliminate the gap
between encounter and containment of advanced targeted attacks. The
ability to quickly spot and pre-empt advanced threats is now a business
differentiator as companies seek to protect their intellectual property
and assure customers that their data is safe and secure.
The McAfee Security Connected strategy integrates data and workflows for
automated response. Threat intelligence shared between the network and
endpoint helps McAfee countermeasures to immediately shut down
command-and-control communications and quarantine compromised systems.
For example, the McAfee Network Security Platform can use guidance from
the McAfee Enterprise Security Manager to block communications with
