Speed of response and efficient allocation of resources are essential to mission assurance. Intelligence-driven response helps government enterprises combat today’s threats and maintain service availability as cyberattacks become more stealthy and persistent. Operationalizing these fundamental systems and processes enhances speed, visibility, and accuracy while directing resources for the most efficiency and impact.
Broad and deep visibility into the anatomy of each attack — McAfee detection and analysis solutions provide visibility across the kill chain, from endpoints to the data center. Multiple forms of inline and out-of-band traffic analysis validate suspicious events quickly. As you discover and identify malicious actions and intrusion indicators, McAfee helps you capture and leverage that knowledge to prevent or disrupt in-process events or speed detection in the future.
Rapid, prioritized responses — The McAfee decision framework integrates rich analytical insights into a centralized intelligence exchange and workflow for discovery, prevention, detection, analysis, impact assessment, and response. External threat intelligence is enhanced with local threat intelligence gathered from sensor grids throughout your network and correlated with contextual data. This system drives rapid, prioritized mitigation or remediation by systems and staff. Where possible, policies launch automated responses by McAfee preventative controls at endpoints, network gateways, and data centers to reduce the attack surface and potential impact. Precious intelligence staff can direct their time to the most egregious and insidious events.
Essential to a cyber resilience strategy — McAfee helps integrate tailored and timely incident analysis and response with enterprise IT and strategic decision frameworks. Your defense enterprises can incorporate speed, efficiency, and visibility throughout critical incident management processes and develop measurable points of success.

The most menacing type of cyberattack is invisible. Using sophisticated techniques to hide its presence, a stealth attack may operate outside of the OS or move dynamically across endpoints to conceal the attackers’ actions. The risk to enterprises is real, with high-profile attacks such as Operation High Roller impacting companies around the globe. Traditional antivirus or intrusion prevention systems are no match for this new breed of attack; instead, enterprises need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.
There are several solutions for protecting information that offer the added benefit of reducing costs and complexity.
