Fragmented and reactive. Does this describe your security posture? Even with an increased focus on information security and risk management, companies continue to be vulnerable to security risks that expose customer data and internal assets.
Historically, enterprises have taken a very reactive and tactical approach to implement security and risk programs, deploying point-security solutions only after an incident and loss of data. Such fragmented technologies fail to provide adequate protection across heterogeneous IT infrastructures, leaving companies exposed across unsupported systems, especially as many of the critical business processes are moved to the cloud.
This solution guide addresses the importance of implementing a strategic security and risk management program focused on prevention and protection, reducing incidents and risks across the enterprise, across every device, and across the entire IT infrastructure. It outlines the basics of deploying security complete with automated assessment, strategic responses to issues or potential risks, and proactive monitoring across the entire enterprise — a security model that helps mitigate risks and incidents before they occur.
The McAfee solution has two primary components: McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, with additional integrations to extend visibility and control across the entire security and compliance management environment.
McAfee integrates data and processes to make vulnerability management more effective and efficient. Our approach combines asset discovery and management, comprehensive vulnerability scanning, flexible reporting, and remediation workflows into a single vulnerability assessment solution.
McAfee enables secure and compliant network access for employee-owned PCs and Macs, aligns network access for these devices with company security policies, provides a process for handling out-of-compliance systems, and ensures that these systems are monitored to protect the overall security posture of the enterprise.
Address the challenge of supporting unmanaged endpoints such as smartphones, tablets, and employee-owned laptops. McAfee helps enterprises implement a network access architecture that can effectively handle both managed and unmanaged clients, rogue devices, and various user privileges — enforcing endpoint policies across all devices to ensure compliance.
The McAfee EMM platform blends mobile device management with policy-managed endpoint security and compliance reporting in a seamless system, integrating smartphones and tablets into enterprise networks and security management.
McAfee interconnects components to allow you to define compliance benchmarks and audit for compliance, detect and prevent compliance drift, manage the workflow associated with audit remediation, and provide central management and reporting for the entire solution.
McAfee endpoint security solutions provide a layered defense to protect PCs, providing antimalware and antivirus defenses, encryption, access control, and safe web browsing features.
McAfee fights rootkits by using real-time memory and CPU protection, protecting against known and unknown attacks, and getting beneath the operating system.
The McAfee solution enables you to protect all information assets without up-front knowledge or review of what needs to be protected, regardless of how that information is stored, secured, or communicated.
McAfee enables enterprises to collect, analyze, and preserve security forensic information. With a solution that includes content- and context-aware SIEM, McAfee provides alerts to security events, as well analysis on how the attacked occurred, affected users, and compromised data — so you can better understand the severity of a security breach.
To enable the secure and controlled use of social media in the workplace, McAfee recommends a layered approach, including firewall and data loss prevention (DLP) built around a solid web proxy solution. With McAfee security solutions, enterprises can address bandwidth concerns around the use of social media, encourage the productive use of time among employees, scan for malware, filter HTTPS content, and stop data leakage.
While waking systems to scan and providing remote repair capabilities seem like very different issues, they are both solved through McAfee integration with Intel® vPro® Active Management Technology (Intel AMT). Leveraging the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) agent and centralized management environment, McAfee ePO Deep Command runs on desktops and laptops with the second generation Intel Core™ i5 and i7 vPro technologies.
McAfee safeguards mission-critical application servers with a security solution that protects against malware, vulnerabilities, and exploits; enforces change management processes; prevents the installation of unauthorized applications; and manages compliance.
McAfee products provide a multi-layered email security solution managed by a single console for the visibility and control needed to effectively protect against emerging email threats.
File servers hold sensitive data and require security controls that guard against data-stealing malware and unauthorized system changes. McAfee protects file servers with a solution that includes antimalware and antivirus protection, change monitoring and enforcement, dynamic whitelisting, network intrusion protection, and data loss prevention.
McAfee solutions will help you understand your web server infrastructure and protect each web server against the vulnerabilities, attacks, and threat agents that could disrupt it.
Provide effective security for laptops. McAfee protects laptops with a solution that integrates antimalware, data loss prevention, data protection, safe web browsing features, and complete visibility and control that enables IT to deploy security updates on laptops, regardless of the Internet connection.
Conquer performance issues related to implementing antivirus solutions in virtualized desktop infrastructures (VDI). McAfee offers a practical way to efficiently integrate antivirus in VDI by offloading virtual desktop antivirus operations to a centralized system and integrating VDI security with the broader enterprise security infrastructure.
McAfee works closely with a partner, TITUS, to provide resilient data governance solutions that enable government customers to meet regulatory requirements, prevent sensitive data leakage, monitor user compliance, and respond quickly to security incidents.
