Today, targeted attacks are designed to defeat security systems through a variety of approaches that either confuse defenses or avoid them completely.
As a part of the McAfee Advanced Threat Defense solution, McAfee has transformed the act of detection by connecting advanced malware analysis capabilities with defenses — from the network edge through the endpoint — and sharing threat intelligence with the entire IT environment. By sharing threat intelligence among management, network, and endpoint systems, McAfee immediately shuts down command and control communications, quarantines compromised systems, blocks additional instances of the same or similar threats, assesses where damage may have occurred, and takes action.
McAfee Advanced Threat Defense enables organizations to not only detect today’s stealthy attacks but also convert information into action and ultimately, protection.
Address the three key requirements needed to solve today’s advanced threat prevention objective: find, freeze, and fix. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense finds advanced malware and integrates with McAfee security solutions to freeze the threat, identify vulnerable machines, and initiate fix or remediation actions.
Reduce the chances of missed malware or false positives. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense uses sophisticated static code and dynamic analysis (sandboxing) to provide the most detailed assessment and data on malware classification. Stealthy malware and zero-day persistent threats are packed or obfuscated to evade detection. Advanced Threat Defense employs strong unpacking to break through evasive techniques, enabling thorough analysis and accurate classification. With broad operating system support, threats are analyzed under the same conditions as the actual host profile, so you catch more malware with fewer false alerts.
Quickly and seamlessly move from advanced malware analysis and conviction to advanced threat protection and resolution — a more comprehensive, efficient solution to the malware problem. Down selection — first using a mix of signatures, reputation, and real-time emulation — helps quickly identify a broad range of malware, producing fast detection results and reducing the number of files requiring more thorough sandbox analysis.
Centralized deployment enables multiple McAfee network devices to share the same malware analysis appliance, reducing the number of required advanced threat protection appliances, simplifying administration, and cost-effectively scaling security across your network. Advanced Threat Defense can leverage your existing McAfee security solutions, reducing the need for network rearchitecture and minimizing operational costs.
McAfee offers all essential components to find advanced malware, freeze the threat, and initiate a fix. Offering an end-to-end solution that integrates advanced threat analysis, network products, and endpoint solutions, McAfee provides organization-wide visibility and context for threats, while reducing response time and simplifying remediation.
McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is a self-contained device. There are no minimum software or hardware system requirements.

For a complete end-to-end solution, add McAfee Real Time to the mix to quickly identify and fix systems impacted by advanced malware.
Social networks, cloud applications, and content-sharing sites have become essential business tools and IT organizations are struggling to make them safely accessible from inside and outside the corporate environment. Read this Solution Brief and see how McAfee Threat Defense for McAfee Web Gateway helps overcome the obstacles.
Many of today’s unknown, zero-day threats evade traditional signature-based defenses. The addition of third-party sandbox appliances can help, but they have several limitations: high cost of deployment, reliance on a generic virtualized environments, and limited analysis techniques, making the sandbox vulnerable to crafty malware designed to bypass analysis. McAfee Network Security Platform IPS and McAfee Advanced Threat Defense work together to find sophisticated threats, freeze them so they cannot infiltrate, and fix the damage done.
Next-generation firewalls certainly offer expanded network security for branch offices and remote locations, but they can’t find and block stealthy, advanced malware. Through the Security Connected approach from McAfee, Advanced Threat Defense and McAfee Next Generation Firewall work hand-in-hand to find and freeze today’s evasive and targeted cyberattacks.
McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange and McAfee Advanced Threat Defense work together to provide enterprises with automated, adaptive threat response, which reduces time-to-containment of malicious files. The moment a file is convicted, the entire security infrastructure is informed and updated immediately, providing greatly enhanced visibility and control, from endpoint to network.
This solution brief explains how the McAfee Security Connected approach provides advanced threat protection for the financial services industry and prevents targeted attacks.
IT organizations are focused on shifting budgets from capital expenditures (CAPEX) to operational expenditures (OPEX) in an environment where in-house investments can easily get outpaced by an increasingly sophisticated cybercrime ecosystem. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense can help you to differentiate your services and protect customers against zero-day attacks by offering the industry’s most comprehensive threat protection.
Determined cyberattackers are striking US federal agencies with malware that is both more malicious and smarter than ever before. This malware is targeted, stealthy, evasive, and adaptive—enabling these characteristics in advanced persistent threats. Sure, known threats are still with us, but lurking in their midst are complex zero-day attacks that elude traditional defenses such as signatures. We are faced with designer rootkits and Trojans that can hide and move around US government networks, go unnoticed for long periods of time as they do their dirty work, infiltrating those networks and systems to steal vital government and citizen data assets. It’s a big and continually evolving problem that must be foremost in the minds of those entrusted to secure our government’s most sensitive and vital information and communication assets.
Each month brings new media coverage of a targeted attack against a business, government, or critical infrastructure operator previously considered “invulnerable.” As more organizations encounter advance malware issues - the cost, disruption, and public humiliation of data breaches and targeted attacks become an executive-level discussion. Comprehensive threat protection requires coordination of anti-malware technologies deployed with sensitivity to performance and risk.
Smart and malicious advanced malware is targeted stealthy, evasive, and adaptive. Sandboxing and other stand-alone products can't do the job on their own. This editorial brief explains why you need an arsenal of layered, integrated defenses to protect against these sophisticated threats.
