McAfee Advanced Threat Defense detects today’s stealthy, zero-day malware with an innovative, layered approach. It combines low-touch antivirus signatures, reputation, and real-time emulation defenses with in-depth static code and dynamic, malware analysis (sandboxing) to analyze the actual behavior of malware. Combined, this represents the strongest advanced anti-malware technology in the market, and effectively balances the need for both security and performance.
With the addition of Advanced Threat Defense to the McAfee security portfolio, McAfee addresses the three key requirements to solve today’s advanced malware problem: find, freeze, and fix. Advanced Threat Defense finds advanced malware and integrates with McAfee network security solutions to freeze the threat, while McAfee Real Time initiates a fix or remediation actions.
Reduce the chances of missed malware or false positives. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense uses advanced static code and dynamic analysis (sandboxing) to provide the most detailed assessment and data on malware classification. Stealthy malware and zero-day 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 protection and resolution — a more comprehensive, efficient approach 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 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.

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is a core component of the McAfee network security portfolio and the Security Connected framework. Advanced Threat Defense can operate as a standalone network security appliance or in conjunction with McAfee intrusion prevention systems and advanced web protection solutions — all managed through a centralized console.
McAfee Network Security Platform
McAfee Network Security Platform is a uniquely intelligent security solution that discovers and blocks sophisticated threats in the network. Using advanced threat detection techniques, it defends against stealthy attacks with extreme accuracy at speeds of up to 80 Gbps, while providing rich contextual data about users, devices, and applications for fast, accurate responses to network-borne attacks.
McAfee Web Gateway
McAfee Web Gateway, deployed on-premises with appliances or in a virtual environment, offers powerful, proactive protection against zero-day threats, spyware, and targeted attacks. Web Gateway combines this advanced security with flexible, granular control, enabling your business to take maximum advantage of the web without compromise.
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) is a key component of the McAfee Security Management Platform, and the only enterprise-class software, to provide unified management of endpoint, network, and data security. With end-to-end visibility and powerful automations that slash incident response times, McAfee ePO software dramatically strengthens protection and drives down the cost and complexity of managing risk and security.
McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange

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.
The most menacing type of cyberattack is invisible. Using sophisticated techniques to hide its presence, stealthy malware 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 stealthy malware; instead, enterprises need layered security controls that work together to detect the presence and actions of stealthy malware and attackers.
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.
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.
Your organization is asking for an advanced malware detection and response strategy that’s sophisticated and adaptive against hacker attacks. Several design trends in advanced malware security affect the performance, efficacy, cost, and management complexity of an overall solution. What’s your next step?
Recently, a group of researchers at the University of Liverpool successfully tested a new virus with a terrifying potential. It doesn’t spread by the usual means, but this new infection has all the markings of a communally spread illness. The virus, dubbed “Chameleon,” infects Wi-Fi networks in densely populated areas and spreads “as efficiently as […]
