McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange delivers a cohesive framework where security products collectively pinpoint threats and act as a unified threat defense system providing security resilience and immunity to infections. Threat Intelligence Exchange significantly optimizes threat prevention by narrowing the gap from encounter to containment from days, weeks, and months down to milliseconds.
Apply the power of knowledge — Threat Intelligence Exchange makes it possible for administrators to easily tailor comprehensive threat intelligence from multiple intelligence data sources. This customization empowers administrators to assemble, override, and tune the intelligence source information so that they can modify protection for their environment and organization.
Orchestrate in real time — Threat Intelligence Exchange is the first solution to use the McAfee data exchange layer, a bidirectional communications fabric enabling security intelligence, and adaptive security through product integration simplicity and context sharing. The data exchange layer (DXL) supports the automatic configuration of products, reducing errors and eliminating effort to lower implementation and operational costs of integration.
Supercharge existing endpoint protection — Threat Intelligence Exchange provides breakthrough endpoint protection, using McAfee VirusScan Enterprise to make accurate file execution decisions. Endpoints will also be protected based on malware detected by network gateways, while network gateways block access based on endpoint convictions.
McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange makes it possible for administrators to easily tailor comprehensive threat intelligence from global data sources, such as McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) and third-party feeds, with local threat intelligence sourced from real-time and historical event data coming from endpoints, gateways, and other security components.
The McAfee data exchange layer enables security components to dynamically join the McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange. Shared insights bring deeper awareness of the threats targeting an organization. Attacks are discovered through the endpoints, gateways, and other security components united in providing real-time surveillance.
Threat details collected from malware encounters at endpoints and network gateways can propagate through the data exchange layer in milliseconds, educating all security components to proactively immunize against newly detected threats.
While increasing security resiliency, security cost of ownership is lowered by extending existing McAfee security detection, prevention, and analytic technology investments to proactively and efficiently protect your organization as soon as a threat is revealed.
McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange consists of the following components:
Additional requirements for McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange include:
McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange integrates, automates, and simplifies to decisively reduce TCO and optimize enterprise security. It eliminates complexity, provides instantaneous speed, and illuminated knowledge that can lower operating costs while streamlining protection and response ― all while freeing valuable security team resources.

This paper explores the use of analytics and intelligence today and exposes the impediments to successful implementation. Organizations that are deploying analytics and intelligence properly are experiencing faster response and detection times, as well as greater visibility. However, many are confused about how to integrate and automate their intelligence collection processes.
McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange and McAfee Advanced Threat Defense work together to provide enterprises with automated, adaptive threats 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.
Attackers prey upon the institution of trust in many ways, with exploiting unsuspecting victims the primary pursuit. Learn how McAfee security technology can help protect against attacks seeking to abuse the trust your company has in its day-to-day operations.
There’s no doubt that organizations face significant challenges protecting their intellectual property and critical assets from the emerging threats that target their environments. This solutions brief highlights how McAfee® Enterprise Security Manager and McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange work together to provide organizations with exactly what they need to fight today’s advanced threats.

How do we get more visibility into attacks across our environments, improve our response, and reduce response time? The solution is automating functions that should be automated and connecting the dots between detection systems and response. Connecting these dots and applying intelligence provides responders rich context into the observed behaviors for taking action. Integrating these processes improves accuracy, while reducing time, manpower, and costs involved in detecting and managing events. This white paper explores how to achieve this.
