Complex malware is commonplace. It features in opportunistic, generic keyloggers secreted on websites and custom concoctions built into targeted attacks. While advanced inline systems on endpoints and in the network can detect the overwhelming majority of malware, it’s almost inevitable that some dangerous code will slip through. Then what? For some, back-up controls shut down malicious activities on the endpoint using a range of application and OS-layer tools. What if these systems are missing or fail?
Few companies have the resources to deploy specialized monitoring tools and hire experts to capture and analyze anomalous code. Typically, nothing happens — until a breach or attack upsets the apple cart. Then, expensive specialists descend to determine what happened where, find any rotten apples, and define a recovery plan.
This cycle will become more frequent as off-the-black-market-shelf tool kits make complex malware accessible to every criminal. However, you can fight back using integrated and intelligent protections that mesh defenses and monitoring operations into a system.
This solution guide explains how existing antimalware in endpoints and the network must change to better detect, block, analyze, and respond to the full range of ingenuity in advanced malware. As long as malware remains the most potent tool in the cybercriminal’s tool kit, an integrated and systematic approach is your best defense.
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.
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.
The McAfee solution has two primary components: McAfee Firewall Enterprise and McAfee Network Security Platform. The McAfee Firewall and the IPS appliance both have add-on features that can optimize your visibility into the network. McAfee SIEM and other optional products help extend visibility and analytics to more aspects of network traffic.
The McAfee approach to database security monitors database activity and changes, offers protected auditing tools, enables virtual patching to avoid database downtime, and provides compliance and regulatory templates.
McAfee protects the network perimeter with a solution that integrates firewall and network intrusion prevention. It effectively inspects inbound traffic at the network edge; leverages real-time file and network connection reputation data from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence; enforces policies; implements comprehensive antivirus, antispam, and encryption technologies; and inspects for emerging malware, zero-day attacks, botnets, denial-of-service attempts, and advanced targeted attacks.
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.
