Enhanced security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence — McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) is a comprehensive cloud-based threat intelligence service. Already integrated into McAfee security products, it works in real time, 24 hours a day, to protect customers against cyberthreats across all vectors — file, web, message, and network. McAfee GTI offers the broadest threat data, most robust data correlation, and most complete product integration in the industry. McAfee’s GTI network allows enabled products to evaluate threats on multiple vectors in real time, leading to faster identification of threats and higher capture rates. Host Intrusion Prevention for Server uses the McAfee GTI file reputation service and network connection reputation service to find suspicious files before they are identified as carrying malicious payloads, as well as domains/IP addresses that are infected or hosting malware attacks, and block those attacks.
