Network-wide threat visibility and assessment for enterprises

Next Steps:


Get cost-effective, network-wide visibility with McAfee Network Threat Behavior Analysis. Network Threat Behavior Analysis monitors and reports unusual network behavior by analyzing traffic from switches and routers from vendors such as Cisco, Juniper Networks, and Extreme Networks. It comes fully equipped with quad-core processors, a RAID array, distinct flow capacity, gigabit Ethernet connectivity, and offline storage area network connectivity.

Network Threat Behavior Analysis collects and analyzes traffic from the entire network — host and applications — to detect worms, botnets, zero-day threats, spam, and reconnaissance attacks. It reports any unusual behavior to help you maintain a comprehensive and efficient network security infrastructure.

Network Threat Behavior Analysis seamlessly integrates with the McAfee Network Security Platform intrusion prevention system to build a comprehensive and robust security infrastructure.

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. Network Threat Behavior Analysis uses the McAfee GTI network connection reputation service to identify domains and IP addresses that are infected or hosting malware attacks, and block those attacks.
