Riches, ruins, and regulations. Protect your company from cybercrime.


Is this a familiar story? Isolated products create coverage gaps, impair visibility, sap budget, and leave incident responders dealing with targeted attacks scrambling and reacting. Employees become exhausted as attacks keep getting more subtle, complex, and hard to detect until after damage is done. And your board is demanding better information and confidence that business data, reputation, and systems are secure.

There’s a better way to secure your business.

Use the open Security Connected platform from McAfee as a unified, adaptive framework for encouraging McAfee and third-party products and services to learn from each other, share threat intelligence and context in real time, and act as a team to keep data and networks safe. It’s a sustainable way for your organization to reduce risk, incident volume and response time, and lower overhead and operational staff costs. While Security Connected is built with innovative technologies like a real-time messaging bus and collective threat intelligence, its biggest value is the daily optimized processes that empower your cybersecurity staff while helping your security posture.


Trending Topics

  • The Healthcare Internet of Things: According to an Atlantic Council report sponsored by Intel Security, "The rewards of networked healthcare come with four main overlapping areas of concern, including accidental failures that erode trust. Should any high-profile failures take place, societies could easily turn their backs on networked medical devices, delaying their deployment for years or decades. Protecting patient privacy and sensitive health data is a second immediate concern, as malicious online hackers consider healthcare information especially valuable."
  • Security Connected for Healthcare Providers: Under pressure from regulators and the public, healthcare IT teams want to react faster to detect and mitigate risks and know where to implement next-generation controls to ease the security and compliance burden. Security Connected can help healthcare organizations discover the visibility and efficiency of broader information security controls united by event correlation, contextual analytics, and compliance audit and enforcement.
