McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange

McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange

Adaptive threat prevention

Next Steps:

Overview

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 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.

Features & Benefits

Comprehensive threat intelligence

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.

Immediate visibility into the presence of advanced targeted attacks

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.

Proactive threat protection

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.

Unmatched operational effectiveness lowers security cost of ownership

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.

System Requirements

McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange requires the following products:

  • McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 5.1
  • McAfee Agent 5.0
  • McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.8, Patch 4

    Rees Johnson - July 18, 2014

    Targeted attacks can take on many different forms and are flexible enough to adopt a variety of tactics. Think of them as a specialized unit for cyber criminals. They are utilized for very specific missions and operate with the precision of a surgical strike, rather than the carpet-bombing techniques used by other malware variants. Whether […]

  • Continuous Incident Response
    Barbara Kay - July 15, 2014

    At last week’s Gartner Risk and Security Management Summit, Anton Chuvakin mentioned that 1-3% of systems are compromised today. He called it “a low intensity fire, not a conflagration.” This seemed like a great analogy for our challenge with incident response. As a security industry—indeed, as a society—it’s much more straightforward to detect, contain, and […]
