A simple unauthorized change or software update can quickly snowball into a major incident felt company-wide. A change that reduces the availability of corporate, financial, and customer systems can then impact key functionality or even bring down an entire system. As systems are taken offline, revenues can take a hit and expenditures can rise as IT scrambles to resolve the issue.
Change control processes are often reactive and require manual responses, an ineffective approach to combating today’s threats and handling the growing number of devices in the IT infrastructure. The Security Connected approach from McAfee ensures that every desktop, server, application, network device, and database is in the scope of a change control solution, giving you critical visibility into who is using your systems and what activities are taking place.
This solution guide outlines the need for enterprises to implement change controls that align automated assessment, real-time monitoring, and continuous enforcement — a framework that enables you to quickly authorize and manage appropriate system changes, enforce change policies system-wide, prevent unwanted changes, get constant visibility into change requests, and maintain system uptime and compliance, lowering your overall risk and boosting the integrity of your entire security program.
McAfee interconnects components to allow you to define compliance benchmarks and audit for compliance, detect and prevent compliance drift, manage the workflow associated with audit remediation, and provide central management and reporting for the entire solution.
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 includes McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, McAfee Application Control, McAfee Change Control, and McAfee Policy Auditor. Each control can be implemented standalone and thus allows an easy entry with minimal dependencies.
