To meet PCI DSS requirements, enterprises typically deploy a series of point solutions that rely on manual processes and controls — an approach that is both costly and unsustainable in the face of growing IT infrastructures with new critical systems.
While staying in compliance with PCI DSS regulations is a business requirement that necessitates an investment, developing an effective program can yield benefits that extend across the enterprise, including cost savings in the form of fewer remediations, operational efficiencies gained from unifying once fragmented processes, and audit controls that extend to a wide range of other regulatory mandates.
The Security Connected framework from McAfee helps enterprises take a formal, strategic approach to compliance based on a proactive ability to automatically assess compliance status, proactively respond to any issues or potential violations, and continuously monitor controls across the enterprise. This solution guide examines how companies can automate key assessment, monitoring, and reporting controls; ensure complete coverage across any device that is in the scope of compliance; deepen management insight to get detailed analysis into the priority, impact, risk, and associated cost of a potential violation; and address potential problems before they cause a negative impact.
McAfee integrates data and processes to make vulnerability management more effective and efficient. Our approach combines asset discovery and management, comprehensive vulnerability scanning, flexible reporting, and remediation workflows into a single vulnerability assessment solution.
McAfee enables secure and compliant network access for employee-owned PCs and Macs, aligns network access for these devices with company security policies, provides a process for handling out-of-compliance systems, and ensures that these systems are monitored to protect the overall security posture of the enterprise.
Address the challenge of supporting unmanaged endpoints such as smartphones, tablets, and employee-owned laptops. McAfee helps enterprises implement a network access architecture that can effectively handle both managed and unmanaged clients, rogue devices, and various user privileges — enforcing endpoint policies across all devices to ensure compliance.
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 endpoint security solutions provide a layered defense to protect PCs, providing antimalware and antivirus defenses, encryption, access control, and safe web browsing features.
Deployment of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager and Enterprise Log Manager addresses the need for secure log collection, transport, handling, and storage, permitting your organization to prove non-repudiation and chain of custody of log records. Adding in McAfee Integrity Control ensures that the native log files being generated are a true and accurate record, preventing malicious users from interfering with the log generation process.
The McAfee approach to database security monitors database activity and changes, offers protected auditing tools, enables virtual patching to avoid database downtime, and provides compliance and regulatory templates.
To block outsiders attempting to steal your valuables, McAfee offers robust antispam and antimalware, with real-time threat assessments by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, minimizing the chance that your users will receive or click on phishing emails or malicious attachments that could open your infrastructure to a targeted attack.
Deploying McAfee Embedded Control (or McAfee Integrity Control with McAfee ePO) provides a way to ensure the software running on your POS devices is software that you approve and trust. When you are ready to update these systems and expand their features, you have a controlled, predictable production environment.
Provide effective security for laptops. McAfee protects laptops with a solution that integrates antimalware, data loss prevention, data protection, safe web browsing features, and complete visibility and control that enables IT to deploy security updates on laptops, regardless of the Internet connection.
McAfee helps organizations understand and monitor how employees are using USB sticks and other portable storage devices. Our solutions to secure removable media include antivirus and antimalware protection, data loss prevention, data encryption, and controls that help implement effective policies to protect critical information.
