Organizations faced with securing critical infrastructure have a complex task. Multiple zones must be protected, including enterprise IT, SCADA, and industrial control systems (ICS), and each of these zones has unique technical challenges and regulatory mandates that must be met. Traditional “bolted on” security solutions aren’t designed to protect SCADA and ICS applications, and can lead to critical data breaches or even impact system availability.
McAfee empowers organizations to address security and regulatory mandates while maintaining critical infrastructure availability. In this solution guide, learn how our Security Connected framework helps establish a more robust security posture with integrated solutions that protect endpoint, network, and data across IT, SCADA, and ICS. Leveraging dynamic whitelisting, security information and event management (SIEM), intrusion prevention systems (IPS), and database activity monitoring, McAfee security solutions for critical infrastructure environments deliver real-time situational awareness, multizone protection, and continuous compliance — without impacting operational availability.
The McAfee solution has two primary components: McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, with additional integrations to extend visibility and control across the entire security and compliance management environment.
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.
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.
