McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange

Transform security infrastructure into a collaborative system

Shared threat intelligence across multiple security solutions

McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange optimizes threat detection and response by closing the gap from malware encounter to containment from days, weeks, and months down to milliseconds.

Secure your system in real time

This collaborative system operationalizes threat intelligence data in real time, delivering protection to all points in your enterprise as new threats emerge.

Combine threat information sources

Leveraging the Data Exchange Layer (DXL), instantly share threat data to all your connected security solutions, including third-party solutions.

Get adaptive detection

McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange provides adaptive threat detection on unknown files, resulting in faster time to protection and lower costs.

Supercharge endpoint protection

Broader, collective threat intelligence makes accurate file execution decisions and customizes policies based on your risk tolerance level.

Uniting security components to act as one

Gain immediate visibility

Integrated intelligence from multiple sources combined with contextual data from the encounter enable better decision-making to handle never-before-seen and potentially malicious files.

Operationalize threat intelligence in real time

Combine global imported threat information from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence and third parties with locally collected intelligence from your security solutions and share across your network in real time.

Create a collaborative threat intelligence ecosystem
