McAfee Public Sector Solutions

Essential threat intelligence, visibility, and orchestration for U.S. federal, state, and local agencies, and education providers

Security solutions optimized for the public sector

McAfee is a trusted partner for federal government agencies, state and local governments, and education providers, delivering industry-leading security solutions that help public sector entities develop strong cybersecurity defenses, manage security with limited resources, and maintain and prove compliance. We team with public sector clients to ensure that they have the latest security in place to protect them from endpoint to the cloud.


It starts with threat intelligence. From a network of more than a hundred million sensors, McAfee gathers a steady stream of threat data from around the world to populate and inform our real-time McAfee Global Threat Intelligence.


You can’t protect what you don’t know about. McAfee solutions extend security visibility from your endpoints to the cloud, and oversee it with a common management platform, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO). See and manage global security policies with McAfee Policy Auditor, and get actionable threat analysis with our robust SIEM offering, McAfee Enterprise Security Manager.


Your security solutions need to work together, even if they are from multiple vendors. Through our integration fabric, OpenDXL, McAfee products can seamlessly connect with third-party products, sharing threat intelligence and driving automated responses to attacks.


The Economic Impact of Cybercrime: New Analysis from CSIS

What keeps you up at night?

Threats are always evolving, but the landscape has changed dramatically in recent years. It’s no longer about just protecting endpoints and your traditional network. Instead you must dedicate your time to stopping malware from gaining access via new entry points, fighting new types of attackers, and meeting day-to-day operational demands. In fact, CIO Magazine lists cyberattacks from rogue nation-states, a greater demand for information that validates an organization’s readiness and ability to respond to threats, and IoT breaches as some of the top cybersecurity concerns for 2018. McAfee solutions for the public sector can help address your biggest pain points.


Threat intelligence isn’t any good if it exists in a silo. McAfee security solutions are connected and optimized to share threat intelligence across your environment.

How we do it

We put it into action with the following initiatives and solutions.

Solving our industry’s fragmentation is the driving force behind our open communications fabric—OpenDXL—which allows any organization to deploy cybersecurity technologies over a common protocol. OpenDXL allows one device in a cybersecurity environment to relay threat information to all others attached to the DXL. This takes threat intelligence sharing to the next level, giving you a smart, connected fabric of devices, available from multiple companies. You gain the advantages of an integrated infrastructure while still expanding innovation—even using your own talents to develop capabilities over the same fabric.

While orchestration is a theme that runs through every one of our innovations, solutions, and products, there are some that feature it front and center. Our high-performance, powerful security information and event management offering brings event, threat, and risk data together to provide strong security intelligence, rapid incident response, seamless log management, and compliance reporting—delivering the context required for adaptive security risk management.

In 2014, McAfee, Symantec, Fortinet, and Palo Alto Networks co-founded the industry's first Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA). While past industry efforts have been limited to the exchange of common malware samples, the CTA is designed to share more actionable threat intelligence openly between contributing members. This includes information on zero-day vulnerabilities, botnet command and control (C&C) server information, mobile threats, and indicators of compromise (IOCs). By working together, alliance participants deliver greater security for individual customers and organizations.

The Advanced Programs Group (APG) from McAfee specializes in investigating targeted intrusions performed by the most advanced threat groups. APG uses the intelligence gathered from McAfee® Global Threat Intelligence (McAfee GTI) capabilities, in conjunction with the experience of intelligence professionals, to provide actionable intelligence of developing threats, trends, and vectors.
