McAfee Expands Comprehensive Threat Protection in Security Connected Platform

Integrates Detection of Evasion Techniques and Faster Remediation of Advanced Threats

RSA CONFERENCE, SAN FRANCISCOFeb. 24, 2014McAfee today announced expanded capabilities to find, freeze, and fix advanced threats faster to win the fight against advanced and evasive targeted attacks.  Part of the McAfee Security Connected approach, the McAfee Comprehensive Threat Protection solution tightly binds and shares threat intelligence and workflows across endpoints, network, and the cloud. It provides protection, performance, and operational savings that are not possible from point products, which aren’t designed to optimize security and risk management as an IT function and carry the overhead of manual integrations.

Enhanced Countermeasures, New Analytics, Context and Orchestration
Since last year McAfee has enhanced the countermeasures available to customers and added new analytics, context, and orchestration to fully integrate and automate the threat protection processes.

“At McAfee, we’re laser focused on helping customers find, freeze, and fix threats before they become problems,” said Pat Calhoun, general manager of network security at McAfee.  “Today’s advanced threats require custom defenses. The McAfee Comprehensive Threat Protection solution provides integrations that let customers implement the defense that works best for their business. Weaving protection throughout endpoints, network infrastructure, and the cloud, it now counters the most evasive and determined attacks—in milliseconds.”

Continuing to expand its Comprehensive Threat Protection solution, McAfee recently announced McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange which orchestrates local and global threat intelligence information and enterprise-wide security products into one cohesive integrated security system to eliminate the gap between encounter and containment of advanced targeted attacks. The ability to quickly spot and pre-empt advanced threats is now a business differentiator as companies seek to protect their intellectual property and assure customers that their data is safe and secure.

The McAfee Security Connected strategy integrates data and workflows for automated response. Threat intelligence shared between the network and endpoint helps McAfee countermeasures to immediately shut down command-and-control communications and quarantine compromised systems. For example, the McAfee Network Security Platform can use guidance from the McAfee Enterprise Security Manager to block communications with infected hosts.
