Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation

Turning threat data into actionable intelligence


Streamline costly security operations and gain greater security visibility

Continuous diagnostics and mitigation helps senior federal officials gain greater visibility into their organization’s security health with an accurate, contextual picture of risk, preventative and automated controls, and centralized management.

  • Extend capabilities in core processes such as antivirus updates, operating system, and application patching assessments, along with SCAP-enabled products to evaluate FDCC/USGCB compliance. With continuous diagnostics and monitoring, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Continuous Asset Evaluation, Situational Awareness, and Risk Scoring (CAESARS) Reference Architecture and Framework Extension (FE) expands the focus of security efforts from point compliance to dynamic resilience—as you detect, report, and respond to threats in real time.
  • Conserve government resources and reduce the chance of network disruption.

Maintain an accurate picture of security risk

Leverage an open platform and standards to create your CAESARS architecture

Maximize compatibility, agility, and ROI while minimizing integration, management, and maintenance costs. McAfee uses existing USGCB/FDCC compliance and SCAP support, and integrates security technologies listed as required by CAESARS.

Discover hardware assets on and off the network

Eliminate blind spots and unscanned assets with passive and active discovery that detect and profile every system using the network. Passive scanning monitors traffic to see which devices are alive, while active scanning finds idle devices.

Quantify risk to facilitate real-time decisions

Translate your security state into quantified risk scores that factor in current threat intelligence. Account for countermeasures that could nullify a threat or vulnerability, and use the asset value at risk to determine the right response.

Automate response to the bulk of events

Apply threat intelligence to address issues with a new .DAT or patch, and prioritize human resources for high-impact results. Allow government staff to focus on monitoring high-impact factors, fine-tuning policies and controls, investigating events, and root cause analysis.

Empower every employee with situational awareness

Aggregate custom views of real-time status, logs, and data streams from all CAESARS subsystems to facilitate immediate action. Unified systems and data reporting simplifies communication with team members, auditors, and senior managers.

Ensure continued compliance of evolving security controls

Consistent, comprehensive controls and reporting enable compliance with CAESARS and CAESARS FE and reporting against CIS, DISA STIG, NIST, USGCB/FDCC standards, as well as FISMA, FedRAMP, and CyberScope.

Manage security and risk
