The TCS Data Center Security Framework, which integrates key McAfee technologies, provides four levels of security for workloads in private clouds, public clouds, and hosted data centers:

  • Data center security: Protects operating systems, middleware, and applications against targeted and zero-day attacks. Leveraging McAfee technologies, TCS offers malware protection, intrusion protection, change control, storage scanning, hypervisor security, advanced threat detection — all centrally managed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator software across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.
  • Network-level protection: Provides adaptive threat prevention for physical and virtual networks and a secure web experience for users. As workloads move across the data center and cloud, this solution detects and defends against breaches with network, content security, and signature-based and advanced signatureless techniques. Capabilities include distributed denial-of-security protection, advanced firewall, network intrusion prevention, web security, secure remote access, and advanced threat detection.
  • Data protection: Keeps data secure from both malicious insider and outsider threats wherever it resides—on file shares, databases, or mobile devices. TCS and McAfee collaborate to deliver a broad range of defenses for vital corporate data: managed encryption for drives, files and folders, and removable media; data loss prevention; firewall; and activity monitoring, virtual patching, and vulnerability management for databases. Data protection services can be easily extended to virtual environments and the cloud through fine-grained, risk-based policies.
  • SOC: Leverages McAfee’s high-performance SIEM solutions to deliver single-console, real-time visibility, and incident management for advanced, targeted threats, along with post-incident analysis and forensics. The solution increases situational awareness, improves incident detection, and enables advanced analytics across the enterprise. Big security data collected from internal and external sources is correlated and put to work to help enterprises detect, protect, and correct more swiftly. Incident response actions are enabled automatically, both on the network and on endpoints.

McAfee solutions combined with TCS managed security services protect more than 1.3 million endpoints in 100 global organizations across multiple industries—banking and finance, energy, transportation, manufacturing, retail, and healthcare.
