Intel Security


Transform your network protection

McAfee Network Security Platform is a next-generation intrusion prevention system (IPS) that redefines how organizations block advanced threats. Unlike traditional IPS solutions, it extends beyond signature matching with layered signature-less technologies that defend against never before seen threats. Intelligent workflows save time by isolating threat patterns, enabling security administrators to provide fast and accurate responses to network threats and breaches.

Built around a cutting-edge hardware platform that scales to speeds over 320 Gbps, and a Security Connected approach that leverages data from multiple products, McAfee Network Security Platform provides the intrusion protection and visibility demanding organizations need.

Empower your security by rethinking IPS

Block more intrusions than ever before

Stop new and unknown attacks with signature-based and signature-less inspection. Signature-less intrusion detection technology allows the IPS to identify malicious network traffic and stops never-before-seen attacks for which no signatures exist.

Unify your cloud and physical security

Support for VMware NSX and OpenStack allows organizations to unify security posture across physical and virtual networks. Support for network virtualization in VMware NSX allows administrators to scale security with virtual workloads in private clouds as they are created and moved.

Adapt to threats in near real-time

Support for McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange delivers real-time threat awareness across both physical and virtual networks. Integration with McAfee Advanced Threat Defense and McAfee MOVE AntiVirus empowers organization to automate advanced security to the software-defined data center.

Maximize security and performance

Our dedicated, purpose-built hardware platform is based on cutting-edge Intel technology and provides the freedom to customize security without risking throughput loss.

Plug the gaps between your security products

McAfee Network Security Platform is the only IPS to deliver a threat defense architecture that integrates across multiple products. Share security data across your organization, enabling connected devices to learn and respond to threats in real time.

Seamless integration with McAfee Network Threat Behavior Analysis

Enhance threat correlation and context

Collect flow data from switches and routers. McAfee Network Threat Behavior Analysis correlates unusual network behavior caused by intrusions. It is also compatible with switches and routers from Cisco, Juniper Networks, Extreme Networks, and others.

Get network-wide visibility and insight

Protect far beyond the scope of your IPS appliances and defend against attacks from almost anywhere in your network—without extensive footprint expansion.

Extend botnet intrusion detection and network analysis

Augment existing IPS defense with advanced correlation and behavior-based algorithms. Find stealthy botnets, worms, and reconnaissance attacks hiding across the network landscape.
