Continuous Incident Response

Minimize the risk and impact of data breaches


Detect and disrupt attacks earlier

McAfee experts and products help optimize incident response, so you can detect attacks early, strengthen defenses over time, block or disrupt attacks before compromise or data exfiltration, and minimize the time, effort, and cost of containment and cleanup.

Our approach to incident response unifies prevention, detection, and response. Inject more meaningful intelligence, correlate and contextualize data into actionable indicators of attack (IoAs), and automate analysis and workflows so investigators can scope, contain, and remediate high-priority events. With our adaptive threat prevention model, your controls continuously get smarter, giving you a sustainable advantage in the fight against advanced and targeted attacks.

Empower defenses to get stronger over time

Use the attack chain to close detection gaps

Detect and deny attackers at every step. Deploy reconnaissance signatures, reputation, location, behavioral tools, and gateway controls. Harden endpoints to minimize exploitable surfaces, shut down command and control traffic, and block exfiltration at the gateway.

Collect and compile IoAs to reveal suspicious events

Turn unknown attributes, indicators of compromise (IoCs), and contextual information, including organizational intelligence and risk, into a dynamic, situational picture that guides response.

Baseline your world to detect change

Accumulate events to set a baseline, then monitor and get alerts on deviations. Use correlation rules for greater sophistication and sensitivity to targeted attacks.

Eliminate false positives and noise

Integrate dynamic context and an array of threat and organizational intelligence into real-time analytics so responders immediately see and act on the high-priority events and IoAs.

Contain, mitigate, and remediate instantly, with confidence

Use proven workflows, thresholds, tags, and scripts to investigate with a click of the mouse, or launch policy updates, re-imaging, and quarantines automatically through out-of-the-box integrations and scriptable interfaces.
