McAfee, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation, empowers businesses, the public sector, and home users to safely experience the benefits of the Internet. The company delivers proactive and proven security solutions and services for systems, networks, and mobile devices around the world. With its Security Connected strategy, innovative approach to hardware enhanced security, and unique Global Threat Intelligence network, McAfee is relentlessly focused on keeping its customers safe. McAfee believes that an open and integrated system best enables organizations to effectively block threats, identify compromises, and expedite remediation. It’s at the center of our commitment to enable a safe and connected world. Building on leading endpoint protection solutions, diverse technologies, and widely adopted and open centralized management platform, McAfee can help you expedite the entire threat defense life cycle. Work with McAfee to apply actionable intelligence, selective automation, and real-time collaboration.
McAfee will help you integrate a dynamic endpoint, intelligent analytics, cloud-delivered security, and centralized management into an adaptive system that protects, detects, and corrects today’s threats. Together, we can reduce the threats that get through, find them faster, and use fewer resources in the process. Threats are becoming more complex — it’s time to evolve how you fight them. Learn how an open and integrated system reduces security fragmentation, automates tasks, and multiplies your capabilities so you can more effectively block threats, identify compromises, and respond faster. Discover how McAfee are building a platform based architecture with four security systems: endpoint, cloud, hybrid data centers, and threat management. With the rising volume and complexity of threats, and the shrinking time and resources to handle them, security practitioners must evolve their approach. The job hasn’t changed; to protect vital services and information from theft, manipulation, and loss from external and internal actors.
Threat Defense Life Cycle
Challenges — in early 2015, an Intel Security survey of incident responders at 700 organizations uncovered the hurdles and opportunities facing investigators of targeted attacks. With an increase in the attack surface and the industrialization of cybercrime, we found incident response teams are overwhelmed, constantly fighting fires that exceed their capacity. Many have invested in countermeasures and tools, but the friction and fragmentation that they need to overcome is leaving them ineffective in the fight. Correct — streamline the threat defense life cycle by facilitating triage, investigation, and remediation. McAfee cloud based management reduces maintenance while making it easier to enhance protection and policies. Security and threat insights become triggers for automated action to expedite cleanup and quickly adapt current security policies. It’s a system that learns from security incidents and continually evolves, providing you better protection going forward. Detect — no single analysis or intelligence source can detect sophisticated attacks.
More data than sense — as we look at the responses, most of these detection and correction efforts combine human expertise with tools and data. All efforts can be improved through access to and better interpretation of relevant data, policy-based workflows, and appropriate and facilitated automation. Turns out that security has been a cost of doing business, treated as overhead, with few metrics and limited risk analysis. There’s an infrastructure, but not a conscientious and resilient architecture. Few security teams have had architects articulating an integrated design or an adaptive model. McAfee’s solution gathers both local and global security intelligence, integrates an array of behavioral and contextual analytics, and leverages centralized management for better insight, more effective threat identification, and faster investigation of events. Investigations take too much time — according to 47% of survey respondents, most time is spent scoping an attack, determining what was altered on a system, what this alteration did, and what other systems may have been affected.
