McAfee outlines integrated security strategy for business and government

McAfee brings network and endpoint together through centralised security management

Gone are the days when a company could deploy a standalone security appliance to protect an entire network, McAfee network security general manager, Pat Calhoun says.

McAfee, now part of Intel Security, has outlined its strategy for helping businesses and government agencies expand their network protection through a combination of integrated technologies.

McAfee has announced a framework that brings network and endpoint together through centralised management which that integrates with both global and local threat intelligence to deliver visibility across all threat vectors.

“Gone are the days when you could deploy a new standalone security appliance to protect your entire network,” Calhoun said.

“The advanced attacks that we’re seeing today happen far too quickly and can easily overwhelm security products that are operating solo.”

The new solutions have built-in intelligence, and advanced management offered with an extensible architecture for partners.

They also integrate with endpoint security to share real-time information, threat intelligence, and workflows to strengthen an organisation’s defenses.

The network security framework provides maximum availability, security, integrity, flexibility, and manageability with minimum overhead and risk, according to a company statement.

Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) Aachen University, chief business development officer, Andreas Schreiber, said there were only a few systems on the market capable of meeting the university's criteria.

“McAfee Next Generation Firewall guarantees both optimal protection and high availability—and with a price performance ratio suitable for a public institution," he said.

"With McAfee Next Generation Firewall, RWTH is well equipped for the future,” he said.

McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange allows organisations to orchestrate security controls to identify patterns, immunise assets against newly-identified malware, and prevent data exfiltration in real-time.

Calhoun said, just as a team is more powerful than an individual, a beneficial multiplier effect occurs when network security solutions are connected to each other, to endpoints and other intelligence sources.

"The collective security analysis from these solutions is greater than that of a single solution.”

Integrated network security solutions include McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange, McAfee Advanced Threat Defense, McAfee Network Intrusion Prevention, and McAfee Next Generation Firewall.
