Network security strategy from McAfee
McAfee outlined details of its network security strategy which integrates McAfee’s complete network security suite, including network firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, Web and e-mail gateway security and network data loss prevention, with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), McAfee’s centralized security management console.
According to IDC, the worldwide market for Network, Web and Messaging security was valued at a combined value of approximately $12 billion USD in 2008 and is forecasted to grow to $17.6 billion USD in 2012. This represents a 10.1 percent compound annual growth rate over the five year period.
McAfee is changing the game in blended Web 2.0 protection. Web 2.0 threats require comprehensive and cost effective security solutions. McAfee is the only vendor in the market that can deliver world class Web, mail and network DLP solutions at a disruptive price. The new McAfee Total Protection for Internet Gateways, also integrated with the ePO management, allows customers to make one purchase to acquire Web, mail and basic DLP protection on McAfee appliances, providing Web 2.0 threat protection with costs savings of 50 percent or more.
With 350 threat researchers, and tens of millions of data collection sensors, McAfee’s global footprint is substantial. The complete McAfee Network Security product line leverages McAfee’s large footprint and threat intelligence capabilities, providing customers with a view of the evolving threat landscape.
