The McAfee Full Spectrum Network Defense solution delivers day-zero malware detection, network threat behavior analysis, and application-level security. The solution includes Network IPS, User Behavior Analysis, Network Threat Behavior Analysis, Network Access Control, and McAfee Firewall Enterprise.
Full Spectrum Network Defense identifies traffic, users, content and applications, and defends against any threats that may exist across the network. The solution is powered by McAfee NetPrism technology, McAfee’s patented protocol analysis approach to network threat protection, and features enhanced interlock between network security, endpoint security, and global threat intelligence, to deliver the world’s most advanced threat protection. New features being announced in the Full Spectrum Network Defense Solution include the following benefits:
Real-time malware protection – McAfee is the first and only vendor to offer day-zero malware protection, enabled by McAfee Artemis technology, which is tightly integrated with IPS. Supported by threat sensors distributed around the globe and McAfee’s proprietary threat analysis, IPS is able to provide “pre-protection’ against zero day malware, in addition to our leading vulnerability-based network protections.
Network threat behavior analysis – McAfee is releasing a new set of threat analysis appliances, which provide a comprehensive way to inspect the entire network for threats and correlate network behaviours. Additionally, McAfee is the only vendor to provide Layer-7 flow export. This, when coupled with network flow data, empowers security analysts to “turn on the lights’ across the network with visibility into users, data, and applications.
Integration with McAfee Risk Advisor – McAfee’s unique decision support tool empowers administrators to immediately identify which systems are vulnerable to an attack that is underway. By analyzing the vulnerability state of endpoints and the countermeasures currently deployed, this new feature will enable IPS administrators to rapidly deploy a signature to ensure protection of devices pre-patch.
Network security management – The single Network-centric console manages all aspects of the solution, including real-time threat analysis and integration of global threat intelligence feeds. McAfee IPS and behavior analysis solutions are the only solutions that offer native integration with McAfee® ePolicy OrchestratorÃ¢â€ž? security management console.
