A holistic approach to managing risk

McAfee unveiled a risk management solution for IT security that combines real-time threat intelligence with global vulnerability scanning across applications, databases and networks, and correlates that with security countermeasures already in place, to help organizations assess their highest priority risks.

The McAfee Risk Management solution automatically pulls information together into a real-time risk analytics engine. This enables organizations to fully understand their risk posture across every meaningful sector of their IT environment including databases, web applications, systems and networks to know precisely what is needed to optimize their security posture.

The underpinning for the McAfee Risk Management solution consists of three products:

McAfee Risk Advisor 2.5 – a risk management dashboard that correlates threat, vulnerability and countermeasure information to pinpoint critical assets at risk. McAfee Risk Advisor enables organizations to fully understand their risk posture across every meaningful sector of their IT environment to know precisely what is needed to optimize their security. Notable enhancements to McAfee Risk Advisor 2.5 include risk scoring and advanced patch optimization.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager 7.0 – a proven vulnerability assessment product with unrivaled accuracy, depth and breadth of coverage. Version 7.0 adds deep web application scanning that was designed by thought leaders in the web application security space.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager for Databases – automatically finds databases on the network, determines if the latest patches have been applied, and tests for weak passwords, default accounts, and other common vulnerabilities. This new product comes with more than 3,000 database vulnerability checks.
