Agentless Detection with McAfee Vulnerability Manager

McAfee : 26 February, 2010  (New Product)
Threat mitigation using Vulnerability Manager from McAfee makes use of knowledge of the largest and latest threats to provide more proactive protection
McAfee has extended its agent-less malware detection capabilities in McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution to include a weekly top 50 new malware and top 100 most detected malware content feed. As the volume of threats continues to increase, businesses need to know immediately how they are impacted. By making use of the existing and new malware detection capabilities, customers of McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution are able to mitigate threats before they can do damage.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution has been made use of by thousands of companies as a platform for agent-less malware detection. Agent-less malware detection augments traditional anti-virus technology by providing an additional layer of visibility into assets at risk within the network. In addition to traditional vulnerability detection, it also detects assets already infected or those that may not have been fully remediated.

"The agent-less malware detection in McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution provides the first line of defence against infected rogue or unknown assets that connect to the network," said Stuart McClure, senior vice president and general manager of the McAfee Risk and Compliance Business Unit. "We've included hundreds of checks for some of the most prevalent and hard-hitting malware such as the recent Operation Aurora and last year's Conficker worm. Extending upon this existing capability, our customers will benefit - at no additional cost - from the two new content streams. Combining the enterprise scale and agent-less speed of McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution with the robust and deep malware detection capabilities of the McAfee antivirus signature base we are delivering unprecedented agent-less malware detection to the enterprise."

Powered by Global Threat Intelligence from McAfee - real-time, "in-the-cloud" data collection and intelligence distribution service that correlates and analyses data from millions of data points across all threat vectors - McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution receives weekly updates that contain that week's top 50 new malware and top 100 most detected malware content packages. This new dynamic content capability assures that customers can scan for the malware which has the most impact within their network as part of their ongoing vulnerability assessment workflow.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution received a perfect score earning five out of five stars rating in SC Magazine's Vulnerability Management Group Test. Calling out the product's strength with vulnerability management and penetration testing as well as many compliance-based tools. The reviewer justified the Best Buy designation with, "[McAfee] Vulnerability Manager [solution] provides many easy-to-use powerful vulnerability assessment tools in one appliance. For its comprehensive capability and ease of use, we rate this one our Best Buy."
