Behaviour analysis integrated into intruder protection on McAfee appliance

McAfee : 10 December, 2009  (New Product)
McAfee's Network Security Platform gains significant enhancements including the introduction of both user- and network threat-behaviour analysis and global threat intelligence to improve effectiveness against zero-day malware
McAfee has announced the McAfee Full Spectrum Network Defence solution, which delivers McAfee's commitment to be the world's leading network security vendor. This announcement features major enhancements to the McAfee Network Security Platform, including day-zero malware detection, network threat behaviour analysis, and application-level security. The solution includes Network IPS, User Behaviour Analysis, Network Threat Behaviour Analysis, Network Access Control, and McAfee Firewall Enterprise.

"Organisations typically lack the ability to see the full spectrum of network threats," said Charles Kolodgy, research director at IDC. "They need deeper insight into the whole set of threats in order to provide full protection for critical business systems such as data centres. Integrating threat detection provides full visibility when inspection isn't enough or when it isn't feasible for cost or scalability reasons. In an incredibly dynamic threat environment, the ability to detect malware in real-time can provide tangible benefits."

Today's announcement reinforces McAfee's innovative approach to solving the toughest challenges in network security. Full Spectrum Network Defence is the first solution to integrate a network intrusion prevention system with behavioral analysis tools to provide additional visibility across the network, real-time threat protection technology, and enterprise risk assessment tools.

"Customers have come to rely on McAfee for the best network protection available, and our commitment to them is to continue to innovate and break the moulds of traditional Network IPS and firewall capabilities," said Dan Ryan, executive vice president and general manager of the Network Security business unit at McAfee. "With Full Spectrum Network Defence, we are reinforcing that commitment by integrating best-in-class security technologies into our network defence products. We will continue to deliver our customer demands by providing powerful new tools that extend visibility into the vast unprotected areas of the network."

Full Spectrum Network Defence 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 Defence 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 Behaviour 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 analysing 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 behaviour analysis solutions are the only solutions that offer native integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator security management console.
