Security framework strategy defined

McAfee : 23 January, 2013  (New Product)
Responding to increased focus on integrated IT security strategies in corporations, McAfee further develops its Security Connected framework
Security framework strategy defined

McAfee has announced its strategy for building upon Security Connected, the framework in which security products and services work together to safeguard businesses with better protection from new types of attacks.  McAfee will expand its current broad portfolio through strategic acquisitions, development projects and key partnerships to deliver more integrated solutions and comprehensive protection across mobile devices, endpoints, servers, and network through an extensible framework.

When organisations deploy many separate technologies, gaps are created which lead to breaches and compliance violations and allows attacks to happen.  Last year, attacks such as Flame and Shamoon exposed vulnerabilities in the point security product approach.  Additionally, the biggest day-to-day cost driver for organisations is operations including managing multiple security consoles, numerous policies and rules, and constant updates.  To tackle these inefficient silos, Security Connected delivers business efficiency, predictability and actionable information.

“Businesses are looking for integrated security solutions with built in intelligence and policies,” said Chris Christiansen, program vice president, Security Products and Services group at IDC.  “The changes in business today will require the move from simply securing components, to understanding and measuring the security of a business system as a whole.”

“Security is now a boardroom level discussion,” said Michael Fey, chief technology officer at McAfee. “The stakes are high, and businesses require a new model that gives them a comprehensive picture of their entire IT infrastructure.  The industry has been built on a historical thought process that will not support the demands of the future.  We must move to having a real-time understanding and response capability if we are to meet the needs of the future.”

McAfee Security Connected brings network and endpoint together through an extensible framework, centralised management and integrated with global threat intelligence delivers unprecedented visibility across all threat vectors.  At the core of McAfee Security Connected are the principles of integrated solutions, built-in intelligence, and advanced management offered with an extensible architecture for partners that no other vendor can provide.
