Intelligence-Aware Security Controls Leverage Information across Distributed Security Solutions to Accelerate Threat Discovery and Remediation
Dubai, United Arab Emirates--October 19, 2014: Today McAfee, part of Intel Security, announced the latest release of McAfee Next Generation Firewall, which now seamlessly integrates with several key McAfee solutions and technologies, offering businesses and government agencies an ever-expanding ecosystem of threat defenses. Important new integrations with the McAfee Security Connected framework provide McAfee Next Generation Firewall customers with layered protection against the latest threats and evasions, along with improved workflows and operational efficiencies.
Utilizing actionable endpoint information from McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, McAfee Next Generation Firewall customers will now see operational efficiency benefits with valuable insights into endpoint security postures and simplified administrative workflows when investigating incidents. Integration with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager improves security posture, reduces event response times, and enables continuous monitoring and alerting of compliance status. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense integration provides real time protection against rapidly mutating malware and zero-day attacks. And lastly, reputation intelligence from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence enables McAfee Next Generation Firewall to provide superior protection against globally active advanced threats and malware.
"In today's escalating cyber threat landscape, businesses and organizations worldwide and in the Middle East region demand fully resilient network security solutions. This release of McAfee's Next Generation Firewall offers the superior protection of the 'connected' or 'intelligence aware' firewall that easily adapts to security needs providing the best protection for businesses and their digital assets," said Hamed Diab, McAfee's regional director in the Middle East and North Africa.
McAfee Next Generation Firewall protects enterprise networks with high-performance "intelligence aware" security supported by real-time updates from McAfee's Security Connected ecosystem. This enables McAfee to deliver a leading-edge defense against advanced evasions, along with complete next generation firewall protections "when and where you need it" - remote sites, branch offices, data centers and the network edge.
McAfee Next Generation Firewall starts with a solid foundation of protections including granular application control, intrusion prevention system, built-in virtual private network and deep packet inspection - all in an efficient, extensible and highly scalable unified design. Then McAfee adds powerful anti-evasion technologies that decode and normalize network traffic - before inspection and across all protocol layers - in order to expose and block the most advanced attack methods.
