Launches McAfee Real Time for ePO and Delivers Security Connected SIEM
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
McAfee is raising the bar on intelligent threat identification, time to respond
and robust, unified security management with the latest updates to its security
management solutions delivering on its recently announced security connected
vision. McAfee Real Time for ePolicy Orchestrator software is the first security
management system that lets businesses instantly find information about any
computer, deploy products or update configurations in a matter of seconds. 

Additionally, McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is now actively connected to
the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform, McAfee Vulnerability
Manager, and the McAfee Network Security Platform - automatically initiating
endpoint and network security policy changes based on its powerful correlation
capability. Together, these solutions set a new industry standard for time to
respond, situational awareness and operational efficiency. 

"We are always looking for ways to improve our security defenses," said Ben
Shackelford, IT security manager at Cobham North America. "McAfee`s security
connected approach bridges operational silos and strengthens management. We are
excited to take advantage of the latest innovations on this front in order to
improve our security visibility and shorten our response time. We rely on McAfee
ePolicy Orchestrator and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager to manage security
operations and security monitoring, and now Real Time for ePO combined with
active integration with SIEM, we can do an even better job." 

Security Management Solutions:

* McAfee Real Time for ePO adds real-time security investigation capabilities to
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator software, the leading security management platform.
McAfee Real Time for ePO lets security administrators query thousands of assets
across their enterprise in seconds, enabling them to make security decisions
based on "what is" versus "what was." This ground-breaking technology
dramatically increases situational awareness and reduces exposure, risk, and
cost of security. The McAfee ePO platform provides the most complete, scalable
security management solution. It now moves even farther ahead of alternative
security operations management systems that take hours or days to collect
endpoint data and then days to remediate at-risk systems. 
* McAfee Enterprise Security Manager now provides active integration with
ePolicy Orchestrator software, McAfee Network Security Platform and McAfee
Vulnerability Manager. McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is the only SIEM that
is smart and fast at the same time - providing real-time actionable security
intelligence. With this release, SIEM moves from passive monitoring to an
automated incident response platform by leveraging its powerful correlation
engine to identify threats and respond immediately - automatically sending
policy commands to McAfee software and integrated partner solutions.

"As attacks grow more complex, our customers require simpler, faster and more
effective methods to manage security," said Ken Levine, senior vice president
and general manager of Security Management at McAfee. "With this release,
endpoint, network and security management are brought together in a highly
integrated, intelligently connected system. McAfee is the only security provider
that can deliver this based on the depth and breadth of our solution offering,
combined with the security management power of McAfee ePO software and McAfee
Enterprise Security Manager."
