McAfee enhances security management solution capabilities

McAfee announced enhancements to the industry’s most
comprehensive security management solution, providing automated and real-time
security and risk analytics to proactively identify, assess, manage and report
on enterprise security. 

The McAfee Security Management solution delivers complete
integration between the McAfeeePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform, McAfee
Risk Advisor, and McAfee endpoint products to enable organizations to gain
complete visibility of security and risk events across any on-premise or hosted
desktop, network, or server. 

Today’s organizations are challenged with effectively
managing security and risk programs, as these programs are often comprised of
individual point solutions that provide limited functionality and automation,
and lack integration to key business assets. 

As a result, many security management programs are
inefficient, costly, and fail to provide effective security, which can increase
risk exposure and limit an organization’s ability to perform. 
Organizations must be able to proactively identify, assess and mitigate
security threats and risk events across any technology device on the

The McAfee Security Management solution has enabled Con
J. Franke Electric to remotely identify, assess, and remediate potential issues
across all of our enterprise systems. This has greatly reduced our overall
management time, and delivered phenomenal productivity improvements, reducing
our overall cost,” said Scott Frazier, information systems manager, Con J.
Franke Electric.


Automated and real-time reporting analytics enable
organizations to proactively identify, manage and report across their complete
security and risk profile. Leveraging the latest version of McAfee ePolicy
Orchestrator, the solution provides complete alignment and visibility of
critical security and risk events across the entire IT environment, supporting
both on-premise and SaaS security information via McAfee endpoint solutions.

In addition, automated risk and compliance reporting and
policy assignments based on pre-defined risk or threat scenarios ensures rapid
time-to-value in supporting regulatory and policy compliance

Proactive Risk Analytics allows organizations to analyze
the impact of potential activities to their overall risk profile.  Enabled
by McAfee Risk Advisor, organizations can proactively analyze how changes to
their business environment impact their risk and security profile, in order to
more effectively manage and reduce business risk.

Further, automated application awareness allows security
managers to associate risk, threat and security vulnerability information with
underlying business applications. These combined enhancements deliver
automatic prioritization of top security issues and risks, allowing
organizations to more effectively and rapidly mitigate issues that are most
critical in protecting and securing the business. 

Automates and monitors key security program operations,
providing technical integration and management across the broadest set of
security systems through a single management interface.

Comprehensive automation capabilities include automated
installation and configuration wizards, policy assignments and workflow,
drag-and-drop analytic dashboards, and software update notifications, as well
as automated web APIs that connect all security information and policies with
other IT applications.


Security and risk management now has C-level visibility
within the business, and internal and external stakeholders are holding IT
departments accountable for managing risk,” said Stuart McClure, general
manager of Risk and Compliance at McAfee.

An effective security management program isn’t possible
with manual or reactive methods.  McAfee Security Management allows users
to proactively identify, manage, and automatically report on their security and
risk profile in order to stay ahead of security threats,” McClure added
