McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange solution announced today combines local threat data with global intelligence data sources such as McAfee Global Threat Intelligence and other third party and partner fees, to offer comprehensive threat intelligence for businesses.
McAfee Threat Intelligence is a significant evolution of the Security Connected Platform that was delivered by McAfee in 2011.
The new solution identifies targeted attacks and enables customized controls that protect automatically based on each organization’s unique risks and priorities. It offers complete and immediate protection against determined criminals and actors behind the most damaging attacks.
McAfee Security Connected platform now includes a real-time data exchange messaging framework. The McAfee data exchange layer provides real-time context sharing and orchestration, as well as the collective threat intelligence and adaptive threat prevention in McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange.
These breakthroughs boost the protective performance of existing McAfee solutions from endpoint, network and analytics environments, and also deliver a standardized data framework by which partners, competitors, and other third party products will be able to orchestrate together in halting advanced threats.
Mike Fey, worldwide chief technology officer for McAfee, said: “We are making it easier to tie together intelligence and actions so that our customers’ existing products deliver greater protection while simultaneously finding ways to cut operational costs. We are delivering the technology that others are just starting to think about to harden the platform upon which future security products will depend.”
