Meanwhile, McAfee said it has updated Enterprise Security Manager (McAfee ESM 11) — leveraging a new data architecture optimized for scalability, performance, faster search, and collaboration.

McAfee’s latest security information and event management (SIEM) with advanced analytics will bring human-machine teaming to the next level.

Analyst firm Gartner has named McAfee a Leader for the seventh consecutive year in the December 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.”
