McAfee has announced the McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange, a solution that’s designed to bring together intelligence information from local and global sources with enterprise-wide security products. McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange is expected to become available in the fourth quarter of 2014.
The solution is designed to provide immediate protection to both endpoint and network controls through information sharing and real-time preventive actions.
McAfee says that the Threat Intelligence Exchange represents a significant evolution, since it can do in milliseconds what other products do in days, weeks and even months.
The solution optimizes an organization’s defenses by orchestrating security controls to identify patterns, immunize assets to make sure they’re protected against new malware, and prevent data exfiltration.
In order to offer comprehensive threat intelligence, information from global sources is combined with local data. This enables businesses to immediately identify targeted attacks and potential risks.
Excerpt from the DataSheet:
“McAfee® Threat Intelligence Exchange enables adaptive threat prevention by sharing relevant security data across endpoints, gateways, and other security products. Sharing of data allows these products to operate as one, exchanging and acting
on collective threat intelligence. By delivering a cohesive framework where security products collectively pinpoint threats and expose threat trends within an organization,McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange significantly optimizes threat prevention.
McAfee narrows the gap from encounter to containment from days, weeks, and months down to milliseconds.”
