ESG Lab Validation Report – McAfee Next Generation Firewall
ESG Lab’s expert third-party perspective is based on our own hands-on testing as well as on interviews with customers who use these products in production environments. Products in the firewall space have different strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities for various types of security needs. ESG Lab believes that the McAfee Next Generation Firewall offers the features,
Take An Integrated Approach to Advanced Malware (Threats)
With today’s advanced malware threats, IT departments need to expand their coverage with an appropriately configured security infrastructure. Finding, freezing and fixing advanced exploits fast requires a fully integrated, well managed approach to IT security.
Deeper Inspection. Better Threat Protection.
Stealthy malware can slip past your intrusion prevention system, gateway, and firewall. This graphic shows you how to supercharge your defenses with McAfee Advanced threat Defense. The combination of sandboxing and static code analysis can spot even the stealthiest malware.
Find, Freeze, and Fix Advanced Threats
Your management is asking for an advanced malware detection and response strategy that is as sophisticated and adaptive as the attackers your organization faces. This technology blueprint explores the options available in advanced malware security and how they affect the performance, efficacy, cost, and management complexity of an overall solution.
Neutralize Advance Threats
Profit-motivated hackers are unleashing advanced targeted malware to attack previously invincible organizations like banks, critical infrastructures, and government agencies. No single stand-alone product can defend adequately against these sophisticated and insidious threats. Comprehensive malware protection requires the right layers within each asset and within your infrastructure—and they must all work together to identify, contain, and
Building a Better Sandbox
Cybercriminals and IT security strategists are locked in an escalating arms race. One of the most promising developments on the defensive side is occurring in the area of dynamic analysis detection, commonly known as sandboxing. Not surprisingly, the architectural approaches taken by leading developers vary widely, as do the ways these new products fit into
Advanced Targeted Attacks: It Takes a System
At Black Hat 2013, McAfee polled attendees to see where they struggled with the advanced malware used in low-prevalence and targeted attacks. While detection led the list of challenges, false positives, protection, and timely response and repair represented huge frustrations—and huge costs as well. However, with McAfee® Threat Intelligence Exchange and the McAfee Security Connected
Advanced Evasion Techniques for Dummies
This book provides an overview of network security in general, and explains how cybercriminals can use hidden or currently undetectable methods to penetrate protected network systems. Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) bypass current common network security solutions. They can transport any attack or exploit through network security devices and firewalls, next generation firewalls, intrusion detection and
Protect Against Advanced Evasion Techniques
The network security paradigm is currently shifting toward a new reality as advanced hacking methods become more prevalent and harder to detect. An example of such a method is advanced evasion techniques (AETs). Although evasions have been documented extensively in the last fifteen years, security vendors have systematically ignored the significance of evasions. Some vendors
Advanced Attacks Demand New Defenses
Security threat and response is a vicious circle of escalating (and increasingly cagey) attacks and sophisticated (and increasingly costly) defenses. The latest generation of malware includes deviously creative evasive techniques crafted to exploit ambiguities in the Internet’s underlying technology, flaws in network software stacks, and limitations of security appliances. In this report, we discuss these
