Features & Benefits:

Get intelligent security management
Reduce the expertise needed and time required to monitor and investigate security events, while simplifying the administration of large and complex deployments. Progressive disclosure delivers the right information when and where you need it through guided drill downs, while hierarchal management scales for the largest deployments.

Attain unparalleled threat protection
Unparalleled threat prevention is born from an ultra efficient vulnerability-based signature engine that is transformed into next-generation platform by integrating cutting-edge behavioral analysis and multi-event correlation. The low-touch signature defenses keep operation costs low, efficiently defending against known threats, while the advanced behavioral analysis and event correlation protects against next-generation and zero-day threats.

Leverage global malware protection
Get comprehensive malware coverage by intelligently directing a portfolio of antimalware defenses. Confidently reduce malware security holes, with more defenses than any other vendor, against this newest and deadliest network security attack vector.

Use our Security Connected framework
Improve network security posture, optimizes network security for greater cost effectiveness, and aligns network security strategically with business initiatives. Security Connected is McAfee’s integrated approach to network security that seamlessly incorporates data and workflows from other security products.

Attain performance and scalability
Get reliable performance so the best security is available under the heaviest loads, as the network grows, or even if segments of the network fail. Achieve high-performance, multi-gigabit throughput even when next-generation features, enabled with stateful fail-over, are available.

Gain visibility and control
Get user and device intelligence that seamlessly integrates into controls, analysis, and reporting in deep applications. This deep visibility uncovers suspicious anomalies that cannot be seen in aggregate, allowing more flexibility to align control policies to the needs of the organization.

Protect Against Today’s Stealthy Threats

Your network faces advanced, stealthy attacks that can evade traditional detection methods, leaving your network exposed to crippling breaches and downtime. Unfortunately, most organizations lack the financial and operational resources to implement and manage the combination of tools and technologies required to provide adequate defense.

McAfee Network Security Platform is an integrated network security solution that combines next-generation threat prevention with intuitive security management to improve detection accuracy and streamline security operations. It provides industry-leading coverage against malware, zero-day threats, denial-of-service attacks, and botnets.

Unparalleled threat prevention

McAfee Network Security Platform is based on a next-generation inspection architecture designed to perform deep inspection of network traffic while maintaining line-rate speeds. It uses a combination of advanced inspection techniques—including full protocol analysis, threat reputation, behavior analysis, and advanced malware analysis to detect and prevent both known and zero-day attacks on the network.

Comprehensive malware defense

No single malware detection technology can prevent all attacks, which is why McAfee Network Security Platform incorporates several advanced malware analysis techniques to prevent unwanted malware from wreaking havoc on your network. It combines file-reputation from McAfee GTI, deep file analysis with JavaScript detection, and an advanced anti-malware engine to detect zero-day threats, custom malware, and other stealthy attacks.

Security Connected

Getting your hands on the data you need has never been easier. McAfee offers real-time integration with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) software and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager for real-time correlation of network events across all relevant sources. Through integration with McAfee ePO software and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, McAfee Network Security Platform gets an accurate view of threats as they relate to devices and users and which ones present the greatest risk to the organization. The solution incorporates device details, user information, endpoint security posture, vulnerability assessments, and other rich information to help organizations understand threat severity and business risk factors.

Performance and scalability

Get the best of both worlds—security and high performance. McAfee Network Security Platform combines a single-pass, protocol-based inspection architecture with purpose-built, carrier-class hardware to achieve real-world inspection of more than 20 Gbps in a single device. Its ultra-efficient architecture preserves performance regardless of security settings, while other IPS solutions can experience up to 50 percent reduction in throughput with “security over performance” policies.

Visibility and control

Make informed decisions about the applications and protocols on your network. McAfee Network Security Platform is the first and only IPS solution to combine advanced threat prevention and application awareness into a single security decision engine. We correlate threat activity with application usage, including layer 7 visibility of more than 1,500 applications and protocols, to allow you to make more informed decisions about which applications you allow on your network. In addition to application identification, McAfee Network Security Platform provides user and device visibility. It prioritizes risky hosts and users, including active botnets, through the identification of anomalous network behavior.

Intelligent security management

Make the most of your security investment through intelligent network security management. McAfee Network Security Manager offers scalable webbased management from two to several hundred network security appliances. It offers intuitive progressive disclosure workflows that guide administrators to relevant alerts as well as easy-to-use security dashboards that automatically prioritize events based on alert severity and relevancy. McAfee Network Security Platform integrates with McAfee ePO software to give your organization a consolidated view of risk and compliance across the entire enterprise, including up-to-the-minute assessments of at-risk infrastructure based on system vulnerabilities, network defenses, and endpoint security levels.
