McAfee, part of Intel Security, announced the latest release of McAfee Next Generation Firewall, which now seamlessly integrates with several key McAfee solutions and technologies, offering businesses and government agencies an ever-expanding ecosystem of threat defenses. Important new integrations with the McAfee Security Connected framework provide McAfee Next Generation Firewall customers with layered protection against the latest threats and evasions, along with improved workflows and operational efficiencies.
“Earlier this year, McAfee outlined our game-changing approach to strengthening network security through a powerful combination of integrated technologies,” said Pat Calhoun, general manager of network security at McAfee, part of Intel Security. “This release represents another significant milestone in bringing that strategy to fruition and further empowers our customers with the tools they need to outmaneuver attackers with even greater ease and precision.”
Utilizing actionable endpoint information from McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, McAfee Next Generation Firewall customers will now see operational efficiency benefits with valuable insights into endpoint security postures and simplified administrative workflows when investigating incidents. Integration with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager improves security posture, reduces event response times, and enables continuous monitoring and alerting of compliance status. McAfee Advanced Threat Defense integration provides real time protection against rapidly mutating malware and zero-day attacks. And lastly, reputation intelligence from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence enables McAfee Next Generation Firewall to provide superior protection against globally active advanced threats and malware.
