McAfee launches upgraded firewall

DUBAI, October 19, 2014

McAfee, part of Intel Security, has announced the latest release of McAfee Next Generation Firewall, offering enterprises an expanded ecosystem of threat defence.

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, a statement said.

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, according to the statement.

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.

“In today’s escalating cyber threat landscape, businesses and organizations worldwide and in the Middle East region demand fully resilient network security solutions,” said Hamed Diab, McAfee’s regional director for Mena.

“This release of McAfee’s Next Generation Firewall offers the superior protection of the ‘connected’ or ‘intelligence aware’ firewall that easily adapts to security needs providing the best protection for businesses and their digital assets.”

McAfee Next Generation Firewall protects enterprise networks with high-performance “intelligence aware” security supported by real-time updates from McAfee’s Security Connected ecosystem.

This enables McAfee to deliver a leading-edge defence against advanced evasions, along with complete next generation firewall protections “when and where you need it” - remote sites, branch offices, data centers and the network edge. – TradeArabia News Service
