McAfee extends SRM portfolio

By : |August 8, 2006 0

BANGALORE: McAfee Inc. today unveiled two new offerings as part of its security risk management portfolio.
 
 McAfee Foundstone Enterprise 5.0, a priority-based vulnerability management solution, and McAfee Preventsys Compliance Auditor and Risk Analyzer allow companies to automate the manually intensive process of reporting security compliance.
 
 "Our enterprise customers are increasingly demanding an end-to-end consolidated view of vulnerability, configuration and compliance information that enables them to manage their security risk," said George Kurtz, senior vice president of risk management at McAfee.
 
 "McAfee’s integrated risk management offerings are designed to provide customers with the means to successfully prioritize their risks, protect their critical assets, and monitor their security compliance."
 
 With McAfee Foundstone Enterprise 5.0, companies can easily prioritize and rank their highest-value business assets then identify their most critical security vulnerabilities and the threats, which could exploit them.
 
 This information allows organizations to respond to their issues by deploying the proper resources where they are needed most. Through Foundstone 5.0’s automated reporting, enterprises are also able to reduce IT operating expenses and achieve real-time metrics to better mitigate their security risk, McAfee said in a statement.
 
 McAfee Foundstone works in conjunction with McAfee Preventsys Compliance Auditor to provide advanced policy compliance reporting capabilities. Customers can now take in Foundstone data and "link" corporate security policies and standards to specific Foundstone checks to ensure business policy objectives are being adhered to across the network. McAfee Preventsys Compliance Auditor supports centralized auditing across all aspects of policy: process, procedure and technical controls, which provides a consistent way to reduce the costs associated with demonstrating security compliance.
 
 To further address compliance needs, McAfee Preventsys Risk Analyzer consolidates and analyzes security data from multi-vendor sources, greatly reducing the time it takes to get a clear, prioritized picture of security risks, compliance issues, and monitor changes to an organization’s risk score.
