In their recent 2015 Global Business Technographics® Security Survey, Forrester reports that improving threat intelligence capabilities is a top priority for 71% of enterprises. But enterprises don’t need to improve their ability to gather threat intelligence—the abundance of shared intelligence and threat inputs is already overwhelming for security teams. Operationalizing the intelligence once you have collected it is the big challenge. It’s crucial to have a system that not only collects threat information, but also prioritizes and disseminates it to all your security control points in a timely and efficient manner. McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange can operationalize threat intelligence in real time. It now allows inputs from more sources and is expanding its connection to more security solutions—from Intel Security and other security vendors.
Available today, McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange 1.2 imports threat information from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, third-party threat information, and Structured Threat Information eXpression (STIX) files. This information is harmonized with locally collected threat information, originating on your endpoints and servers, your sandboxing solution, and now, McAfee Web Gateway.
This global and local threat information is then shared throughout your entire Security Connected ecosystem in milliseconds, so that all your security control points can receive this data and can act on it, applying appropriate remediations when and where they’re needed. Collaborating with McAfee Data Exchange Layer, the Intel Security ecosystem acts as one—with seamless, real-time communication among all your solutions via the McAfee Data Exchange Layer. That includes Intel Security products and solutions from other vendors, including ForesScout, TITUS, InfoReliance, CyberArk, TrapX and Avecto.
More details on McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange 1.2, including partner and customer case studies and a live demo, will be shared at Intel Security FOCUS 15, October 26 to October 28.
