Intel Security Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management

For the fourth year in a row, McAfee landed in the leader’s quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) report, published by Gartner, Inc. The annual report, which came out in late July, evaluates vendors who offer SIEM products on both the ability to execute and completeness of vision.

The report serves as a survey of the enterprise security landscape with Gartner highlighting early detection of targeted attacks and breach occurrences as the greatest area of unmet need. “Organizations are failing at early breach detection, with more than 92% of breaches undetected by the breached organization. The situation can be improved with stronger threat intelligence, the addition of behavior profiling and better analytics.”

Intel Security’s Security Connected integrations, breadth of device support, ease of data consumption, querying capabilities and enterprise scalability of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) comprised a “completeness of vision” that helped it retain its placement in the top three vendors.

The active integrations that McAfee Enterprise Security Manager offers with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator software for policy-based endpoint management, McAfee Network Security Manager for intrusion prevention and McAfee Vulnerability Manager for vulnerability scanning and remediation—in addition to recent enhancements like McAfee’s Advanced Threat Defense (ATD), Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) and support for AWS deployment—all helped Intel Security stay ahead of the competition.

McAfee provides the threat intelligence needed for combating today’s advanced threats. In order to detect threats, McAfee Enterprise Security Manager prioritizes potential threat alerts before they occur and analyzes data for patterns indicating larger threats. McAfee ESM also leverages contextual information (such as threat feeds, IOCs, vulnerability scans, asset and identity management systems) for a better understanding of the impact security events can can have on business processes—all of which is available in dedicated dashboards for cyber threat management and risk analytics .
