At the 2013 RSA Security Conference, Scott Taschler, Systems Engineer at McAfee, helped sum up the McAfee ESM experience: fast, efficient, and easy to use. McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) delivers fast, intelligent, and accurate SIEM and log management on all systems, networks databases, and applications.
McAfee ESM stands out thanks to its tight integration with the McAfee ecosystem, including ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software, McAfee Network Security Manager (NSM), McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, and McAfee Vulnerability Manager (MVM).
Taschler says “These integrations enable McAfee ESM to take intelligent actions – changing policies at the endpoint, quarantining suspicious and malicious systems at the network and gathering critical intelligence through vulnerability scanning.”
In addition, McAfee ESM integrates with McAfee Real Time to proactively inspect the real-time system state of endpoints and servers, effectively moving from passive monitoring to an “endpoint aware” SIEM.
