McAfee ePO Platform Gains Insight Into Threat Research

By and on

The latest update to the McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® platform offers a new add-in to provide insight into the latest analysis carried out by McAfee Labs and the Advanced Threat Research team. The Security Resources section of the McAfee ePO console Version 5.10.0 will contain multiple windows providing the latest news.

The first window in the section shows an updated list of the most recent threats research published by the McAfee Labs team. This includes both malware and vulnerability research. For example, this week we released a report that shows it is possible to emulate and modify a patient’s vital signs in real time on a medical network using a patient monitor and central monitoring station. We also include research related to new malware campaigns. All our content is mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK framework and includes all known indicators of compromise, as well as detailing how McAfee products protect against the documented campaign.

Top threats

The section includes a condensed version of the Threat Landscape Dashboard, which contains the top threats across exploit kits, campaigns, ransomware, and vulnerabilities. The following screen shows how the summary will appear in the McAfee ePO console, allowing readers to easily review and click through these threats for more detail.

The latest McAfee ePO console will offer an easy review of analysis gathered by McAfee Labs and the Advanced Threat Research team.
