McAfee Firewall Enterprise by McAfee
Overview McAfee Firewall Enterprise defends critical assets, such as regulated data repositories (customer, financial, and healthcare data), email and web servers, extranets, and data centers. This proxy-based firewall also offers application visibility and deep application controls for defense, delivers strong policy-based controls, blocks the latest threats, and eliminates unwanted traffic. Firewall Enterprise identifies users and sees the host applications actually used to initiate network connections. A first for the network security industry, this unique host and firewall integration works to identify potential anomalies and threats throughout the inside of an organization’s network.
Advanced firewall security capabilities, such as application identification, reputation-based global intelligence, automated threat feeds, encrypted traffic inspection (SSH/SSL), intrusion prevention, antivirus, and content/URL filtering, block attacks before they occur. Unlike other solutions, McAfee includes these additional security services at no additional charge.
Firewall Enterprise also includes enhanced firewall security powered by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI). McAfee GTI is a comprehensive cloud-based threat intelligence service. Already integrated into McAfee security products, it works in real time, 24 hours a day, to protect customers against cyberthreats across all vectors — file, web, message, and network. McAfee GTI offers the broadest threat data, most robust data correlation, and most complete product integration in the industry. McAfee’s GTI network allows enabled products to evaluate threats on multiple vectors in real time, leading to faster identification of threats and higher capture rates. Firewall Enterprise uses the McAfee GTI network connection reputation service to identify domains, IP addresses, and ports that may be hosting malware attacks, and block those attacks. Firewall Enterprise also uses web reputation to identify URLs that may be infected or hosting malware attacks, as well as sites hosting undesirable content.
McAfee also offers proven centralized management, right-click integration with ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software for endpoint data and mature migration tools to move from legacy firewalls to ours. Firewall Enterprise fully supports McAfee’s SIEM solutions too, including McAfee Enterprise Security Manager and McAfee Event Reporter, providing customizable views and reports for all firewalls across a customer’s global network. This high-assurance firewall solution offers very flexible deployment options — from virtualized software to custom-built hardware to availability on the Crossbeam high-performance platform and running on CloudShield’s trusted cyber platform. Firewall Enterprise is a best fit for organizations that need high-assurance security to protect critical assets inside the network as part of a layered defense strategy.
McAfee Firewall Enterprise Control Center (sold separately) — Offers centralized, enterprise-class network firewall policy management for global-scale deployments.
