When it comes to fighting modern malware, there is no “silver bullet” that can guard against every threat every time. That’s why Intel Security takes a different approach. We combine multiple layers of advanced malware protection, detection, and correction technologies into a single endpoint defense fabric. To keep up with cyberthreat innovation, effective detection and analysis requires new state-of-the-art anti-malware technologies: Real Protect and Dynamic Application Containment, complemented by the McAfee® Advanced Threat Defense sandbox. Find out how these tools work together to systematically protect against the most dangerous malware threats.
W32/Pinkslipbot is a self-propagating malware family created to steal personal and financial data from its victims. Download this white paper to get an in-depth technical look into Pinkslipbot and learn how Intel Security technology can help protect against Pinkslipbot.
The relentless march of end user organizations toward cloud services continued during the past 12 months, according to a new SANS survey, despite long-standing fears about information security, the lack of visibility into cloud provider security controls and the shortcomings of controls available to those who utilize cloud services. One big difference since last year’s SANS cloud security survey, “Information security professionals appear to have accepted that the cloud is here to stay and are, sometimes unenthusiastically, doing what they can to make the frontier secure.” To learn more, get the full SANS report.
This e-book provides an overview of private cloud models, the underlying technologies that enable successful deployments and the security challenges—and benefits—of deploying a private cloud. Finally, it discusses security technologies and approaches that maximize protection, minimize risk and leverage the private cloud to drive innovation.
The software-defined data center (SDDC) holds tremendous promise for enterprise IT. Within the SDDC, the benefits of server virtualization are extended to storage and networking, so the entire infrastructure can be abstracted and centrally managed under a unified platform. IT teams are able to leverage unprecedented levels of virtualization, orchestration, and automation to achieve the services-based delivery model that enables true digital transformation.
Gartner, Inc. has positioned McAfee as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) for the tenth consecutive time. With the shift to cloud-based architectures, the role of IPS is changing. Get access to this valuable Gartner research, $1,995.00 USD value, compliments of McAfee.
Behind the vast majority of legitimate alerts sent to the IT security team is an attacker who exploits multiple attack techniques to infiltrate your infrastructure and compromise your critical data and systems. Targeted multi-phased attacks include a series of cyber attack chain steps: recognition, vulnerability analysis, operation and, finally, exfiltration of critical business data.
The Adwind Remote Administration Tool is a backdoor Trojan written in Java language that targets various platforms that support Java files. Adwind does not exploit any vulnerabilities. In most cases, for an infection to succeed, the user must run the malware by double-clicking the .jar file that is usually distributed as an attachment, or opening an infected Microsoft Word document. The infection spreads if the Java Runtime Environment is installed on the user's computer. After the malicious .jar file is executed on the target system, the malware installs silently and connects to a remote server via a preconfigured port to receive commands from a remote attacker and perform other illegal operations.
This report presents the results of ESG Lab’s validation testing of the McAfee Next Generation Firewall. Integrating application control, intrusion detection, and evasion prevention, the product is designed to provide next generation firewall services, leveraging a unified software core to enable the deployment of multiple security services when and where they are needed.
Attacks today incorporate increasingly sophisticated methods of social engineering and client-side software manipulation to exfiltrate data without detection. Some attackers leverage so-called spearphishing to entice employees to give up access information and spread their attacks to other enterprise systems; others use password crackers against compromised applications in order to gain further access rights to the network. The attackers might also set up channels for command and control communications with the compromised systems, as in the case of the Zeus or SpyEye bot infections.
High availability is a must in our current cyberculture, and several advanced features that should be part of your next-generation firewall can help ensure that your network and your enterprise are continually up and running.
URL filtering is a type of content filtering that allows or blocks users from accessing specific websites. The practice has become an essential one on enterprise networks, with the goal of blocking employees from accessing content that would be a detriment to their productivity or the company as a whole. Blocked sites may include those that threaten the security of the organization, have objectionable content, or are bandwidth-intensive enough to strain company resources.
