In the area of multifunction devices, McAfee now has a partnership with Xerox to leverage whitelisting capabilities in support of printers and multifunction devices.
"Printers are now vulnerable to SQL injection, cross-site scripting and many of the other exploits common to computers," explained Rick Dastin, president of the Xerox Office and Solution Business Group. "Whitelisting works well in this situation because we know exactly what should be running on those devices. So we can work with the known good."
In addition, McAfee Vulnerability Manager now has a new Asset Manager that can automatically detect and inspect devices coming onto the network.
"At least 20 percent of the devices on the network are not known by IT," said Ken Levine, senior vice president of the security management business unit. "This will eliminate the blind spot."
A number of other new rollouts are expected at the show this week, including a framework through which McAfee will be able to integrate more effectively with the offerings of other vendors, including competitors.
