Calhoun Presents Product Road Map
Pat Calhoun, general manager of network security at McAfee, unveiled McAfee's product road map, which includes the incorporation of its Stonesoft next-generation firewall acquisition. The company also has incorporated its acquisition of ValidEdge sandboxing technology for malware behavioral analysis. Sandboxing is a component in McAfee's Advanced Threat Defense technology. Calhoun said the company's strategy is not only to detect advanced threats but also to contain and isolate an infection, then automate the process of fixing it. McAfee also unveiled the next version of its NitroSecurity security information event management system with endpoint awareness, enabling businesses to query, collect and analyze information about internal operations and endpoints across the enterprise.
