McAfee Unveils Stonesoft Integration Plans
McAfee unveiled Comprehensive Threat Protection, a combined product set that includes its newly acquired Stonesoft next-generation firewall acquisition. The company said the combined suite is built to detect advanced threats by leveraging Stonesoft’s malware detection engine. It can then communicate with the rest of the platform to update protection for endpoints and other network security products to block the spread of threats. The company uses a variety of ways to detect threats and a sandbox to inspect suspicious files. The goal of the connected strategy is to share threat details with connected network and endpoint devices in real time to shut down malware communication and quarantine compromised systems. McAfee said its Threat Intelligence Exchange can stop sophisticated malware in milliseconds.
