The upgraded release includes granular multi-tenancy options that are built for service provider environments can create up to 1000 virtual IPS policies per appliance, with granular policy control in each rule-set capability, including features for mobile service providers, allowing management of network policies for separate customers or services.

McAfee’s new release also includes native inspection of virtual environments through the VMware vShield API. Enforce policy regardless of where the VM physically resides, allowing organisations to leverage native VCenter tools to integrate network security within virtual environments.

A new Network Threat Behavior Analysis virtual appliance extends IPS with enhanced visibility, leveraging the network’s Flow data, including layer 7 information, to give context to IPS threats.
