It integrates network intrusion prevention system with behavioral analysis tools to provide visibility across the network, real-time threat protection technology and enterprise risk assessment tools.

According to McAfee, the new offering identifies traffic, users, content and applications, and defends against any threats that may exist across the network. It is powered by McAfee NetPrism technology, protocol analysis approach to network threat protection and features enhanced interlock between network security, endpoint security and global threat intelligence, to deliver threat protection.

The new offering includes benefits such as real-time malware protection; network threat behavior analysis; integration with McAfee risk advisor; and network security management, the company said.

Dan Ryan, executive vice president and general manager of network security business unit at McAfee, said: “Customers have come to rely on McAfee for the best network protection available, and our commitment to them is to continue to innovate and break the molds of traditional Network IPS and firewall capabilities.

With Full Spectrum Network Defense, we are reinforcing that commitment by integrating best-in-class security technologies into our network defense products. We will continue to deliver on customer demand by providing powerful new tools that extend visibility into the vast unprotected areas of the network.”
