McAfee, part of Intel Security, today announced that leading research firm Gartner, Inc. has positioned the company in the leaders quadrant in its “Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management” as published on June 25, 2014*. According to the report, “Broad adoption of SIEM technology is being driven by the need to detect threats and breaches, as well as by compliance needs.” And “the greatest area of unmet need is effective targeted attack and breach detection. Organizations are failing at early breach detection, with more than 92 percent of breaches undetected by the breached organization. The situation can be improved with stronger threat intelligence, the addition of behavior profiling and better analytics.” Additionally, the report highlights that “scalability is a major consideration with SIEM deployments.” “McAfee Enterprise Security Manager gives organizations broad visibility into their network and endpoints so they have the ability to take action and control their security posture. Our customers have the advantage of finding those ‘needles in a haystack’ of big data,” said Ryan Allphin, senior vice president and general manager of the security management business unit at McAfee, part of Intel Security. “We believe McAfee’s position in the leaders quadrant demonstrates the ability of our McAfee SIEM solution to enable organizations with a market leading solution that provides threat detection and remediation along with a compliance framework by combining threat intelligence, high performance, advanced analytics, scalability, continuous monitoring and ease of use.” McAfee Enterprise Security Manager provides the speed and rich context required to identify critical threats, respond quickly, and easily address compliance requirements. Continuous global threat and enterprise risk feeds, including the optional feed from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence which leverages more than 100 million global sensors and more than 350 researchers delivers adaptive and autonomous risk management, allowing remediation of threats and compliance reporting in minutes instead of hours.
