Log search

Users can hunt faster by searching events in seconds and get immediate access to raw logs for context. The solution facilitates searching data to uncover additional context concerning security incidents. Users can also tap into the power of raw log search from the McAfee Enterprise Security Manager console without switching windows. The software gives quick access to the information needed to accelerate investigations.

Enterprise security manager

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager brings intelligent, fast, and accurate SIEM and log management. Furthermore, it has actionable analysis guides that triage and speed investigation and threat remediation. Users can analyze data for patterns that may indicate a larger threat. With this solution, prioritized alerts surface potential threats before they cause problems.

Global threat intelligence (GTI)

McAfee GTI for big security data puts the power of McAfee Labs directly into the security monitoring flow. With this feature, businesses can pinpoint malicious activity in real-time. Companies can also ensure that servers and systems continually have a precise reputation score, shrinking the incident response time window and providing risk analysis. McAfee Labs extends an understanding of the global threat landscape, constantly updating threat intelligence with newly detected infected and malicious systems.
