Over the past decade, the web has become an increasingly dangerous place, as attackers launch ever more sophisticated attacks. Enterprises of all sizes, from small to global, need to protect their internal systems against both inbound and outbound attack vectors.
External attacks can take many forms. A user’s email address may be exposed to hackers who send a phishing message with links to a web site that downloads malicious software onto the user’s PC without them being aware of it. Or, an advanced malware attack may use sophisticated obfuscation techniques to hide its true identity, enabling it to slip past a signature-based malware detection tool.
Data leakage can come from internal users who, inadvertently or deliberately, transfer sensitive or confidential information outside the network perimeter, or a botnet client transmitting a password file to a master server located overseas.
To counter these threats, security professionals need to deploy interlocking, coordinated security systems designed to work together. In this session, McAfee will discuss how its security platforms work together to comprehensively address the multiple security threats that customer’s encounter.
