McAfee Database Activity Monitoring
McAfee Database Activity Monitoring automatically finds databases on your network, protects them with a set of preconfigured defenses, and helps you build a custom security policy for your environment — making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors and improve critical asset data protection. Database Activity Monitoring cost-effectively protects your data from all threats by monitoring activity locally on each database server and by alerting or terminating malicious behavior in real time, even when running in virtualized or cloud computing environments.
Comprehensive threat protection — Protect even your unpatched databases against zero-day attacks by blocking attacks that exploit known vulnerabilities and terminating sessions that violate your security policies.
Detailed audit trail reports — Audit trail reports are available to meet SOX, PCI, and other compliance audit requirements. During post-incident forensic analysis, this audit trail can help you understand the amount of lost data and gain greater insight into malicious activity.
Streamlined patching with no required downtime — Applying missing patches and fixing misconfigurations found by the Database Activity Monitoring vulnerability scan will improve the security posture of your databases immediately — without requiring any downtime via McAfee’s virtual patching technology.
McAfee Security Scanner for Databases
McAfee Security Scanner for Databases automatically finds databases on your network, determines if the latest patches have been applied, and tests for weak passwords, default accounts, and other common threats — making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors and improve protection of critical data assets.
Maximum visibility into security posture — Security Scanner for Databases gives auditors, pen testers, consultants, and database administrators a solution for gaining unmatched visibility into an organization’s security posture by conducting a thorough check of more than 3,500 potential database vulnerabilities.
Actionable data to address risk — With Security Scanner for Databases, you can review expert recommendations to address these risks, helping to build an effective database security policy and meet regulatory mandates.
McAfee Virtual Patching for Databases
McAfee Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time, without requiring database downtime or application testing. With Virtual Patching for Databases, organizations secure protection from threats even if they have not yet installed a vendor-released patch to deal with a known vulnerability.
Security for older versions of database management systems — Protect older versions of database management systems, even those no longer supported by the vendor. For applications running on older versions of the database where patches are no longer provided, Virtual Patching for Databases can protect the systems from attacks, helping to satisfy governance requirements.
Uninterrupted protection for production databases — Installation is nonintrusive, as the sensor is read-only, installs as a user process, and makes no changes to the database management system software. Only minimal testing of applications is necessary.
No database downtime required — Implement patch protection without having to take down databases during installation.
McAfee Management for Optimized Virtual Environments (MOVE) AntiVirus for virtual desktops and servers is uniquely designed to relieve the overhead of traditional endpoint security, yet provide the protection and performance essential for success.
Traditional anti-virus software has proven to be very resource intensive for virtual environments. Multiple virtual machines could perform anti-virus scanning at the same time, bringing the host machine to a crawl. Widely called anti-virus storms, they disrupt the business continuity of your mission-critical applications. Secure virtualization technologies tied to a specific hypervisor creates virtual environment silos and increases IT administrative overhead. Anti-virus scanning ignores the load on the hypervisor, compromising application performance when it’s needed the most. Traditional anti-virus software has a relatively large footprint, consuming precious shared resources. Signature files are not updated in offline virtual machines, leaving them vulnerable when they’re brought back online.
Whether you are deploying virtual desktops or well underway with server virtualization within your data center, McAfee MOVE AntiVirus provides optimized protection that specifically addresses the common problems encountered in virtualized environments with traditional anti-virus solutions. MOVE AntiVirus offers malware protection and security without compromising performance, so you get the most from your virtual environment while actively protecting your business data.
MOVE AntiVirus addresses these challenges by:
Optimizing security for virtualized environments — By optimizing and offloading McAfee VirusScan Enterprise’s processing features, MOVE AntiVirus enables you to obtain higher operational returns, and minimizes the performance impact on virtual servers with enhanced scan avoidance and scanning based on overall load of the hypervisor.
Standardizing security across all major hypervisors — Whether you are starting to deploy virtual machines or well on your way with cloud computing, MOVE AntiVirus offers the flexibility of consistent security across all major hypervisors.
Ensuring best security management and delivery for virtualized environments — Utilize and optimize your current McAfee VirusScan Enterprise protection in virtualized environments, providing security management and effectiveness with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) console. Ensure that security policies remain intact, even as virtual machines migrate within the virtualized environment.
McAfee Total Protection for Server
