Applications and network connectivity continue to grow at incredible rates, while attack techniques continue to advance in sophistication. To make matters worse, these attacks are coming from both inside and outside the network, and even through encrypted protocols.
With the increased number of network-based applications and the exponential growth of threats, traditional firewalls are inadequately protecting your network's data. McAfee Firewall Enterprise is a next-generation firewall that restores control and protection to your network. Discover, control, visualize, and protect your users, network applications, and infrastructure.
McAfee Firewall Enterprise offers unprecedented levels of application control and threat protection. Advanced capabilities, such as application visualization, reputation-based global intelligence, automated threat feeds, encrypted traffic inspection, intrusion prevention, anti-virus, and content filtering, block attacks before they occur.
With its centralized firewall management and reporting, integration with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform, and user-friendly rule-creation capabilities, Firewall Enterprise is easily administered.
Virtual Appliance offerings support VMware and the Riverbed RSP platforms.
Reduce risk from threats on your network
Put the firewall in charge of network security again with integrated comprehensive network protection technology. Integration with McAfee's Global Threat Intelligence infrastructure ensures that you are protected immediately from emerging threats.
Restore policy compliance in the network
Establish control over network applications and ensure alignment with compliance requirements. Allow administrators to quickly and efficiently apply application and user-based policies written in business terms. Powerful visualization tools provide unique insight into the effectiveness of policy controls.
Improve business agility and reduce costs
Lower acquisition and operational costs with an increased protection profile in both physical and virtual network environments. Consolidated security functionality reduces appliance and network complexity. Integrated management platform reduces administration and investigation time and effort. Do more with your assets and be more responsive to changing business needs.
AppPrism allows you to confidently discover, control, visualize, and protect thousands of network applications. With AppPrism, you can gain individual application function control within the application.
Identity-aware policy enforcement
Firewall rules can now align directly with organizational policy statements. Integration with existing network identity infrastructure enables simple deployment while aligning network security with the organization system of record.
Consolidated real-time threat protection
Consolidation of security services is fundamental to the next-generation firewall in covering multiple attack vectors. Harness the power of 100 million sensors worldwide, providing real-time threat feeds to deliver predictive and pro-active security protection. Greatly reduce your time to protection with automated threat feeds that are delivered without taking the firewall offline.
Policy optimization tools
Simplify the firewall's policy in real time. Eliminate the hours spent looking for overlapping, conflicting, or inactive rules. The intuitive interface immediately identifies firewall rule optimizations, as you modify or construct rules.
Centrally manage firewalls and generate reports; create rules and selectively apply anti-virus, IPS signatures, URL filtering, and more from a single screen; correlate firewall rules to users and applications to ease planning and troubleshooting. Integration with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform provides a holistic view of firewall health information and an understanding of desktop and server security posture.
