McAfee announces network security suite

McAfee announced McAfee Total Protection for Network that includes the McAfee M-8000 Network Security Platform and the McAfee Content Security Blade Server

McAfee announced McAfee Total Protection for Network, a new suite designed to end the "appliance and product fatigue" associated with deploying, maintaining and managing multiple security solutions. McAfee Total Protection for Network includes the McAfee M-8000 Network Security Platform, formerly known as IntruShield and the McAfee Content Security Blade Server, announced separately. 

"As enterprises deploy advanced network features and capabilities, security challenges are expanded by a complex threat environment that requires additional security solutions. However, administering multiple security solutions has become unmanageable," said Charles Kolodgy, IDC research director for Secure Content and Threat Management. 

With each new security threat, new appliances emerge to help companies combat the challenge. As a result, organizations have found themselves in the position of managing multiple point appliances, which decreases efficiency and increases cost of ownership. McAfee has released Total Protection for Network to help organizations consolidate all their network security needs in one comprehensive suite to conduct business more quickly and efficiently. 

"Our customers tell us they are frustrated with managing so many point products, while the costs of doing so continues to mount," said Christopher Bolin, chief technology officer for McAfee. "With McAfee Total Protection for Network, we are introducing a single solution that protects the data-and everything else that transits over a company's network-ending appliance fatigue. By reducing the number of appliances in their environments, organizations save money and contribute to more environmentally friendly computing practices."
