McAfee, Inc. unveils next generation firewall solutions.
In recent years, organizations have faced the burden of dramatically increasing firewall management costs, as legacy technology has struggled to keep up with the volume of today's threats and the changing application environments. Legacy firewalls depend on unwieldy technical rules that do not map to real business requirements and are too difficult for meeting audit, control and compliance requirements.
Today, McAfee Firewall Enterprise protects more than 15,000 customers worldwide including thousands of government agencies, Fortune 500 organizations, and seven of the top ten financial institutions. By deploying these next generation capabilities, customers will lower ongoing management costs.
"Last generation firewalls are simply too hard and expensive to manage, and in reality, don't effectively enforce relevant business policies," said Dan Ryan, executive vice president and general manager of the Network Security business unit at McAfee. "Mobile users, modern Web-based applications and ever more sophisticated cyber criminals have combined with the economic environment to create the perfect storm. With this release, we're delivering next generation firewall capabilities that improve network security while lowering compliance and operational costs in both physical and virtual network security environments."
