McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) provides businesses with real-time security and protection. McAfee ESM, a security information and event management (SIEM) solution, was designed for today’s problems, combining cost-effectiveness, intelligence and speed into a solution that leverages SIEM technology in an intelligent and effective manner.

There are a variety of ways that McAfee ESM stands above the competition, but here are four of the best examples:

  • Unlike legacy SIEM solutions, McAfee ESM is built for high-volume, high-traffic situations, with a database built for speed acting at its foundation. This allows all information to be collected and processed in real-time.
  • McAfee ESM goes well beyond simple compliance reporting, offering enterprises true network security through speed, scale and rich context. That context can deliver detailed actionable information about malicious attacks from both external and internal sources to company security teams.
  • ESM integrates with McAfee’s ePolicy Orchestrator, McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, and McAfee Risk Advisor into one manageable system. With these solutions working together, McAfee ESM can offer detailed situational awareness and analysis.
  • That analysis addresses one of the most difficult challenges faced by SIEMs today: identifying an attack, like an advanced persistent threat, and determining its risk before a significant attack occurs. By combining global and local security and network usage data, security teams can also learn how an attack came into the company’s environment, what data was accessed, and whether or not that data has been exposed.

It’s thanks to these advanced features – features which provide real-time security intelligence – that McAfee ESM continues to be placed in the Leaders Quadrant for Security Information in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant.
