Today McAfee announces a great opportunity for channel partners with the launch of the McAfee Firewall Enterprise version 8.0 release. This launch addresses a $4.2 billion market, as the traditional firewall has been found lacking due to the influx of web 2.0 applications and malicious threats.
Key features of McAfee’s next generation firewall include integrated network intrusion prevention, application awareness, and full stack visibility to name a few, are now available for customers prepared to embrace web 2.0 applications in the enterprise, without compromising their network’s safety.
General availability for V8 is slated this quarter. Partners selling the McAfee Firewall Enterprise must earn a Network Defense Product authorization. For more information surrounding this exciting launch and associated authorizations, please visit the “Training and Certification” section of the Partner Portal.
