McAfee Vulnerability Manager Earns Top Honors From Gartner Group For The Third Year Running

By on Dec 11, 2013

Threats and vulnerabilities are a way of life for IT admins. With the continued rise of computer and network attacks, the threat of a critical attack is virtually constant. With complex software it is all but guaranteed that there will be vulnerabilities for attackers exploit. And the sheer volume of attack vectors for attackers to use makes it nearly impossible for security teams to know where to focus.
It also doesn’t help that regulatory standards are being spit out faster than organizations handle, forcing them to fight their way into compliance piece by piece. This heightens the risk of failed audits and punitive financial penalties — it’s an unacceptable and unsustainable solution.

But there is a cure for what ails you, and it’s called McAfee Vulnerability Manager.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager provides IT admins with a powerful and effective tool for identifying and remediating vulnerable systems, and managing risk to protect the network. And, for the third year in a row, Gartner MarketScope — the premier service assessment agency — rated McAfee Vulnerability Manager a strong positive.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager enables an organization to identify vulnerabilities and policy violations and prioritize them based on the risk they represent within its unique infrastructure. McAfee Vulnerability Manager also helps IT departments monitor and maintain compliance with regulatory and industry security requirements. Our ability to integrate with other McAfee technologies netted us high marks from Gartner — making us confident that we can supply you the tools you need to secure your networks.

When Volvo Group, which operates in over 180 countries, employs nearly 100,000 individuals, and has production facilities in 19 countries, needed a global security scanning solution, they turned to McAfee. Volvo Group needed a solution allowing its 12 global IT security employees to constantly scan for attacks, vulnerabilities, new assets, and compliance — all while keeping its data inside the organization.

“What put McAfee Vulnerability Manager over the top was the ability it gave us to write custom scans and the fact that we could keep our data inside the organization,” said Jonas Björklund, Volvo Group’s Vulnerability Control Manager.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager is the strongest security solution available on the market today. It’s not just us saying that, it’s Gartner’s strong positive rating and Volvo Group’s satisfaction.
