McAfee Network Security Manager
McAfee Network Security Manager is an advanced solution for up to six IPS sensors, McAfee Network Access Control appliances, or McAfee Network Threat Behavior Analysis appliances deployed in small and mid-sized networks and enterprise branch offices.
McAfee Network Security Manager features simple, granular security policy management. Easyto- use, preconfigured policies put you immediately in charge with preset blocking. You can define and edit custom signatures, and use the virtual IPS to set individual policies for different network segments and hosts. Global policy editing makes it
easy to set consistent policies across devices. For audits and management reviews, you can define custom graphical reports for automatic scheduling and distribution. Integration with the McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) management platform helps you unify risk management and policy compliance, enabling you
to respond quickly to threats. Through the McAfee ePO platform, McAfee Network Security Manager can directly retrieve system information such as status and configuration to assist with resolution.
Real-Time Control of Real-Time Data
A single McAfee Network Security Manager appliance delivers centralized, web-based
management and unrivaled ease of use. The state-of-the-art console and enhanced graphical user interface put you in control of real-time data. You can easily manage, configure, and monitor all IPS appliances as well as McAfee Network Access Control appliances and McAfee Network Threat Behavior Analysis appliances. The intuitive web-based management interface can handle any situation—from single devices up to widely distributed, mission-critical deployments. It can also be deployed as a virtual instance within ESX servers.
Balance Local Control with Central Visibility
Each local Network Security Manager retains direct management of its local IPS sensors and local alerts. When individual alerts must be investigated, a simple right-click instantly reveals rich event details. If necessary, the Network Security Central Manager operator can remotely manage and mitigate events in order to document compliance with required processes or support forensics.
