When enterprises deploy security products, they're often flying blind, unsure if they’re underprotected or overprotected, and struggling to balance business objectives and productivity with the right amount of security. McAfee Risk Advisor takes the guesswork out of protecting critical assets by proactively correlating a threat feed with vulnerability and countermeasure information to pinpoint at-risk critical assets that require immediate attention. Risk Advisor helps determine what countermeasures you need, and when you need them, enabling businesses to defend against the very real threats faced daily, including malicious hackers, viral malware, and other emerging dangers.
Improved visibility into risk posture — Risk Advisor provides an “at-a-glance” view of the risks facing an enterprise and pinpoints areas that need attention. From Risk Advisor's global risk dashboards, you can quickly drill down to get granular details of a threat and how it relates to specific assets.
Consolidated threat feed viewer — Get updated information about new and current threats from millions of collection points, delivered by our renowned research organization, McAfee Labs. In addition to threat descriptions and analyses, the threat feed supplies recommended remediation, links to threat discussion groups and notices, various risk-scoring methods, a list of applications impacted, and insight into how threats affect regulatory mandates. Risk Advisor maps the threat feed to specific McAfee countermeasures that are deployed (or should be deployed) to ensure an optimized security posture. Ultimately, Risk Advisor provides a clear ROI, enabling you to focus your priorities.
