Users to get advancements in firewall management and hybrid delivery options

McAfee has announced that it has upgraded its enterprise firewall products with next generation capabilities which will help customers to increase network security and lower compliance and operational costs.

“Last generation firewalls are simply too hard and expensive to manage and, in reality, don’t effectively enforce relevant business policies,” says Jayson O’Reilly, regional manager for Africa, McAfee. “Mobile users, modern web-based applications and ever more sophisticated cyber criminals have combined with the economic environment to create the perfect storm. With this release, we’re delivering next generation firewall capabilities that improve network security while lowering compliance and operational costs in both physical and virtual network security environments.”

McAfee Firewall Enterprise, McAfee Firewall Enterprise Control Center and McAfee Firewall Enterprise Profiler feature streamlined management through integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software.

Next generation capabilities include advancements in firewall management, hybrid delivery options and integrated layers of threat protection. With the addition of McAfee Firewall Profiler, McAfee Firewall Enterprise is application and identity aware.

The revised version of Control Center and Firewall Reporter also simplifies management of multiple firewalls and enable more accurate audit and compliance reports. Both Profiler and Control Center now integrate with McAfee ePO software. Firewall Control Center now provides ePO software with firewall health data and reports for each firewall.
