McAfee has updated its risk and compliance offerings, introducing new versions of Vulerability Manager, Risk Adviser and Vulnerability Manager for Databases under the McAfee Risk Management banner.
The tools will integrate with McAfee's ePolicy Orchestrator, the base platform which allows IT managers to control multiple security tools and applications through a central console.
Gary Davis, risk and compliance senior group manager at McAfee, told V3.co.uk that the offerings could be used together to help companies cut costs.
Early tests showed that some businesses were able to dramatically decrease the time and resources spent on management and compliance by prioritising threats and isolating areas of risk, rather than rolling out large-scale patch and update operations, the firm claimed.
"The value proposition behind Risk Adviser is that, if you can use a single pane of glass to see where the vulnerabilities exist in your assets, and what countermeasure can be employed across the board, you can save money and apply the right amount of security where you need it," Davis said.
The Risk Management platform will also solve what McAfee sees as a shift by enterprises away from strictly meeting compliance standards to gaining a broader understanding of where data might be vulnerable to loss or disclosure.
"The discussion is changing from compliance," explained McAfee senior director of risk and compliance Martin Ward.
"Chief information security officers are saying: 'No, what I'm really doing is managing risk, and I have to do compliance as a by-product.'"
