LAS VEGAS: McAfee has outlined plans to turn its ePolicy Orchestrator IT management console into a real-time monitoring and reporting solution.
Speaking at the company's Focus conference, chief technology officer Michael Fey said that future versions of the platform would be able to analyse and report information on systems and network infrastructure as they occur.
McAfee believes that the shift will allow administrators to diagnose and respond to potential problems immediately, limiting the damage of possible attacks and infections. In doing so, McAfee hopes to change an enterprise security culture which analyses incidents after the fact.
"We have been doing this for so long, we have come to believe historical information is okay," Fey told attendees. "We have to change our security capabilities."
McAfee has long pitched ePolicy Orchestrator as the the backbone of its enterprise security security platforms. The company has offered the platform to connect and monitor its own security tools as well as those offered by partners and competitors.
With the switch to real-time performance, McAfee said it hopes to maintain that relationship with other vendors and offered bundled "best of breed" deployments to its enterprise customers.
In order to do so, however, McAfee believes that the entire industry will need to change its approach to security and development.
"As we are thinking about the future, the solutions today are not prepared for an always on, always connected world," Fey said. "Our thinking is not prepared."
