McAfee named Leader in Magic Quadrant an eighth time

13 Dec 18

McAfee, the device to cloud cybersecurity company, has been named a Leader in the “Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management” for the eighth consecutive year.

“We are proud to be recognised for the eighth consecutive year by Gartner and believe it marks our exceptional performance in enabling effective cybersecurity operations,” says McAfee general manager of corporate products vice president Raja Pate.

“Investing in solutions for the security operations centre (SOC) is a key part of McAfee’s strategy to offer customers the most advanced and robust control points of a modern cybersecurity architecture - device and cloud - with actionable threat intelligence, analytics and orchestration enabled by an open ecosystem.”

According to Gartner, “the SIEM Leaders quadrant is composed of vendors that provide products that are a strong functional match to general market requirements, and have been the most successful in building an installed base and revenue stream within the SIEM market. Leaders also have a relatively high viability rating (due to SIEM revenue or SIEM revenue in combination with revenue from other sources).

“In addition to providing technology that is a good match to current customer requirements, Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for emerging and anticipated requirements. They typically have relatively high market share and/or strong revenue growth, and have demonstrated positive customer feedback for effective SIEM capabilities and related service and support.”

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager provides threat and compliance management to help analysts prioritise, investigate, and respond to threats.

It uses a big data architecture optimised for scalability, performance, faster search and collaboration.

McCafee says that this architecture, combined with its other products including Behavioral Analytics, Investigator, Advanced Threat Defense, and Active Response, helps security operations teams manage their security infrastructure, use automation, improve detection, streamline workflows and enable human-machine teaming to improve response time and overall security outcomes.
