MVISION XDR automates security investigation and response processes with actionable threat insights harnessed from deeply integrated cloud data sources




McAfee Corp. (Nasdaq: MCFE), the device to cloud cybersecurity company, today announced significant expansion of its MVISION Extended Detection and Response (XDR) solution by correlating the extensive telemetry of McAfee’s endpoint security solution, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution, and threat intelligence solution powered by MVISION Insights. These integrations protect organizations against the most advanced threats while simplifying security operations with unified control and visibility from device to cloud.



This timing is pivotal, as security operation centers (SOC) are dealing with increasingly sophisticated threat actors targeting remote employees and cloud services using more evasive techniques across expanding digital attack surfaces - making adversaries harder to spot with traditional security controls. A recent survey of IT security professionals by The Enterprise Strategy Group found that the cloud poses the biggest gap for most organizations’ threat detection and response capabilities. Unsurprisingly, according to Ernst & Youngabout six in 10 companies have faced a material or significant incident in the past twelve months, however, only 26 percent of companies say their SOC identified their most significant breach. 



McAfee MVISION XDR is the first proactive, data-aware, and open XDR platform designed to help organizations stop these sophisticated, multi-vector attacks with unified threat detection and response that connects and fuses disparate endpoint, network, and cloud data sources. Starting today, XDR incidents are enriched with actionable threat insights from McAfee's SASE solution, which detects cloud threats that occur within web and SaaS environments. It improves situational awareness, drives better and faster decisions, and elevates the SOC to a new level of efficiency and effectiveness.



MVISION XDR capabilities include:


  • Advanced threat detection: Automatically correlates attack telemetry from multiple data sources including endpoint detection and response (EDR), cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP) and secure web gateway (SWG), and fuses with active threat campaigns to reveal the full picture of an adversary’s work across the entire attack lifecycle.


  • Automated threat management tasks: By combining the latest machine learning techniques with human analysis, MVISION XDR simplifies analyst workflows across complex threat campaigns with AI-guided investigations and MITRE ATT&CK™ mapping to accelerate investigation and move more rapidly to resolution.


  • Proactive threat hunting and optimized response: The integration of MVISION Insights with MVISION Cloud Security Advisor delivers actionable intelligence to security teams through correlated security posture scoring across all vectors - from endpoints to the cloud – that helps them strengthen security hygiene and advance investigations and analysis with critical context on threat groups.
