(PresseBox) ( SANTA CLARA, Calif, )
McAfee, Inc. (NYSE:MFE), announced that it has extended its agentless malware detection capabilities in McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution to include a weekly top 50 new malware and top 100 most detected malware content feed. As the volume of threats continues to increase, businesses need to know immediately how they are impacted. By leveraging the existing and new malware detection capabilities, customers of McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution are able to mitigate threats before they can do damage.

McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution has been leveraged by thousands of companies as a platform for agentless malware detection. Agentless malware detection augments traditional antivirus technology by providing an additional layer of visibility into assets at risk within the network. In addition to traditional vulnerability detection, it also detects assets already infected or those that may not have been fully remediated.

"The agentless malware detection in McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution provides the first line of defense against infected rogue or unknown assets that connect to the network," said Stuart McClure, senior vice president and general manager of the McAfee Risk and Compliance Business Unit. "We've included hundreds of checks for some of the most prevalent and hardhitting malware such as the recent Operation Aurora and last year's Conficker worm. Extending upon this existing capability, our customers will benefit - at no additional cost - from the two new content streams. Combining the enterprise scale and agentless speed of McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution with the robust and deep malware detection capabilities of the McAfee antivirus signature base we are delivering unprecedented agentless malware detection to the enterprise."

Powered by Global Threat Intelligence from McAfee - realtime, "inthecloud" data collection and intelligence distribution service that correlates and analyzes data from millions of data points across all threat vectors - McAfee Vulnerability Manager solution receives weekly updates that contain that week's top 50 new malware and top 100 most detected malware content packages. This new dynamic content capability assures that customers can scan for the most impactful malware within their network as part of their ongoing vulnerability assessment workflow.
