Security software firm McAfee has announced new Data Center Security Suites aimed at enterprise users. McAfee says that the new suites offer combinations of white listing, blacklisting, and virtualization technologies all aimed at protecting servers and virtual desktops.
“Performance and security are key concerns for servers in the physical, virtualized or cloud-based data centers,” said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst, Information Security and Networking at Enterprise Security Group. “The new server security suites from McAfee, based on its application whitelisting, virtualization and blacklisting and AV technologies, provide an enhanced security posture while maintaining the high server performance needs of the data center.”
The four Data Center Security Suites include:
McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server
provides a complete set of blacklisting, whitelisting, and optimized virtualization support capabilities for basic security on servers of all types
McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server–Hypervisor Edition
provides a complete set of blacklisting, whitelisting, and optimized virtualization support capabilities for basic security on servers of all types and is licensed per Hypervisor
McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure
provides comprehensive security for virtual desktop deployments without compromising performance or the user experience
McAfee Database Server Protection
provides data base activity monitoring and vulnerability assessment in a single suite, for all major database servers in the data center
“McAfee is leading the industry with these new solutions for protecting servers in the data center,” said Candace Worley, senior vice president and general manager of endpoint security at McAfee. “The combination of whitelisting, blacklisting and virtualization in a single solution, offers an optimal security posture for protecting servers in the data centers.”
in December of 2010 for Intel to purchase McAfee, which is probably best known for its consumer security software. In September, the company announced a new
venture with Intel that helps protect people on social networks. The software was a collaboration between McAfee and Intel and offered the ability to prevent Facebook friends from copying or manipulating your photos among other things.

I haven't ever used Trend but I do have experience with enterprise level antivirus software from Symantec, McAfee, Forefront and CA. We moved from McAfee to Forefront last year and we have seen a rise in virus infections. Also it's not PCI compliant so next year we are going back to McAfee. I do like the light footprint of Forefront but that's a moot point now. I group McAfee and Symantec in the same boat - not perfect but better than anything else out there. When I started my last job they were using CA. I dropped it ASAP for Symantec. That's from my observations of the last 8 years.

Did You Partake in "Black Friday/Thursday"?
I skipped Thanksgiving to get the Black Thursday deals!
I spent Thanksgiving with friends/family, but I lined up at midnight for the deals!
Skip Thanksgiving? Wait in line? No way, but I'll go out today and see what's left.
I prefer Cyber Monday.
I don't do deal shopping... too much stress, it just isn't worth it.
