BDNA Discover for McAfee ePO Solution

  • The BDNA solution provides an independent compliance check with security policies on the presence and currency of McAfee security software installed on networked computers in medium to large enterprises.
  • As an agentless solution, BDNA’s Discover does not need to be installed on endpoints in order to determine whether McAfee security software is installed and running.
  • The result of this is that customers are able to discover any coverage gaps, enterprise-wide, in hours, not days or weeks.
  • The joint solution helps close potential security flaws by providing accurate and immediate reporting on the security status of all the devices connected to the enterprise network.
  • This level of visibility enables IT security managers to quickly identify unprotected devices and bring them into compliance with enterprise security policies.

Walker White, BDNA CTO said: “The webcast is going to be a no-spin discussion of how BDNA Discover supports McAfee ePO in keeping the IT security storm windows sealed tight against viruses, worms, and other intrusions. Ed Barry will contribute his deep knowledge of McAfee ePO and also discuss how our two companies are jointly marketing and supporting the solution.”
