RSA CONFERENCE – McAfee today
announced a technology partnership with Tanium, Inc. to provide enhanced
McAfee Real Time technology. McAfee Real Time Command enriches security
and systems management with instant visibility into system data and
immediate intervention ability. This product empowers administrators to
manage incident responses, outbreaks, current patching levels, security
policies, and software compliance proactively. Enterprises today need
up-to-the-second information to identify and resolve security issues
within minutes versus days – the McAfee/Tanium partnership is the only
product that fulfills that need at enterprise scale.
Other systems management tools are unable to provide the time-sensitive
data enterprises need in order to efficiently prevent and respond to
threats and outages. According to the 2013 Verizon Data Breach Report,
69 percent of breaches went from initial compromise to data exfiltration
within hours. Conversely, over a third of breaches took weeks to months
resolve.1 To minimize the damage of attacks and protect the
business, it is essential that security analysts are able to quickly
identify attacks, determine the root cause and remediate the threat.
McAfee Real Time Command delivers an extensible enterprise platform for
deep insight into the critical endpoint data to identify threats,
including information about running processes, hashes of files,
established network connections, user activity, configuration
information, and more as well as the ability to instantly take action in
“Time is everything when it comes to stopping threats,” said Orion
Hindawi, chief technology officer at Tanium. “By the time the problem is
discovered, the damage has been done, and threats have spread throughout
the environment. Together with McAfee, we’re helping businesses rapidly
expose and stop these threats before they infiltrate the environment.
We’re helping them pivot from being the hunted to being the hunter.”
McAfee Real Time Command Capabilities:
Instant querying: Query every endpoint in your environment and
get answers back within seconds. The ability to gather data quickly is
essential when an organization is confronted with outages, viruses, or
zero-day vulnerabilities. McAfee Real Time Command empowers
organizations to both detect and respond to incidents instantly.
Instant actions: The instant querying capability enables
enterprises to identify and diagnose problems as they occur, but
organizations also need the ability to take action at light speed.
McAfee Real Time Command delivers immediate action so IT
administrators can make changes across an entire network within
Plain English: McAfee Real Time Command gives users the ability
to ask questions in plain English, instead of having to learn a
complex scripting language. IT administrators can simply ask questions
and get answers back in seconds.
Enterprise ready: McAfee Real Time Command includes features
critical to enterprise security and scalability, including FIPS-ready
cryptography, rigorous management rights, large-scale support for
administrators and managed assets.
Simple infrastructure: Based on its innovative network
topology, McAfee Real Time Command uses a single server to manage
globally distributed networks and large organizations, simplifying
deployment and reducing costs.
"IT professionals know that seconds can mean the difference between a
successful attack and a blocked one,” said Ryan Allphin, senior vice
president and general manager of the security management business unit
at McAfee. “By utilizing the Tanium technology we’re able to eliminate
costly manual effort and provide immediate data collection and action
capabilities, with McAfee Real Time Command. This allows users to focus
on what data to collect and why it is important, by providing answers
within seconds. This provides huge benefits to the security and
efficiency of an organization.”
The McAfee Real Time Command solution is another key element of the
McAfee Security Connected platform of integrated, intelligent and
connected security solutions that are needed in the battle against

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
