McAfee last week announced several new innovations that expand machine learning and automation capabilities to strengthen human-machine teams. McAfee also announced support of OpenDXL.com, a new, independent collaboration portal that offers forums, free apps and more, giving OpenDXL users easy access to ideas and resources available for application integrations. These new advances build upon the company’s commitment to innovation, collaboration, and trust, bringing McAfee’s mantra ‘Together is Power’ to life.
“Today’s security teams are facing 244 new cyber threats every minute, amid a serious talent shortage. Siloed security, without automation, managed by overwhelmed teams is not a sustainable defense strategy,” said Raja Patel, Vice President, and General Manager, Corporate Security Products, McAfee. “Expanded machine learning and integrated analytics are part of McAfee’s vision for a fundamental shift in the way humans and machines work together to secure our digital world. By aligning the strengths of humans and machines, organizations elevate their operational maturity to better defend against the cyber threats we face today—and tomorrow.”
Machine Learning and Automation
McAfee technology seeks to improve the way humans and machines work together to protect the digital enterprise, through the implementation of an intelligent security platform, that takes advantage of powerful new technologies, such as machine learning and automation.

The newly released McAfee® ATD v4.0 software introduces an innovative deep learning technique to enhance detection and expands advanced analysis capabilities within email attachments, resulting in more comprehensive protection across the network as new threat intelligence and reputation updates are shared throughout the ecosystem. New capabilities include:
New enhancements for McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) include integrated, patented countermeasure-aware risk analysis to help security operations teams identify threats and assess the impact of new vulnerabilities, as well as new support for critical SOC use cases.

McAfee’s dynamic endpoint protection collaborates across products, allowing new technology to easily integrate without a complete architecture rebuild, and leverages machine learning to improve detection capabilities. New capability includes:
Continued Commitment to Open Source and Industry Collaboration
McAfee believes that no one person, product or organization can fight cyber crime alone, which is why McAfee announced the OpenDXL initiative in 2016, launching an open industry standard for all developers to increase integration flexibility, simplicity, and opportunity. McAfee has now expanded its commitment to open source through the support of a new, independent open source community, OpenDXL.com. This vibrant, collaborative portal includes:
