To counter advanced persistent threats and stealth attacks McAfee has unveiled a new technology named McAfee DeepSAFE. This technology is co-developed by McAfee and Intel. It allows McAfee to develop hardware-assisted security products to take advantage of a “deeper” security footprint. The technology sits below the OS providing a vantage point that helps fundamentally change the security infrastructure.

DeepSAFE enables innovative new protection technologies including proactively detecting and preventing stealthy advanced persistent threats (APTs) and malware. “McAfee DeepSAFE uses hardware features already in the Intel processors to provide security beyond the OS. From this unique vantage point, DeepSAFE can apply new techniques to deliver a whole new generation of protection in real time to prevent malicious activity and not just detect infections,” says Todd Gebhart, Co-President, McAfee. This technology will be in products launched during the last quarter of 2011 onwards.
