Introduction McAfee® Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) server provides context-aware adaptive security for your enterprise environment. The challenge in today's enterprise environment is the growing number of devices and systems and their inability to communicate security information with each other. These devices and systems include the cloud, BYOD, managed nodes, servers, and network appliances. Until now, they have acted independently and were not intelligently managed as a whole. Threat Intelligence Exchange server is changing that. It quickly analyzes files and content from several sources in your environment and makes informed security decisions. These decisions are based on a file's security reputation and your own criteria.
