What we do
At McAfee Advanced Threat Research (McAfee ATR), our goal is to identify and illuminate a broad spectrum of threats in today's complex landscape. McAfee ATR researchers are responsible for research in nearly every vertical of threat, including those targeting banking, retail, medical, and other industries. We have experts in vulnerability and threat research who find and report critical vulnerabilities in popular hardware and software and who use a global network of endpoints to track malware campaigns as well as the nation-states and malicious actors behind them. Our red team incorporate and build upon the techniques, tactics and procedures (TTPs) uncovered by our researchers while performing engagements where the robustness of both our products and infrastructure are continuously being tested. These findings are fed back into the solutions that ultimately power McAfee's products.
