I saw this afternoon as I logged into my Control Center the announcements that Profiler and Firewall Reporter are being discontinued with an end-of-sale date of yesterday and an EOL date of 23 Jan 2013. Are there any products replacing these?
Thank you for your question. While nothing has officially been announced, I am sure you saw the recent acqusition of Nitro Security by McAfee (http://www.nitrosecurity.com/). Nitro provides a Gartner Leader's qudrant SEIM solution. We are working to ensure full support of McAfee Products, including the Firewall and will leverage Nitro for reporting across McAfee and across your network.
Like a partner i think, Profiler and reporter is a great tool in competence displacement terms, and must be replaced with Nitro integrated in my license as my actual reporter/profiler. Is not a good idea to say to actual MFE customers, the need to buy a new license of Nitro.
