The McAfee Cloud Security Platform provides a framework that allows organizations to extend their security and policy enforcement into the cloud by securing the three primary channels of traffic – email, web and identity – delivering a secure and trusted bridge between the enterprise and the cloud.
The challenge for cloud-adoption in the enterprise is not only to secure data that resides or travels through the cloud and prevent sensitive data from leaking, but also to protect their organization, their remote offices and their mobile workers from being attacked by cybercriminals who utilize the cloud and new technologies – mobile apps and cloud APIs for example – as new in-roads to unleash malware and conduct targeted attacks on organizations.
The updates to the McAfee Cloud Security Platform focus on enhanced security for cloud-based interactions through continued integration between the products, innovative context-based policy support and web protection for mobile workers.
In conjunction with McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, McAfee Cloud Security Platform provides real time protection and correlates data across all threat vectors—file, web, email and network, thus protecting customers before attacks occur.
New Updates to the McAfee Cloud Security Platform Include:
- Integration: Protection and simplified management.
- Web Protection for mobile workers: McAfee Client Proxy simplifies authentication and redirection of web traffic from off-network user laptops to a McAfee Web Protection solution – either McAfee SaaS Web Protection or McAfee Web Gateway – ensuring security policy enforcement regardless of location.
- Context- aware policy management.
