McAfee Announces Upgrades to Cloud Security Platform

Dedicated security technology company and Intel (NADAQ: INTC) subsidiary McAfee announced upgrades to its Cloud Security Platform, which, according to McAfee, permits companies to extend their security and policies into the cloud by securing the “three primary channels” of traffic — e-mail, web and identity.

The Cloud Security Platform upgrades are focused on security for cloud-based interactions via integration between applications, as well as policy support and web protection for mobile employees. The platform works in conjunction with McAfee Global Threat Intelligence to correlate data and provide real-time protection.

“Interest in cloud computing continues to grow — customers need to know that they can adopt the cloud and rely on the cloud for the majority of their enterprise communications safely and securely,” said Pat Calhoun, SVP & GM, Network Security for McAfee, in a prepared statement. “The McAfee Cloud Security Platform offers a comprehensive solution so organizations can confidently connect to the Cloud.”

Upgrades to the McAfee Cloud Security Platform include:

  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP): Integrated DLP capabilities are now available in McAfee Email Protection and McAfee Web Gateway;

  • Web Reporting for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator: Fully integrated into McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform, McAfee Content Security Reporter provides web reporting capabilities. Web reporting through McAfee ePO software provides greater visibility into security protections and incidents across enterprise IT;

  • Hybrid Web Protection Deployment Support: Unified policy across on-premise and SaaS deployments from a single console simplifies management and ensures consistent policy enforcement for all web traffic;

  • Web Protection for Mobile Workers: McAfee Client Proxy redirects web traffic from off-network user laptops to McAfee Web Protection, ensuring security policy enforcement regardless of location;

  • Web Gateway: Customers can query and apply data from external sources to Web Gateway policies for greater web access control.
