Symphony Technology Group (STG) has completed its split of McAfee Enterprise into two organizations with the launch of Skyhigh Security.

Skyhigh Security includes McAfee Enterprise security service edge (SSE) portfolio. It offers cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), zero trust network access (ZTNA), cloud data loss prevention (DLP), remote browser isolation technology, cloud firewall and cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP).

The rest of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye formed Trellix, a $2 billion cybersecurity titan. STG acquired McAfee Enterprise and FireEye last year.

The new portfolio company was created to satisfy the growing cloud security requirements for large and small organizations. Its data-aware SSE provides security that follows the data and users wherever they are.

McAfee originally acquired Skyhigh Networks in early 2018. It was a leading provider of CASB technology.

Dedicated Cloud Security Company

“Skyhigh Security has created a comprehensive security platform to secure both data access and data use via unified policies and data awareness,” he said. “Organizations can now have complete visibility and control, and seamlessly monitor and mitigate security risks — achieving lower associated costs, driving greater efficiencies and keeping pace with the speed of innovation.”

William Chisholm is STG‘s managing partner.

“Skyhigh Security has emerged as a dedicated cloud security company that is laser-focused on propelling businesses forward with a comprehensive and converged approach to data security,” he said. “We’re committed to investing in this business, which is in one of the most important markets in security, SSE.”
