VMworld, San Francisco/Singapore (Aug. 27, 2013) – McAfee today announced a new version of its data center security solution that addresses enterprises’ growing need to leverage the scalability and cost savings of running workloads in public clouds like Amazon Web Services. When enterprises move workloads to a public cloud, they want to know their data is protected.
The McAfee Data Center Server Security Suite for Server provides complete visibility to all workloads in hybrid data centers so enterprises can securely expand into any cloud environment. This added flexibility gives organizations elastic security that is auto-deployed when new virtual devices are provisioned either on-premise or in the public cloud.
The new McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server allows organizations to:
- Discover all workloads including those from VMware’s vCenter and Amazon Web Services to provide the security administrator with complete visibility of the security status.
- Protect every physical and virtual machine in the hybrid data center with fine-grained policy management and data center trust attestation with ease-of-use manageability with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.
- Expand compute capacity securely into the private and public cloud and ensure identical security posture between on-premise and cloud-based machines.
McAfee Data Center security optimizes security, flexibility and manageability of virtual environments with its MOVE AV functionality, finally providing a simplified security solution for companies investing in virtualization for data centers, applications and desktops.
“The McAfee MOVE AntiVirus solution has provided us with an excellent resolution for our complex IT infrastructure which contains dozens of assorted operating systems in use,” said Rick Snyder, Endpoint Security Manager at Boston Scientific. “Our organization handles sensitive data from customers, vendors, business partners and our own internal activities. Maximizing performance, while continuing protection across multiple internal entities, is a high priority for our IT department, as is providing reporting on its effectiveness. McAfee MOVE has been integral in achieving these simultaneous goals by giving us the ability to offload all scanning of data into a gateway virtual appliance. This streamlined and efficient approach saves resources and maintains our security posture.”
Customers now have complete visibility to all workloads on-premise and in the cloud, which then enables them to secure all important workloads. With the ability to expand their compute resources into the public cloud while also securing these workloads, customers can now maintain their security posture even in the public cloud.
“Enterprises must stay compliant and meet government regulations and that is a typical barrier for organizations who want to move workloads into the cloud,” said Rishi Bhargava, vice president of data center security at McAfee. “With McAfee’s latest Data Center Server Security Suite and its elastic security, enterprises are now empowered to do just that. McAfee provides comprehensive security from servers to networking to storage.”
