Safe in the cloud: McAfee launches cloud security platform

McAfee offers modules to help secure email, web and identity traffic between the office and the cloud.

cloud computing

McAfee has released a new security platform which secures all content and data traffic moving between an organisation and the cloud.

The Cloud Security Platform is designed to secure all inbound and outbound email, web and identity traffic through integrated modular solutions.

While the product is one platform, it is broken into several modules, including:

Web security protection for incoming and outgoing web traffic through proactive reputation and intent-based protection.

Mobile security web traffic generated by smart phones and tablets can be directed through the McAfee Web Gateway using standard device management.

Cloud access control access control for cloud applications using enterprise identities.

Email security integrates comprehensive inbound threat protection with outbound data loss prevention.

Web services security offloads application-level API security, data transformation, REST to SOAP mediation and identity token exchange to a high speed gateway at the network edge or in the cloud.

"Once you move data or applications to the cloud, you essentially lose most if not all of your security visibility, which most organisations find unacceptable," said Marc Olesen, senior vice president and general manager of content and cloud security at McAfee.

"By securing the data and traffic before it travels to or through the cloud, we help businesses extend their security practices and policies into the cloud."
