McAfee, the cybersecurity company, has announced that McAfee MVISION Cloud has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security competency status and received AWS Well-Architected designation for its Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) technology.
This makes McAfee the first CASB technology vendor to achieve the competency.
Enterprise organizations are accelerating business through cloud adoption. However, securing those cloud environments means upholding their commitment to the industry-accepted Shared Responsibility Model for security—making it necessary to implement cloud security solutions that help them achieve this goal.
McAfee’s market-leading CASB technology builds on AWS’s existing security capabilities by providing a uniform approach to visibility and response to threats, compliance status, configuration management and drift, and sensitive data protection through comprehensive and consistent policies. McAfee MVISION Cloud is a single pane of glass for all IaaS, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) resources for customers, further enabling their business transformation initiatives.
“McAfee MVISION Cloud delivers a comprehensive solution to efficiently monitor, prioritize, and respond to security events so customers can fulfill their shared responsibility for security on AWS,” said Rajiv Gupta, senior vice president, Cloud Security Business Unit, McAfee. “We are proud to achieve AWS Security Competency status for our frictionless, cloud-native solution for organizations to consistently protect their data and defend against threats in the cloud.”
“By achieving AWS Security Competency status and the AWS Well-Architected designation, McAfee MVISION Cloud has demonstrated its ability to work with our top IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS vendors,” said Dan Meacham, vice president, Security and Operations at Legendary Entertainment. “Achieving AWS Security Competency status further enhances our trust in McAfee to continue to be a market leader in helping organizations such as ours to advance our cloud-enabled business objectives.”
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
