New innovations in MVISION cloud platform for application infrastructure

McAfee, the device-to-cloud cyber security company, announced new innovations to its MVISION cloud platform to help organizations protect the entire infrastructure and application stack of their cloud-native applications. RSA attendees can learn more about MVISION cloud native infrastructure security at McAfee booth #N-5745 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

According to research from Gartner, Inc., the worldwide public cloud service market will reach $263 billion USD in 2020, growing 16.4 percent over 2019 (17 percent in constant currency). The public cloud is growing twice as fast as any other cloud, fueled by the development on new cloud native applications that allow enterprises to transform their business.

Available now, MVISION Cloud Native Infrastructure Security includes Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) and Container Security technologies integrated into one security management experience. Together, these solutions offer a broad set of capabilities to secure multi-cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)/Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and hybrid cloud environments.

McAfee’s Cloud Native Infrastructure Security provides a unified solution to:
Safeguard against configuration drift and vulnerabilities across all forms of cloud-native workloads – virtual machines, containers and serverless.

Preemptively improve compliance using McAfee’s “shift left” capabilities to run security audits in the DevOps pipeline and provide security incident data directly back to development teams.

Protect sensitive data stored within applications running on IaaS/PaaS environments using the same data protection and threat protection policies in MVISION Cloud.

“In the quest to accelerate business processes, organizations are increasingly encouraging developers to leverage the power of IaaS/PaaS environments,” said Rajiv Gupta, senior vice president, Cloud Security, McAfee. “For this, they need application and infrastructure stacks running in these environments to be secure. McAfee Cloud Native Infrastructure Security comprehensively addresses these needs from configuration to runtime, relentlessly protecting against vulnerabilities and configuration drift and preemptively addressing compliance through frictionless integration into the DevOps pipeline.”

“MVISION Cloud’s “shift-left” approach will allow companies to improve compliance and secure container workloads by running security audits in the DevOps pipeline and delivering that data directly back to development teams,” said Mike Reavey, chief information security officer, Electronic Arts. “This will speed up application delivery while enhancing the governance, compliance and security of container workloads. It is exciting to see the MVISION Cloud platform adopting this approach.”
