Today, most enterprises are in the midst of a major shift as the boundaries between physical, virtual, and public and private clouds are blurring. As organizations transform and optimize their server infrastructure, they face the reality that next-generation data centers require ever-evolving solutions to keep their systems secure.
Data centers are the nerve center of an organization, which makes their security a top priority for IT directors and CISOs. McAfee helps IT leaders as they are faced with managing complex security for their next-generation data center by delivering comprehensive server security solutions that discover workloads, protect servers, and expand into the cloud.
When customers engage with McAfee, we do more than provide our security expertise, end-to-end products, and open management platform. We also provide a seamlessly integrated approach to building deep security and efficient compliance practices around business-critical servers, whether they exist in physical or virtual environments, on-premises or in the cloud — without hampering performance. McAfee has developed a collection of data center security solutions managed centrally from McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) to provide a holistic, yet modular security infrastructure for today’s complex data centers.
McAfee Server Security Suite Essentials provides foundational server security protection and management for physical, virtual, and cloud deployments, enabling customers to discover workloads for complete security visibility, protect workloads with desired security policies, and expand workloads into the cloud with automatic provisioning of security policies. This suite includes McAfee Data Center Connectors to discover and manage physical servers, hypervisors, and virtual machines in VMware vSphere, Amazon Web Services, OpenStack, and Microsoft Azure.
McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced delivers the most comprehensive server protection and management for physical, virtual, and cloud deployments, enabling customers to discover workloads for complete security visibility, protect workloads with desired security policies, expand workloads into the cloud with automatic provisioning of security policies, and ensure regulatory compliance. It includes McAfee Data Center Connectors and all features of McAfee Server Security Suite Essentials, along with additional advanced server security, including whitelisting to protect against zero-day threats, change control to meet regulatory requirements, and McAfee Agentless Firewall for complete visibility into all virtual networks.
McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite delivers comprehensive cloud security to help extend and manage security policies for servers in the public cloud. It delivers wider visibility into server instances in the public cloud, deploys comprehensive protection with a powerful combination of blacklisting and whitelisting technologies, and dynamically manages your cloud computing environment in concert with desktop, mobile, and physical servers with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator software.
In standard virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments, traditional endpoint security software is installed within each guest, which can impact the performance improvements offered by virtualization. McAfee Security Suite for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure provides a scalable security solution specifically designed for these new systems, to manage security for VDI throughout an organization.
McAfee's database security solution offers real-time, reliable protection for business-critical databases, and requires no architecture changes, costly hardware, or database downtime. Organizations can gain complete visibility into their overall database landscape and security posture, fully align their security policy administration practices, and efficiently maintain regulatory compliance.
Data centers require multilayered security to protect against a rapidly evolving threat landscape, maintain compliance, and operate efficiently. These complementary solutions expand the scope of your protection, adding security for email servers, storage, and Microsoft SharePoint.
