This white paper describes how clusters of McAfee Network Security Platform sensors can some help load balance traffic to meet the throughput requirements of larger enterprises.
The SANS Institute explores trends in the security of cloud computing based on their 2017 survey of IT professionals.
Cloud Adoption Grows. Concerns Remain.
In August 2016, McAfee surveyed over 2,000 professionals for its annual Cloud Security research study. The 2,009 respondents were drawn from third-party database to represent a diverse set of countries, industries, and organization sizes. After screening out those who were not using cloud services or not directly involved in decision making for cloud security initiatives, 1,400 senior technical professionals completed the study. This executive summary of the full cloud security report provides a brief overview of key findings, conclusions and recommendations.
Enterprises have evolved their data centers to include private clouds, and are now challenged to secure these environments. Breaches in these highly virtualized environments are difficult to detect and can go unnoticed far too long. Advanced analysis capabilities are needed to effectively improve detection of sophisticated advanced attacks within a private cloud. This technical whitepaper explains how.
These suggested questions should help in your process of identifying, evaluating, selecting, and working with CSPs.
We surveyed over 2,000 professionals for our annual cloud security research study. The results in this report offer a detailed understanding of the current state of cloud adoption and security.
As diverse as your cloud environment may be, if you are involved in overseeing or deploying cloud services at your organization, there is one inviolable truism you must keep in mind at all times: No matter how simple or complex your cloud deployments, you can never allow the security of your data or applications to be compromised in any way.
Here are three recommendations for incorporating security into the planning of an SDDC.
Many organizations do not realize that the virtual networks that are part of Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads need to be protected. McAfee understands the complexity of the public cloud and has designed a security architecture specifically for AWS.
Security and risk management leaders should leverage user and entity behavior analytics to improve their organization's threat detection capabilities across a variety of use cases.
Like most global enterprises, your modern hybrid data center uses private and public cloud computing to deliver applications and workloads. This new infrastructure requires a protection strategy different from traditional server security. Elastic, cloud-native applications have unique security needs. Legacy on-premises security agents are not designed to perform at cloud scale and may have licensing models that are incompatible with elastic cloud workloads. Gartner provides their key findings and recommendations to security and risk management leaders for cloud workload protection platforms, including the use of risk-based models to prioritize evaluation criteria.
Aberdeen Group discusses the move to the public cloud and the security shared responsibility model that leverages the strengths of both the public cloud service providers (architecture and infrastructure at scale) and enterprises (applications and data) to provide the enterprise with stronger capabilities than could be achieved going at it alone.
Whether you’ve moved to the cloud or are on your way, you can build in the security you need.
With easily usable private clouds designed to run business-critical enterprise applications, leading organizations benefit from a simple and pain-free path to a reliable and optimized platform for their business infrastructure. This Aberdeen Research whitepaper shows you the way.
As hybrid clouds become increasingly complex, securing these complicated environments requires both an understanding of what makes them different and the use of solutions designed for the job. This white paper from ESG explores best practice for adopting the hybrid cloud.
This e-book provides an overview of private cloud models, the underlying technologies that enable successful deployments and the security challenges—and benefits—of deploying a private cloud. Finally, it discusses security technologies and approaches that maximize protection, minimize risk and leverage the private cloud to drive innovation.
Enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud, and faced with some new security challenges.
