McAfee Endpoint Security for Microsoft Azure Environments


Your Microsoft Azure environment can quickly scale up or down to match demand. You need an endpoint security solution that is just as nimble and scalable, but that also protects your data with the same strength your traditional endpoints require. That’s why we’ve integrated McAfee Endpoint Security with the Azure PowerShell platform to make it easy to deploy, configure, and manage in your Microsoft Azure environment. It’s an easy way to take advantage of the full benefits of Microsoft Azure without sacrificing your security requirements.

How it Works

Using Microsoft’s integrated security extensions, you can quickly add security controls such as threat protection, web security, messaging security, and data protection to your virtual machines. And, because McAfee Endpoint Security can be deployed, provisioned, and managed through the Azure PowerShell platform, it is easy to reclaim and reapply your licenses to new machines as your workload changes.

Deploying protection is easy using the Microsoft Azure console and McAfee Endpoint Protection Manager. Once deployed, the machine will appear automatically in Endpoint Protection Manager and you can apply policies using McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO).
