Protect your private cloud with an integrated approach to security

The march toward the cloud continues at a rapid pace, but is your security keeping up? Built to run and scale dynamic workloads on fully virtualized, software-defined infrastructure, enterprise private cloud deployments create security challenges that traditional static security solutions were never designed to address.

In the face of growing your enterprise private cloud footprint, new challenges emerge. While moving to a cloud environment can help your organization do more and at a faster pace, it can also mean you have less visibility and control over your sensitive data, and expose you to attacks that exploit traffic flowing in an east-west direction between virtual machines.

McAfee can help you integrate critical security controls into your private cloud, ensuring your security technology supports a software-defined data center—transforming your private cloud into a finely tuned, secure environment.

Achieving your security and compliance goals for the private cloud


Extend visibility to all private cloud workloads

Discover all workloads in private cloud deployments. Our Cloud Workload Discovery helps you understand where to look, providing clear visibility into all private cloud workloads and activity.


Maintain agility

The flexibility of an elastic compute environment means you can scale data center capacity up or down as needed. Ensure your security adapts just as fast without slowing down applications, compute time, or cloud-based services.


Manage security policies efficiently

Tap advanced policy management and automation to quickly extend your security controls to the private cloud. Integration to third-party deployment automation tools like Chef and Puppet enable security at the speed of DevOps.


Prove compliance

Demonstrate that you have effective security in place, meeting regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, and various country and industry requirements for protecting data. Architecting security into your deployment helps achieve this outcome.
