Modern hybrid data centers use private and public cloud computing to deliver applications and workloads. See Gartner’s key findings and recommendations for cloud workload protection platforms.
Security in the cloud means adapting to a software-defined, continuous-delivery model of deployment that matches the ephemeral nature of cloud resources.
Explore the use cases below to discover how to secure AWS, Azure, and VMware private clouds together. Read Gartner’s perspective to learn more about each use case.
What does shared responsibility mean?
Review what security responsibilities you have based on the type of cloud service you use.
Cloud security for every environment
Adopting cloud services can accelerate your business, but moving data and applications to the cloud—whether it’s public cloud, hybrid cloud, or private cloud—also increases your potential exposure to threats.
In the public cloud, data security is a requirement at a minimum, and in the case of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), securing your applications, operating systems, and virtual network traffic is a part of your shared responsibility. McAfee public cloud security solutions allow you to extend data loss prevention and access control to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications like Office 365, and your virtual data center security policy to AWS and Microsoft Azure for efficient hybrid cloud security management.
Private cloud and software-defined data center (SDDC) environments running on virtualized server infrastructure enable finely tuned security policy that can be managed and orchestrated to maximize resource efficiency. With the only virtual Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) certified to work with VMware NSX, you can apply micro-segmentation to your infrastructure, controlling security policy at every virtual machine. Virtualization optimized anti-malware intelligently schedules resource-intensive tasks, like scanning, when the hypervisor is not overloaded. Security features can be deployed efficiently as code, using deployment automation tools like Chef and Puppet, whether in the private cloud or across multiple public cloud environments.
