Public Cloud Security

Visibility and control of your applications and data in the public cloud: SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS

Secure your applications and data in the public cloud with integrated security

An estimated 76% of enterprise organizations have adopted at least one public cloud service (SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS), such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Office 365, Microsoft Azure, Salesforce, and Box, with most using dozens.

Trust in public cloud service providers is higher than ever with 62% of organizations storing personal customer information in the public cloud. But this trust comes with risk unless visibility and control of these cloud applications and data stored within them is within your grasp.

Company data and applications running on someone else’s infrastructure, such as AWS, can create confusion about who is responsible for what, how to secure your data, and ensuring compliance. Such heterogeneous infrastructure can be a burden for IT to discover usage and centrally secure data, traffic, and applications across all clouds.

McAfee Public Cloud Security delivers centralized visibility and control over your data and workloads in the cloud, providing advanced protection for modern IT environments. Explore our products below to discover technology that can accelerate your business through secure cloud adoption.

Assess Your Cloud Security

The McAfee Professional Services team can evaluate the security of your cloud-based solution, including AWS security, and ease the transition to cloud-based services, assuring customers and business partners that your cloud solution is secure.

Enable secure public cloud adoption

Cloud visibility

You can’t protect what you don’t know about. Both sanctioned and shadow IT resources are in every enterprise environment, causing inconsistent assessments of enterprise risk. In our latest survey, 40% of public cloud services were commissioned outside of the IT department. McAfee helps you gain a better understanding of your entire cloud environment across all your cloud deployments.

Threat protection

Cloud services, whether providing infrastructure, platforms, or applications, require a different approach to security. Your threat protection must align to these new models, adapting to the dynamic and automated nature of cloud environments that sit outside of your traditional network perimeter.

Data protection

The end goal for securely enabling cloud service adoption is to protect your valuable data. As a customer of a cloud service provider, you are responsible for securing your data. While shadow IT and misconfigurations add to the challenge, cloud access security broker (CASB) technology delivers essential cloud-native data loss prevention for the modern IT environment.
