Partnership overview

The VMware and McAfee alliance provides our joint customers with high-value, optimized security solutions for their virtual data centers, private/hybrid cloud, and end-user computing environments. McAfee is committed to supporting VMware security technologies, such as VMware NSX, with our extensive security portfolio to provide the most consistent and comprehensive security approach for VMware users.

McAfee and VMware have collaborated on an integrated solution that leverages VMware NSX automation, platform extensibility, micro-segmentation, and traffic steering capability to dynamically secure workloads using the McAfee Network Security Platform, next-generation IPS services, and allowing infrastructure and security administrators to continue to use existing tools to leverage duty separation.

Global service solutions

McAfee MOVE AntiVirus

The latest version of McAfee MOVE AntiVirus is integrated and certified with VMware NSX, which provides automatic detection of NSX, automatic policy assignment, and SVA deployment on a new host in an NSX environment, thereby providing instant protection for virtual machines. New policies are seen instantly on both NSX and McAfee ePO.

McAfee MOVE AntiVirus supports VMware clusters and allows customers to fully automate the deployment of a security virtual appliance to hundreds of hypervisor hosts simultaneously, saving time, effort, and resources. By optimizing and offloading, McAfee MOVE AntiVirus enables users to obtain higher operational returns, and minimizes the performance impact on virtual servers with enhanced scan avoidance based on the overall hypervisor load. All McAfee solutions are managed by the market-leading McAfee ePO platform. The Data Center Connector for vSphere includes components that help discover and import virtual infrastructure using McAfee ePO. It also allows users to view the virtualization properties and protection status of virtual machines.
