Bring enterprise security to agile cloud deployments

Amazon Web Services (AWS) brings you the agility of the cloud in a broadly distributed, stable platform that is trusted around the world. However, moving quickly to the cloud can result in missteps and put your data at risk—negating the benefits of cloud infrastructure—particularly if you don’t have a comprehensive security plan in place.

You need to secure data and workloads in the cloud. While AWS does a lot—including covering security up to the hypervisor—the rest (from your virtual network to data) is up to you. It really does take a team effort to get it done right. This is where McAfee comes in. We are the device-to-cloud security company with comprehensive solutions for defending enterprise organizations using any OS across public, private, virtual, or hybrid environments. Success comes from bringing together information security with the DevOps and IT teams working in AWS, sharing tools that automate the rollout of security, and keeping security management consistent across the organization. We can help you secure all your data and workloads in the cloud. Explore our solutions below.
