Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)

Partnership overview

McAfee helps customers adopt Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the public cloud with the same security controls available in a private data center. Customers enjoy the operational benefits of the cloud without worrying about a security gap. McAfee Cloud Workload Security (CWS) discovers and automatically imports virtual machines (VMs) from Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and displays them in the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) system tree. This enables users to conveniently manage EC2 instances in the same manner they manage their on-premises environment.

McAfee has achieved AWS Advanced Technology Partner status. This designation means McAfee solutions have been technically validated by AWS, are generally available on AWS, and that multiple customers have successfully implemented McAfee solutions. In addition, AWS has accepted McAfee into its AWS Public Sector Partner Program. This designation reflects McAfee’s strong commitment to paving the way for innovation and supporting world-changing projects in government, education, and nonprofit organizations in their transition to the cloud.

Cloud Workload Security for AWS

Cloud Workload Security for AWS discovers and imports the inventory details of your Amazon EC2 instances from AWS into the McAfee ePO, tracking all workloads as they spin up and down. With this feature, McAfee ePO recognizes elastic scaling of EC2 instances and is always aware of the extent of VMs in the cloud. Cloud Workload Security provides an easy way to deploy all McAfee server protection solutions on EC2, which in turn enables consistent security between the public cloud and the on-premises private data center.

McAfee Web Gateway (MWG) for AWS

With its nearly unlimited policy flexibility and strength in zero-day malware prevention, McAfee Web Gateway can be deployed as a VM in AWS for multiple enterprise security use cases: protect cloud workloads, which require inbound file scanning; complement Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) as an HTTP/HTTPS proxy, allowing flexible web traffic management and threat prevention for virtual desktops; and shift McAfee Web Gateway (on premises, cloud service, and hybrid) policy management to the AWS cloud, reducing TCO by removing the on-premises elements of managing proxy technology.
