Protect Your Private Cloud with an Integrated Approach to Security

The march toward the cloud continues at a rapid pace—is your security keeping up? Built to run and scale dynamic workloads on highly virtualized infrastructure, private cloud deployments create security challenges that traditional static security solutions were never designed to address.

In the face of growing your cloud footprint, new challenges emerge. While the cloud can help your business do more and at a faster pace, it can also mean you have less visibility and control over your sensitive data and advanced malware as network traffic flows in an east-west direction between virtual machines. McAfee solutions help you integrate critical security controls into your private cloud environment, ensuring that you have the network visibility, security management, and agility to securely move to a cloud-based infrastructure.

Achieving Your Protection and Compliance Goals for the Private Cloud

Extend visibility to all private cloud workloads

Discover all workloads in private cloud deployments. Our Cloud Workload Discovery helps you understand where to look, providing clear visibility into all private cloud workloads and activity.

Maintain agility

The flexibility of an elastic compute environment means you can scale data center capacity up or down as needed. Ensure your security adapts just as fast without slowing down applications, compute time, or cloud-based services.

Manage security policies efficiently

Tap advanced policy management and automation to quickly extend your security controls to the private cloud. Comprehensive and unified management tools with integration to third-party products ensure effective orchestration of policies.

Prove compliance

Demonstrate that you have effective security in place, meeting regulations such as PCI, HIPAA, and various country and industry requirements for protecting data. Architecting security into your deployment helps achieve this outcome.
