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 Discovery (CWD) discovers and automatically imports Virtual Machines 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.

Cloud Workload Discovery for AWS

Cloud Workload Discovery 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 Discovery 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.
