Cloud adoption without cloud risk

Over 90% of organizations around the world are using cloud services1. But whether it’s private, public, or hybrid, a sense of risk persists in the minds of CIOs and CISOs. The culprits for this perception are the usual suspects—lack of visibility and shadow IT, control over data and systems, new sources of intrusion, security fragmentation, and not enough cybersecurity talent to manage it all.

Cloud adoption doesn’t need to carry increased risk or complexity. In fact, security that has been optimized for cloud environments can be more effective than legacy on-premises systems. Using the cloud itself—either through virtualized security or security services, can lower TCO and improve resource utilization—all critical in a time when we face highly-motivated and well-funded adversaries ready to jump on any misstep we take.

How do I protect my cloud?

With rapid scalability, fast deployment options, and increased cost savings, it’s no surprise that organizations are shifting IT to cloud services. The rush to the cloud, however, can leave some important cloud security features overlooked, potentially putting crucial data at risk. Adopting cloud services without security in hand can unintentionally allow unauthorized user access, perpetuate Shadow IT practices, or overlook regulatory compliance requirements. As the once clear network perimeter erodes, you need a cloud security solution that can adapt to your evolving needs. Cloud security solutions from McAfee ensure productivity gains from the cloud are supported with advanced security for your organization.

As your infrastructure adapts to the cloud-centric model of IT, so must your security. Migrating to the cloud doesn’t mean your organization needs to sacrifice visibility and control of security and IT operations. You need a cloud security solution as agile as your new environment. McAfee cloud security solutions provide visibility into your cloud services and simplify security management all while protecting your cloud deployments.

Regardless of where your data resides, we can protect your cloud with our hybrid, private, or public cloud security solutions.

If your infrastructure is split between the cloud and on premises, hybrid cloud security solutions can bridge the gap without introducing time-constraining complexity. Keep your operational costs down while securing all aspects of your hybrid infrastructure from advanced threats. Scale our hybrid cloud security as your cloud deployment needs evolve while maintaining consistent visibility and unified security management. 

The private cloud and software-defined data center (SDDC) allows dynamic workloads to run on virtualized infrastructure, but creates obstacles that traditional security solutions are not built to overcome. You don’t have to lose control over virtualized infrastructure, like virtual networks, in exchange for the benefits of the private cloud. Our private cloud security solutions delivers network visibility, efficient security management, and can help you meet compliance goals.

Migration to the public cloud means your organization is obligated to secure your data at a minimum, and in the case of IaaS, your applications, operating systems, and often virtual network. McAfee public cloud security solutions allow you to extend your existing private cloud security, server, and data protection to the public cloud, ensuring the infrastructure run by third parties such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure remains secure.
