McAfee launches new mobile devices offerings


McAfee announced the McAfee Cloud Security Platform, a
new approach to helping organizations safely and efficiently take advantage of
Cloud computing. 


The new platform achieves this by securing all content
and data traffic including email, web and identity traffic moving between an
organization and the Cloud.


Once you move data or applications to the Cloud, you
essentially lose most if not all of your security visibility, which most
organizations find unacceptable. By securing the data and traffic before it
travels to or through the Cloud, we help businesses extend their security
practices and policies into the Cloud,” said Marc Olesen, senior vice president
and general manager, Content and Cloud Security at McAfee.


The McAfee Cloud Security Platform delivers security
through highly integrated, modular solutions that protect both inbound and
outbound traffic moving between the enterprise and the public cloud. 


McAfee Web Security provides bi-directional protection
for both incoming and outgoing web traffic through proactive reputation- and
intent-based protection.


Web traffic generated by smart phones and tablets can be
directed through the McAfee Web Gateway using standard device management. This
ensures that mobile devices are secured with advanced anti-malware protection
and corporate web filtering policies.


The Intel Expressway Cloud Access 360 helps enable an
Enterprise or Cloud Provider to provide comprehensive access control for cloud
applications using Enterprise identities.


McAfee Email Security delivers total email protection,
integrating comprehensive inbound threat protection with outbound data loss


The Intel Expressway Service Gateway offloads application
level API security, data transformation, REST to SOAP mediation, and identity
token exchange, to a high speed gateway at the network edge or in the cloud.


Another key aspect of ensuring Cloud security is making
sure organizations identify data that should or should not be moved to the
Cloud.  Using McAfee’s Data Loss Prevention solution, organizations can
first understand where its data resides, classify that data in terms of
importance or sensitivity, build policies to protect that data, and then
enforce those policies while data travels within or outside the organization to
the Cloud. 


McAfee Data Loss Prevention discovers data no matter
where it resides or what format it is in on the network, giving the enterprise
rich data mining tools to deliver effective protection and the creation of more
effective policies that work quickly. Centralized management and reporting is
also provided through integration with the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator


The security modules can be deployed as an on-premises
appliance, Software-as-a-Service solution or a hybrid combination of both. This
provides organizations the flexibility and coverage to protect their
headquarters, regional offices and even remote workers using mobile
