VMworld 2013- McAfee unveils Data Center suite for hybrid data centers

Infotech Lead America: At the VMworld 2013, McAfee announced a new version of its data center security solution for enterprises that rely on public cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server provides complete visibility to all workloads in hybrid data centers so enterprises can securely expand into any cloud environment. This added flexibility gives organizations elastic security that is auto-deployed when new virtual devices are provisioned either on-premise or in the public cloud, the company said.

The new McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server allows organizations to discover all workloads including those from VMware’s vCenter and Amazon Web Services to provide the security administrator with complete visibility of the security status.

It protects every physical and virtual machine in the hybrid data center with fine-grained policy management and data center trust attestation with ease-of-use manageability with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.

The security solution can compute capacity securely into the private and public cloud and ensure identical security posture between on-premise and cloud-based machines.

McAfee Data Center security optimizes security, flexibility and manageability of virtual environments with its MOVE AV functionality, finally providing a simplified security solution for companies investing in virtualization for data centers, applications and desktops.

The solution allows customers to have complete visibility to all workloads on-premise and in the cloud, which then enables them to secure all important workloads. With the ability to expand their compute resources into the public cloud while also securing these workloads, customers can now maintain their security posture even in the public cloud.

“Enterprises must stay compliant and meet government regulations and that is a typical barrier for organizations who want to move workloads into the cloud,” said Rishi Bhargava, vice president of data center security at McAfee.

“With McAfee’s latest Data Center Server Security Suite and its elastic security, enterprises are now empowered to do just that. McAfee provides comprehensive security from servers to networking to storage,” Bhargava added.
