The broad range of functions and features of McAfee's CASB Platform allows it to secure enterprise data and protect it from cyber-threats across SaaS, IaaS and PaaS.
SANTA CLARA, California, Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global cloud access security broker (CASB) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes McAfee with the 2018 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award for helping organizations accelerate their business in the cloud, while meeting data security, compliance and governance requirements. The company offers an integrated CASB platform, McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud, that delivers consistent data protection and threat prevention capabilities for all cloud services including Software-, Infrastructure-, and Platform-as-a-Service (SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS).
"McAfee for Custom Applications allows enterprises to extend the CASB security capabilities used for SaaS, such as data loss protection (DLP), activity monitoring, threat protection, access control and encryption, to secure custom-built applications running on any IaaS platform," said Tony Massimini, Cybersecurity Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "Its CASB platform for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform features monitoring, auditing, and remediation solutions for enterprises looking to secure all of their IaaS accounts or only those hosting a specific custom application."
"We take great pride in receiving the 2018 Global Enabling Technology Leadership Award," said Rajiv Gupta, senior vice president of the Cloud Business Unit at McAfee. "We helped pioneer the CASB market by inventing a cloud-native security solution to secure corporate data in the cloud. Our customers, their feedback, encouragement, and success, continue to inspire us on our journey to make cloud the most secure environment for business."
One of the groudbreaking innovations in McAfee Security Cloud is CASB Connect, which enables any cloud service provider or partner to rapidly build lightweight API connectors between the cloud service and McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud thus extending consistent data protection and threat prevention capabilities to the cloud service, without the need to write a single line of code.
"With McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud, roles are a collection of permissions and associated scope. The company aims to serve its customers better by engaging with other security vendors and developing a third-party ecosystem," noted Tony Massimini, Cybersecurity Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "McAfee's Cloud Security Technology Partner Program is designed to provide customers with the most advanced cloud security solutions in the market so that enterprises can seamlessly integrate the McAfee CASB with their current and planned security investments."
