Cybersecurity firm McAfee on Wednesday announced that its Cloud Security Platform will now protect Microsoft Azure and claimed to deliver the industry’s most extensive solution to secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) computing.
The company said the solution addresses the most critical enterprise security requirements for Microsoft Azure Cloud and empowers customers to build applications on Azure without worrying about the security of their data.
“We are on a mission to make Cloud the most secure environment for business. The introduction of McAfee Cloud Security Platform for Microsoft Azure is an important step to fulfilling this mission for our customers,” Rajiv Gupta, Senior Vice President of Cloud Security Business Unit at McAfee, said in a statement. The announcement also marks the introduction of the first joint solution following McAfee’s acquisition of Cloud data security company Skyhigh Networks in November last year.
The company’s Cloud Security Platform includes McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud, McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform (McAfee vNSP) and McAfee Cloud Workload Security (McAfee CWS) solutions. McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud for Azure is now available and McAfee vNSP’s support of Azure customers will be available by the end of March. McAfee CWS, including support for Azure, became available earlier this year.
