McAfee Corp., the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, announced the MVISION Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) with several native Amazon Web Services (AWS). These services integration helps customers easily secure applications and data in their Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) environment. Designed to support multiple AWS services, MVISION CNAPP helps customers continuously determine and fix misconfigurations and software vulnerabilities in their AWS environment and securely accelerate their deployment of cloud-native applications.
After being named a new McAfee security service last month, MVISION CNAPP brings together Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP), Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), and application and data security under a single solution. The unanimous solution allows security teams to dive deep into the service configuration for AWS and industry standards to better assess their data and application security risks. It also allows integrated workload protection tools to increase security across their entire application lifecycle. CNAPP is compatible with different AWS deployment services such as AWS Systems Manager and AWS PrivateLink that makes deployment more manageable and more secure. Also, compatible with security services such as AWS Security Hub with the broader workload and data context for enhanced security.
“AWS Security Hub is a great example of a security service built specifically for AWS customers,” said Anand Ramanathan, Vice President of Product and Marketing, McAfee. “We’ve collaborated with AWS to add hybrid security use cases and broader workload and data context to enhance the value of this service, as well as to leverage AWS-native deployment services allowing customers to simply add our CNAPP capabilities to deployment pipelines already in use thus seamlessly enhancing the security of their cloud-native applications.”
“In today’s digital enterprise, security is a critical priority across the organization,” said Dan Plastina, Vice President, Head of Security Services, Amazon. “We are delighted to be working with McAfee to facilitate collaboration across developer and security teams so that customers can more effectively secure their workloads in the cloud.”
“EA’s business depends on the public cloud, and it’s my role to manage the security of that environment,” said Bob Fish, Enterprise Security Architect at Electronic Arts. “MVISION CNAPP integrates with AWS deployment services such as AWS Systems Manager and AWS PrivateLink and also integrates with AWS security services like AWS Security Hub, enhancing AWS native security capabilities. We prefer a single unified security platform over implementing separate point products for each security capability required. The unified approach of MVISION CNAPP allows us to use fewer people to manage security risk across all our AWS resources.”
AWS Marketplace MVISION CNAPP allows customers to streamline purchasing the new service and provide consolidated billing for consumption. Moreover, MVISION CNAPP has purpose-built security audit policies for AWS container services such as Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), and AWS Fargate.
