McAfee announces Google Cloud Platform support

18 Apr 2019

Cybersecurity company McAfee has announced its support for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Cloud Security Command Center (Cloud SCC).

McAfee MVISION Cloud now integrates with GCP Cloud SCC to help security professionals gain visibility and control over their cloud resources and detect and respond to threats.

Cloud SCC users can gain information from the configuration audit capabilities of McAfee MVISION Cloud to locate hidden risks and enforce configuration best practices. 

Generally available today, Cloud SCC is a comprehensive security management and data risk platform for GCP, designed to help security teams prevent, detect and respond to threats from a single pane of glass.

It provides visibility in what assets are running in Google Cloud as well as risky misconfigurations, so enterprises can reduce their exposure to threats.

With incident data from McAfee MVISION Cloud, Cloud SCC can help improve an organisation’s security and risk posture within GCP.

Some of its features include:

  • Incident investigation: With an added layer of visibility from McAfee MVISION Cloud, security professionals can prioritise violations and investigate activities, anomalies and threats with improved insight.
     
  • Configuration auditing: Users can leverage industry-benchmarked configuration audit policies designed to comprehensively evaluate GCP resources and give an end-to-end assessment of risk.
     
  • Security and compliance controls: Users can be notified to take action deep within the family of GCP services to correct policy violations and stop security threats. 

“With McAfee MVISION Cloud for CSCC, security operations professionals can tap into the cloud security incident data from McAfee MVISION Cloud for an added layer of insight to improve their security and compliance outcomes,” says McAfee cloud security business unit senior vice president Rajiv Gupta.

“Users will have the ability to make quicker and more informed actions in Cloud SCC, ultimately resulting in enhanced security and improved business impact.”

In close partnership with Google Cloud, McAfee allows customers to build their security and event management ecosystems in an intuitive way.

The ability to choose the most relevant metrics from any vendor and collect that data in one place allows organisations to get the best usage out of GCP with minimal risk. 

As a McAfee MVISION Cloud customer, we can now extend our commitment to GCP with a stronger ability to protect our data,” says Legendary Entertainment security and operations vice president Dan Meacham.

McAfee MVISION Cloud is currently available on the GCP Marketplace.
