McAfee, a device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced that
McAfee MVISION Cloud has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security
Competency status and received AWS Well-Architected designation for its
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) technology. This makes McAfee the
first CASB technology vendor to achieve AWS Security Competency status,
demonstrating its technical proficiency and relentless execution to
address its customers’ cloud security needs.

Enterprise organizations are accelerating business through cloud
adoption. However, securing those cloud environments means upholding
their commitment to the industry-accepted Shared
Responsibility Model
for security—making it necessary to implement
cloud security solutions that help them achieve this goal. McAfee’s
market-leading CASB technology builds on AWS’s existing security
capabilities by providing a uniform approach to visibility and response
to threats, compliance status, configuration management and drift, and
sensitive data protection through comprehensive and consistent policies.
McAfee MVISION Cloud is a single pane of glass for all IaaS,
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) resources
for customers, further enabling their business transformation
initiatives.

“McAfee MVISION Cloud delivers a comprehensive solution to efficiently
monitor, prioritize, and respond to security events so customers can
fulfill their shared responsibility for security on AWS,” said Rajiv
Gupta, senior vice president, Cloud Security Business Unit, McAfee. “We
are proud to achieve AWS Security Competency status for our
frictionless, cloud-native solution for organizations to consistently
protect their data and defend against threats in the cloud.”

“By achieving AWS Security Competency status and the AWS
Well-Architected designation, McAfee MVISION Cloud has demonstrated its
ability to work with our top IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS vendors,” said Dan
Meacham, vice president, Security and Operations at Legendary
Entertainment. “Achieving AWS Security Competency status further
enhances our trust in McAfee to continue to be a market leader in
helping organizations such as ours to advance our cloud-enabled business
objectives.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from
startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and
deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS
Competency Program
to help customers identify Consulting and
Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.
