Security for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Gain visibility and control over your cloud network traffic. Protect against inter-workload attacks and enable micro-segmentation to further harden your cloud deployment. Start by testing McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform in AWS for free. Moving infrastructure to the cloud makes you more agile, delivers scalability that is unfathomable on your own, and takes away the need to maintain the physical elements of your servers. Amazon Web Services (AWS) solves a lot of your problems, but what about security? AWS covers a lot, specifically security “of” the cloud, essentially the backbone. You are, however, responsible for security “in” the cloud, including your operating systems, applications, and data traffic. Amazon explains this shared responsibility model here. Firewall configurations are important, but relying on these basic controls alone can leave you open to advanced malware, along with new vulnerabilities specific to the cloud such as lateral, east-west intrusion across workloads.

Server Security

Discover workloads, protect servers, and expand into the cloud. Build deep server security and efficient compliance practices around business-critical servers, whether they exist in physical or virtual environments, on premises, or in the cloud. Server security that protects your hybrid data center. McAfee Server Security Suites deliver the industry’s first comprehensive solution for discovering, monitoring, and securing cloud workloads. They combine server security technologies to minimize CPU overhead, provide complete security controls for all essential workloads, support all major virtualization environments, and centralize security management through a single administrative console. The most attractive benefit is that our security scales elastically as your demand fluctuates. Discover and protect workloads across all clouds and servers. Learn why moving to software-defined data center is desirable, why it is more secure, how it works, and what you’ll need to know as you architect one for your organization.
