Overview:

Amazon Web ServicesAs enterprises are shifting their data center strategy to include and often lead with the public cloud server instances, they are mindful that the shared security model for protection is a key consideration. Public cloud providers, like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, protect the perimeter, and users must secure the content. But how can forward-thinking enterprises protect against zero-day and advanced persistent threats while keeping costs in line with their cloud strategy?

McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite delivers comprehensive cloud security to help extend and manage security policies for servers in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and other public clouds. It delivers wider visibility into virtualized server instances in the public cloud, applies security policies to virtual machines when they are provisioned, deploys comprehensive protection with a powerful combination of blacklisting and whitelisting technologies, and dynamically manages your cloud computing environment in concert with desktop, mobile, and physical servers with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software.

Expand visibility with a single platform

Core anti-malware security and zero-day threat protection
Safeguard systems and files from viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, and other cloud security risks; detect and clean malware; and configure policies to manage quarantined items. Prevent viruses entering through removable media, the web, and remote networks.

Block unauthorized traffic with a host-based firewall
Host firewalls deny passage of unauthorized traffic into a system unless it complies with established rules, preventing malware from entering and propagating throughout the cloud server.

Dynamic whitelisting with application control
Ensure that hosts are kept to a known, secure footprint by preventing unwanted applications from executing. Protect against zero-day and advanced persistent threats (APTs) without signature updates, resulting in quicker time-to-protection.

Minimize the impact from ad hoc or unauthorized changes
Track and validate attempted changes in real time on the virtual server, enforce change policies, and block unauthorized changes to critical system files, directories, and configurations.

Manage encryption for Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volumes
Discover Amazon EBS storage volumes and use the McAfee ePO console to encrypt them in just a few clicks.

Key Advantages

The McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite delivers these capabilities:

  • Visibility of elastic cloud server instances as they emerge and retire. Discovery of server instances in the public cloud with McAfee Data Center Connectors to help deliver unified policy configuration and enforcement, even in organizations faced with shadow IT challenges.
  • Protection of server instances with a unique combination of antivirus, host-based firewall, application whitelisting, intrusion protection, and data protection technologies across all public cloud implementations running in either Microsoft Windows or Linux environments.
  • Management of security policies for server instances in the public cloud to ensure extension of best practices, all from a unified management platform.

Features & Benefits:

Optimized for the Public Cloud

Security-minded IT professionals need to manage risks in order to provide the same level of confidence in data in the cloud as they demand from their on-premises servers. McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite is optimized for cloud users with the same world-class McAfee VirusScan Enterprise and intrusion prevention system (IPS) technologies as in our McAfee Server Security Suite Essentials and McAfee Server Security Suite Advanced.

As part of our core server protection, McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite offers McAfee VirusScan Enterprise as the core antimalware solution to protect server instances running either Microsoft Windows or Linux. Though antivirus is key to security, additional solutions are critical to protect against advanced threats. McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention for Servers safeguards businesses against complex security threats that may otherwise be unintentionally introduced or allowed.

McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite includes McAfee Application Control for Servers, a whitelisting solution that allows only authorized software to run on servers. This centrally managed whitelisting solution uses a dynamic trust model and innovative security features that block unauthorized applications and foil advanced persistent threats (APTs)—without labor-intensive lists to manage. Whitelisting significantly lowers host performance impact through protection from threats without signature updates.

A firewall for Linux and Windows systems prevents malware and botnets from entering and propagating throughout the cloud servers by blocking unauthorized network traffic.

Manage encryption for EBS volumes of registered AWS cloud accounts with McAfee Data Protection for the Cloud. Volumes with pre-existing data can be encrypted conveniently from McAfee ePO software. In addition, McAfee Data Protection for the Cloud integrates with Amazon’s Key Management Service (KMS).

Smart Public Cloud Protection

Customers have scarce incremental resources to manage an additional security system for their cloud servers. And with short-term internal projects being assigned to public clouds without proper IT security protocol, the once robust walls of security can quickly become porous, while breach potential is increased exponentially. McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite leverages the power and scalability of McAfee ePO software to identify, manage, and report across the entire server infrastructure: physical, virtual, and cloud. McAfee ePO software provides a single “pane of glass” visibility into those shadow IT instances for highly scalable, flexible, and automated centralized management and enforcement of security management policies to identify, manage, and respond to security issues and threats.

Further, as DevOps tools are proliferating, the need to work seamlessly with such tools is critical. McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite is designed to work seamlessly with the latest DevOps tools, such as Chef and Puppet Labs.

Budget-Minded and Flexible

Business expansion is creating additional reliance on IT to provide faster responses to infrastructure needs. Today, many IT departments meet this need by using Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) to help deliver reduced costs, greater agility, and enhanced scalability. Moreover, the move towards using IaaS to meet growing infrastructure needs moves many companies away from utilizing CAPEX to OPEX. To fully accommodate this dynamic environment, it is essential that the pricing of security software solutions mirrors that of the underlying computing infrastructure. McAfee Public Cloud Server Security Suite is priced by the hour, giving customers the flexibility to pay for server security in the manner that fits best with their financial objectives, while adapting to computing resource consumption within an IaaS infrastructure.
