McAfee Adds Azure Cloud Security, Integrates Skyhigh’s CASB Tech
March 07, 2018 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle
Today, McAfee said it extended its cloud security software, which protects infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and software-as-a-service (SaaS), to applications on the Azure cloud. It already supported Amazon Web Services (AWS). And it’s developing technology to extend the cloud security software to applications running in containers and serverless platforms like AWS Lambda and Azure Functions, said Anand Ramanathan, vice president of product management at McAfee. Container security is slated for mid-year, with serverless to follow in the second half or 2018 or early 2019. “We’re going deeper into these cloud platforms, using more of the native services these cloud platforms offer, and we will continue to deepen our security controls as they relate to those various platform services,” Ramanathan said.
