The latest version of McAfee Inc.’s data centre security solution expands protection coverage to virtualized environment by protecting both physical and virtual machines in private and public cloud data centres.
The suite provides visibility into all workloads such as those from VMware’s vCentre and Amazon Web Services so that administrators are able to determine the security status of their machines.
The product also provides “fine-grained” policy management and data centre trust attestation with the use of McAfee’s ePolicy Orchestrator software. The software enables unified visibility and management of endpoint, network and data security.
The Data Centre Security Suite also ensures that organizations have an identical security posture between on-premise and cloud-based machines.
