McAfee provides enterprises with our McAfee* Cloud Security Platform, which helps customers secure their data as it leaves the organization and moves into the public cloud. McAfee Cloud Security Platform builds a secure bridge from the enterprise to the public cloud. It protects the three primary channels of traffic leaving the organization where data loss and threat intrusion can occur: Web traffic, authentication traffic, and e-mail traffic. The security components include data loss prevention, web security, e-mail security, web services security, and identity access management.
The OpSource* Cloud Hosting service offers a unique approach to security by enabling organizations to customize a cloud networking environment to look and feel like a network they would set up on their own premises. OpSource Cloud Servers are deployed on dedicated OpSource Cloud Networks (virtual LANs [VLANs]), and each Cloud Network can be customized by configuring firewall access control lists (ACLs), load balancing, network address translation (NAT), and multicast to support secure n-tier architectures in the cloud. Security components include (but are not limited to): Customer-Controlled Network Configuration • Configurable Layer 2 VLANs based on Cisco-based switching fabric - Segmentation of public and private IP space (servers are assigned only private IPs when deployed) - NAT and virtual IP (VIP) functions that expose only those private IP addresses customers want exposed to the public Internet • Customizable ACL-based firewall rules to enable access control into each network VLAN - Ability to build multitier network architectures to separate data tiers from front-end web tiers, thus providing an additional layer of firewall rules to protect data Role-Based Administrative Control • Unique user name and password for multiple administrators • Role-based permissions to enable administrator to limit sub-administrators to managing only certain resources Additional • Edge-to-edge security visibility • Intrusion detection system (IDS)
