While many businesses cite security as a reason for not moving to the cloud yet, McAfee has updated its cloud security suite to target this demographic.

Boasted as the "only single content-aware platform," the McAfee Cloud Security Platform is designed to secure all primary channels of traffic, meaning email, web and authentication.

Here's a rundown on the new features included in the latest update:

  • McAfee Cloud Identity Manager: Expands integration with SAML aware and traditional log-in cloud applications. Designed to provide ease of use with an SSO Portal for centralized, seamless access.
  • McAfee Data Loss Prevention: Safeguards information while moving it to the cloud. Companies can leverage their existing on-premise or cloud infrastructures for faster categorization and remediation of data across hundreds of servers and thousands of file shares.
  • McAfee Email Gateway (version 7.0): Offers new advanced encryption features, including push and pull, and the ability to view encrypted messages from mobile devices.
  • McAfee Web Gateway (version 7.1.6): Includes enhanced features to limit corporate liability and exposure, and enforce corporate Web usage policies for increased security.

The platform can be deployed as an on-premise appliance, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or as a hybrid solution of these two options.

    No one can ensure that data on a cloud service is secure not even McAfee or Symantic-Norton. Users should buy a 1 Terabyte drive and backup locally plus use a clound service such as Apple's iCloud. That's just common sense.

    The cloud - cute in its thought and ability to access from anywhere with username and password but for most folks, is that type of access to so much necessary? I am with ejourno partially in that local backup is more safe and secure but as for the iCloud, what is the difference between McAfee and Apple other than the name because features can be duplicated. Tried the cloud with Amazon and not impressed. I download what I buy to my home HDs and not have to worry about having Internet access. Just watched T3 over again and we are coming dangerously closer to that reality where the machines run our lives.
