McAfee, Inc. unveils its web protection from the cloud
Posted on 29-Jun-2010 20:09 | Tags Filed under: News



McAfee Inc. has announced the worldwide availability of McAfee SaaS Web Protection. The new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Web security solution combines the robust enterprise-grade reporting capabilities and features from McAfee solutions with a massively scalable, multi-tenant platform architecture.

The new cloud-based service protects enterprises from malware and other Web-borne threats without any on-premise requirements.

Like McAfee appliances and virtual Web protection solutions, McAfee SaaS Web Protection leverages the McAfee Global Threat Intelligence network. This network uses millions of threat sensors and more than 350 full-time security experts around the globe to provide customers with real-time threat correlation and protection from malware, spam, trojans and other Internet-borne threats.

“Web filtering solutions have evolved from website monitoring to serious malware defense,” said Marc Olesen, SVP and General Manager, Content and Cloud Security for McAfee. “McAfee SaaS Web Protection incorporates all of the knowledge and experience we’ve gathered through the years, as well as the unique expertise and technologies gained from our recent acquisitions. Combine that with our McAfee Global Threat Intelligence capabilities in the cloud, and we think users will be hard-pressed to find a better, more effective or reliable solution than McAfee SaaS Web Protection.”

The company says McAfee SaaS Web Protection helps reduce upfront costs, as well as lowers ongoing maintenance and management costs. Furthermore, organizations with numerous locations or limited IT resources can quickly deploy the solution by simply redirecting Web traffic to a McAfee data center and allowing McAfee SaaS Web Protection to manage protection from start to finish.

With no applications or hardware to install or deploy, the service provides organizations with immediate network protection.

The McAfee SaaS Web Protection solution provides comprehensive reporting, a simplified policy enforcement and controls, and rapid deployment with scalability.
