New Solutions From McAfee Help Address Security Challenges for Data Centers in the Physical, Virtual and Cloud Environments
McAfee on Monday launched a series of Data Center Security Suites designed to help secure servers and databases housed in data centers.
The security subsidiary of Intel launched a total of four suites that include a combination of whitelisting, blacklisting and virtualization technologies for protecting servers and databases in physical, virtualized and cloud-based data centers.
Overall, McAfee’s suites offer a combination of technologies including:
· McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server – Provides blacklisting, whitelisting, and optimized virtualization support capabilities for basic security on servers of different types.
· McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Server–Hypervisor Edition – Provides a set of blacklisting, whitelisting, and optimized virtualization support capabilities for basic security on servers of all types and is licensed per Hypervisor.
· McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure – Provides security for virtual desktop deployments without compromising performance or user experience
· McAfee Database Server Protection – Provides data base activity monitoring and vulnerability assessment in a single suite, for all major database servers.
“Performance and security are key concerns for servers in the physical, virtualized or cloud-based data centers,” said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst, Information Security and Networking at Enterprise Security Group.
“The new server security suites from McAfee, based on its application whitelisting, virtualization and blacklisting and AV technologies, provide an enhanced security posture while maintaining the high server performance needs of the data center,” Oltsik added.
