McAfee has announced the general availability of its MVISION Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) security device.
Developed to secure cloud native applications, MVISION CNAPP promises consistent data protection, threat prevention, governance and compliance through the cloud-native application lifecycle for container and OS-based workloads.
“Enterprises want to leverage the innovation and velocity offered by the public cloud, in conjunction with their private data centres, while enabling a consistent security posture,” said Shishir Singh, chief product officer at McAfee. “Now generally available, MVISION CNAPP delivers an integrated platform to secure modern cloud native applications to accelerate enterprise digital transformation journey.”
According to McAfee, the platform is the industry’s first to bring application and data context to converge Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for public cloud infrastructure, and Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) to protect applications distributed across virtual machines, compute instances and containers.
MVISION provides five key capabilities: Deep Discovery, Shift Left, Workload Protection, In-tenant Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Scanning and MITRE ATT&CK Framework for Cloud. Frictionless deep discovery of workloads, data and infrastructure is provided alongside protection against configuration drift and automated assessment across virtual machines, containers and developer pipelines.
Workload Protection is a new light weight agent to support ephemeral workloads, including application allow listing, workload hardening, integrity monitoring and detection of anomalous behaviour. In-tenant DLP scanning enables local scan of data without the need for enterprises to move data outside their tenant, while the MITRE ATT&CK framework empowers the Security Operations Center (SOC) by mapping cloud native threats.
