Google Cloud (GCP) provides organizations with leading infrastructure, platform capabilities and industry solutions. Enterprise-grade cloud solutions that leverage Google’s cutting-edge technology help companies operate more efficiently, modernize for growth and innovate for the future. Customers in more than 150 countries turn to Google Cloud as their trusted partner to solve their most critical business problems.
As part of their Google Security Forum Event, Google Cloud leadership focused on their priorities for their GCP customers:
- Give customers the most secure and compliant public cloud
- Offer products that enable layered defense for apps on GCP
- Create platforms and products that enable security in any environment.
A major part of their announcement today was how they are accomplishing this with partnerships, and of course, one of them is McAfee. Under this new partnership, McAfee will tightly integrate its endpoint security solutions for Linux and Windows workloads, as well as its MVISION Cloud for Container Security, on Google Cloud infrastructure. McAfee CEO, Chris Young, joined the GCP CEO, Thomas Kurian on stage to announce the partnership.
Today, many enterprise customers leverage virtual machines (VMs) running in the cloud to handle key Linux and Windows workloads. Ensuring security of these workloads is critical. With this new integration, customers will be able to deploy McAfee’s advanced endpoint security solutions across these key workloads and VMs via Google Cloud Marketplace.
McAfee’s workload security technology uses advanced machine learning and cloud
analytics to help protect against file-based, fileless, and script-based threats at scale for workloads deployed on Google Cloud.
McAfee MVISION Cloud for Containers service extends data security, threat prevention, governance, and compliance capabilities of the MVISION Cloud platform to provide additional security for container-based workloads on Google Cloud. Organizations can also leverage MVISION to integrate security into DevOps processes and toolsets to discover and address security issues before applications are deployed.
