McAfee, a device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, has announced a collaboration with Atlassian, a leading provider of team collaboration and productivity software, to bring advanced data security and threat protection to customers looking to accelerate their move to the cloud.
As a result of this collaboration, Atlassian customers can now leverage the power of McAfee MVISON Cloud to apply its security policies to their use of Atlassian services. MVISION Cloud provides visibility and control for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) environments, across content management systems and DevOps environments, via a unified security platform which helps customers get comprehensive control over their cloud services from managed and unmanaged devices.
The need for solutions that are designed to secure the cloud are further validated within a recent McAfee report that found the average enterprise organisation uses 1,400 different cloud services. As more organisations move their operations to the cloud and to remote work environments, they must evolve their security measures to meet the challenges of unintentional data uploads, device usage outside traditional network parameters, insider threats from rogue employees, application misconfiguration and more.
Further, industry analyst firm Gartner warns that, “through 2025, 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.” This has caused enterprises to look for ways to enforce additional security controls on their cloud solutions beyond Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).Click below to share this article
