Visibility and data center security across ever-expanding clouds

Your data center security architecture has transformed. Your hybrid data center is now made up of both physical and virtual deployments, with an ongoing shift to both private and public cloud infrastructure, which brings business agility and operational efficiencies. But ensuring that you have complete data center security, including visibility and control across all the resulting fragmented environments is challenging.

McAfee provides a consolidated approach to securing your cloud and data center transformation with full visibility and control that reaches all corners of your hybrid infrastructures. From physical and virtual environments to cloud services, including private and public clouds, our connected architecture orchestrates technologies to help simplify your security operations. Our vision is to provide integrated automation of data center security with true single-pane manageability across the hybrid cloud.

Gain visibility and centralized control of your data center


Gain visibility

Expand visibility into cloud operations and workloads for optimal data center security. Identify IaaS, SaaS, and private cloud services, monitor how that data is being used, uncover Shadow IT, and protect your workloads with a common set of security policies.


Easily scale and embrace new technologies

Support new devices, applications, and cloud services without introducing security risks or unnecessary operational friction to your data center. Meet demand for access to these cutting-edge technologies without the need for additional IT staff.


Deploy security built for hybrid architectures

Get complete data center security, from traditional on-premises data centers to private and public cloud solutions, by securing your entire corporate IT infrastructure across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.


Unify security management

Keep operational data center security costs down and defensive posture up with uniform security management across traditional infrastructures as well as private, public, and hybrid clouds. McAfee’s unified approach enables centralized and consistent management of security across heterogeneous compute environments to simplify security operations.
