McAfee announced it has received 94 out of 100 against Gartner’s 480-point solution in the 2021 Gartner Solution Scorecard for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB). The Scorecard, provided independently to every major CASB vendor, is based on an evaluation framework addressing the current and future needs of its customers rating McAfee MVISION Cloud as meeting 97% of its Required Criteria across 11 areas including architecture and management, as well as functions such as data security, threat protection and Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM).
“We’re thrilled to be the only CASB product with a score of 94,” said Anand Ramanathan, vice president of product management, McAfee. “McAfee has always offered leading CASB capabilities and as part of McAfee Unified Cloud Edge platform, provides a comprehensive converged approach to security within the SASE (secure access service edge) framework. This gives our customers the ability to dramatically reduce the costs and complexity associated with enterprise security, while enabling maximum business agility from the cloud.”
The MVISION Cloud family includes a growing collection of cloud security products across several categories, including CASB, Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP). In comparison to other vendors in the Scorecard, McAfee stood out in terms of its API Integration, Data Loss Prevention, Adaptive Access Control, Threat Protection, CSPM and MITRE ATT&CK; framework integration.
“In a South African context, we’ve seen business adopting cloud at an accelerated rate. This Gartner Scorecard reiterates the essential need for these companies to adopt a robust CASB platform, that provides end-to-end security controls,” says Carlo Bolzonello, country manager for McAfee in South Africa. “Importantly, McAfee provides an open platform, which allows for collaboration and integration. This eradicates the need for costly ‘rip-and-replace’ projects, as its integration capabilities mean that businesses are not limited to utilising only one vendor. Decision makers are instead able to design a system based on their business’s unique needs and budget – a benefit which accommodates the needs of all types of organisations, across all sectors.”
In addition to receiving such high score in the 2021 Gartner Solution Scorecard for CASBs, McAfee has also been positioned as a Leader in the Gartner ‘Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers’ for every one of the four years the report has been published.
