McAfee and Ingram Micro simplify cloud security

Issue 3 2021 Information Security

McAfee and Ingram Micro have announced that the full MVISION portfolio of McAfee Device-to-Cloud suites is available globally for Ingram Micro’s network of independent software vendors, value-added resellers and managed service providers via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.

Now, channel partners can offer proactive cloud-delivered security solutions for an organisation’s entire hybrid IT environment including comprehensive and unified endpoint security across the entire attack lifecycle, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) security for safe network transformation and integrated Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) security to enable secure digital transformation. Channel partners can also enjoy flexible SaaS subscription terms.

With the Covid-19 pandemic increasing the distributed, virtual workforce, organisations need best-in-class security that is easy to access with flexible, subscription-based licencing options. Since many workplaces continue to evaluate what business will look like as the pandemic sees relief and the global economy pushes toward a new normal, organisations require alternatives to traditional year or multi-year software licencing agreements. By offering McAfee cloud-delivered security solutions on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, customers can more easily deploy proactive cloud-native security across all types of threat vectors – endpoints, web and cloud – and remove time-based barriers to adoption.

“As workforces continue to evolve amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, flexible security solutions are paramount. Customers need a solution that can secure any cloud, keep enterprises safe and defend their endpoints in an easy to procure and deploy model,” said Kathleen Curry, senior vice president of global enterprise channels, McAfee. “Our expanded relationship with Ingram Micro reflects our bolstered channel programme, which is purpose-built to drive cloud adoption and equip all organisations with proactive cybersecurity.”

Joint channel partners will benefit in the following ways:

McAfee and Ingram Micro will be able to engage with and strengthen relationships with global channel partners focused on the cloud more effectively.

• It will now be easier for channel partners to purchase McAfee cloud-delivered security products and solutions through Ingram Micro.

• Partners can also offer implementation services to help organisations deploy and adopt the McAfee Device-to-Cloud solutions.

• The expanded relationship enables Ingram Micro’s network of vendors, resellers and managed service providers to offer their customers cloud security at scale, without lengthy contracts.
