Device-to-cloud cybersecurity provider, McAfee, has reportedly announced significant enhancements to its MVISION UCE Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution. The company has rolled out easy-to-use integration technology with third party Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) solutions, expanding its UCE platform to allow the delivery of managed SASE offerings by global strategic partners.
According to Ashutosh Kulkarni, McAfee’s Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer of the Enterprise Business Group, the company is dedicated to helping clients towards secure movement of operations to cloud further helping their employees to work from anywhere during these critical times. He has also stated that the newly improved MVISION UCE has facilitated the delivery of a SASE solution, equipped to help customers in the security and optimization of their work-from-home infrastructure.
Sources state that McAfee continues to engage with global leaders, BT and Atos, to enable the delivery of various managed CASB, SASE, and Web offerings to help businesses amid challenges of digital transformation.
Chris Moret, the Senior Vice President at Atos, has stated that this collaboration is the key to how Atos will furnish the best cloud security services to its clients in any forthcoming challenges. He has also expressed that market-leading technologies comprising Web Gateway or CASB, that make up McAfee’s MVISION UCE, and the skills and processes of its cybersecurity professionals worldwide enable Atos customers to embrace modernization at the rate of market change.
As per sources, the adoption of the SASE substructure involves the consolidation of several traditionally siloed security and network technologies that require major architectural considerations and partnerships across various parts of the IT organization.
Chris Marwood, BT’s Head of Managed Security Services, has stated that the BT’s strategic collaboration with McAfee is a mutual choice made after intense market scrutiny. The company believes that McAfee’s cloud platform strategy lies where the industry is heading, and its own managed service offerings will advance their joint customers’ journey to the cloud, added Marwood.
