Chris Young, chief executive officer, McAfee. "With two industry leaders coming together under one company, we will make cybersecurity an enabler to the transformative power of our digital age. We are focused on securing customers from their devices to the cloud, giving customers access to market-leading capabilities in the architectural control points that matter most."

Skyhigh is an ideal complement to McAfee's strategy - one focused on building and optimizing mission-critical cybersecurity environments for the future and it is pioneered the cloud access security broker (CASB) market segment that analysts describe as one of the fastest growing areas of information security investments of the last five years, McAfee said.

With this technology, McAfee can now offer a cloud portfolio that addresses the three primary challenges of managing multi-cloud environments-visibility into networks, workloads and data, advanced threat protection and pervasive data protection.

According to McAfee's 2017 cloud adoption and security report, Building Trust in a Cloudy Sky, 93% of organizations use some form of cloud services. McAfee cloud security solutions provide visibility, advanced threat protection, and data protection controls across all clouds to secure network traffic, workloads, and data. The multi-cloud security management of Skyhigh Security Cloud (Skyhigh), McAfee Cloud Workload Security (McAfee CWS) and McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform (McAfee vNSP) allows administrators to identify and secure critical cloud resources.

Security professionals know the importance of the cloud, but need a way to ensure their networks, workloads, and data are all protected. McAfee solutions help in the following ways: visibility into the cloud, threat prevention, and Data Protection.
