McAfee Enterprise Introduces Industry Leading Comprehensive, Data-Centric Solution to Secure Private Applications

MVISION Private Access provides ‘Zero Trust’ unified protection, fast direct-to-app access and 99.999% availability to private applications

SAN JOSE, Calif  : McAfee Enterprise today announced  MVISION Private Access, an integrated approach to enable granular ‘Zero Trust’ access and extend data and threat protection capabilities to private applications hosted across hybrid IT environments.

Many organizations are extending the option to work remotely as the COVID-19 pandemic eases across some regions. The physical office as we knew it has been replaced with a hybrid work environment, where employees are increasingly relying on the cloud for high-speed, low latency data access and seamless collaboration. A Deloitte survey of CIOs found that 62% of workloads would be in the cloud by the end of 2021—up from just 41% in 2019—split across public, private and hybrid cloud deployments.

“As private applications increasingly move to the cloud, organizations are rapidly adopting Zero Trust Network Access due to its security and flexibility advantages compared to VPN,” said Christopher Rodriguez, research director, IDC Network Security. “However, organizations need to recognize that private applications are just as likely to pose a data theft risk as SaaS apps, and that this risk needs to be mitigated.”

MVISION Private Access disrupts the Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) market by making data-centricity a core capability of granular “Zero Trust” access to private applications, whether in customer data centers, or hosted in private, public or hybrid cloud environments, from any location and device. The solution provides complete coverage across managed and unmanaged devices and performs continuous risk assessment by deriving enhanced device posture information through McAfee Enterprises endpoint security technology. Furthermore, MVISION Private Access converges with MVISION Unified Cloud Edge (UCE) for a single low-latency, 99.999% available cloud-native platform that offers unified visibility and control across clouds, private applications, web and endpoints.

“ZTNA is built for cloud-first deployments, simplifying technology stacks, reducing cost and complexity, and improving productivity. However, existing ZTNA solutions lack the data-centric security controls associated with cloud and web security needed to secure today’s increasing remote connections,” said Shishir Singh, chief product officer, McAfee Enterprise. “MVISION Private Access unlocks secure, seamless and ultra-fast access to private applications for remote workforces and eliminates the additional hardware costs, time-consuming setup process and complicated architecture associated with traditional VPNs.”

MVISION Private Access provides secure, ubiquitous access to private resources from any remote location and device, and secures remote workforce collaboration with:

MVISION Private Access also further integrates with IAM (Identity and Access Management) and MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) solutions, enabling strong authentication options for application access and supplementing context-based access controls. This eliminates the risk of threat actors infiltrating corporate networks using compromised devices or user credentials, preventing an attack from propagating a network.
