McAfee MVISION Cloud Security Platform Selected for the FedRAMP Connect Program

September 10, 2019

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 10, 2019--

McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced that it has been selected by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Connect program. This means the McAfee MVISION Cloud portfolio is being prioritized for FedRAMP High authorization based on demand from federal government agencies and approval by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB).

FedRAMP is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services, with a goal of protecting the data of U.S. citizens in the cloud. FedRAMP administers a marketplace of approved providers to increase the use of cloud services and facilitate digital transformation across government agencies.

“As a leader in endpoint and cloud security, McAfee is committed to meeting the most stringent federal and DoD security requirements to protect government data and agency missions,” said Ken Kartsen, vice president of McAfee’s U.S. Public Sector Business.

McAfee MVISION Cloud protects data, defends against threats, reduces risk, and enables governance across cloud environments, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service, as well as managed and unmanaged devices, networks and on-premises environments. With its pioneering cloud access security broker (CASB) technology, McAfee MVISION Cloud aims to transform the way IT security is deployed and managed. This integrated security solution protects data in the cloud, in data centers, at endpoints, and in transit.

McAfee’s cloud access service broker (CASB) technology achieved FedRAMP Moderate Authorization in November of 2017 and is now available for agencies to protect their workloads and data across multi-cloud FedRAMP High and DoD Impact Level 4 (IL4), IL5 and IL6 environments.
