This is a very exciting time at McAfee. Cloud computing is providing new ways for us to help our customers save time and money. Our industry leading global threat intelligence technologies reside in the cloud and we deliver our applications, over the internet, in a Security-as-a-Service model.Our customers can save time by using our Security SaaS technologies because the solutions are managed on McAfee infrastructure and are instantly available. Starting a new Security SaaS service is as easy as clicking on a link. And the Tolly Group recently did a study which demonstrated that customers can save up to 50% by deploying security solutions in the cloud as opposed to in-house.
McAfee has the broadest portfolio of Security SaaS solutions to offer to the market. We cover multiple threat vectors, including endpoint, email, Web and vulnerability scanning, and our solutions are powered by the global threat intelligence gathered by McAfee Avert Labs. We also have been providing Security SaaS to the market for nine years. Our solutions are robust and stable – we manage the software for you so you can focus on using it.
It is really all about choice. McAfee wants to provide our customers a choice on how they use our solutions. Our customers have been asking for solutions they can deploy in the cloud, saving them investment in infrastructure and allowing their teams to focus on what is critical to their business. McAfee has solutions that customers can deploy in-house, in the cloud or as a hybrid or combination of both.
And by integrating with McAfee’s real-time, cloud-based global threat intelligence, our Security SaaS products provide increased visibility into both external and internal threats and vulnerabilities, protecting customers more efficiently and reducing both acquisition and operational costs. With 350 threat researchers and tens of millions of data collection sensors, McAfee’s global footprint is substantial.
McAfee is committed to continuing to build Security SaaS solutions for our customers. We have plans to expand our offerings in Email Security and Vulnerability Management in the cloud. Check back here – we will update you on our plans and let you know when new solutions are launching.
