McAfee announces the general availability of McAfee MVISION CNAPP security service

McAfee has announced the general availability of McAfee MVISION Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), a new security service designed to secure cloud-native applications. MVISION CNAPP delivers consistent data protection, threat prevention, governance, and compliance throughout the cloud-native application development lifecycle for container and OS-based workloads.

McAfee MVISION CNAPP is the industry’s first platform that brings application and data context to converge Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for public cloud infrastructure, and Cloud Workload Protection Platform (CWPP) to protect applications distributed across virtual machines, compute instances and containers. MVISION CNAPP provides five key capabilities:

1. Deep Discovery — MVISION CNAPP provides frictionless deep discovery of all workloads, data, and infrastructure, prioritize security risk, based on misconfigurations, software vulnerabilities and sensitive data.

2. Shift Left — MVISION CNAPP protects against configuration drift and provides automated assessment across virtual machines, containers, and developer pipelines.

3. Workload Protection — MVISION CNAPP introduces a new lightweight agent to support ephemeral workloads. Includes application allow listing, workload hardening, integrity monitoring, and detection of anomalous behaviour to access true application risk.

4. In-tenant Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Scanning — MVISION CNAPP enables local scan of data without the need for enterprises to move data outside their tenant, facilitating cost optimization, increased security, and data privacy.

5. MITRE ATT&CK Framework for Cloud — MVISION CNAPP empowers the Security Operations Center (SOC) by mapping cloud-native threats to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework for Cloud.

“Enterprises want to leverage the innovation and velocity offered by the public cloud, in conjunction with their private data centers, while enabling a consistent security posture,” said Shishir Singh, chief product officer, McAfee. “Now generally available, MVISION CNAPP delivers an integrated platform to secure modern cloud-native applications to accelerate enterprise digital transformation journey.”
