McAfee a Leader in The Forrester Wave™ Unstructured Data Security Platforms

The mass migration of employees working from home in the last 14 months has accelerated the digital transformation of businesses.  Cloud applications are no longer a “nice to have,” they are now essential to ensure that businesses survive.  This introduces new security challenges in being able to locate and control sensitive data across all the potential exfiltration vectors regardless of whether they are in the cloud; on premise via managed or unmanaged machines.  Attempting to control these vectors through multiple products results in unnecessary cost and complexity.

McAfee anticipated and responded to this trend, solving all these challenges through the launch of our MVISION Unified Cloud Edge solution in 2020. Unified Cloud Edge doesn’t simply offer data protections controls for endpoints, networks, web and the cloud; rather, Multi-Vector Data Protection provides customers with unified data classification and incident management that enables them to define data workflows once and have policies enforced consistently across each vector. Because of the unified approach and our extensive data protection heritage, we are delighted to be named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Unstructured Data Security Platforms, Q2 2021. In our opinion, we were the top ranked dedicated cyber security vendor within the report.

We received the highest possible score in nine criteria with Forrester Research commenting on our “cloud-first data security approachand customer recognition of our “breadth of capabilities (in particular for supporting remote work and cloud use)”.

We continue to innovate within our  Unified Cloud Edge solution through the introduction of remote browser isolation to protect against risky web sites (our “heavy focus in supporting security and data protection in the cloud), which uniquely to the market allows us to continue applying DLP controls even during isolated sessions. Delivering on increased customer value through innovation isn’t just limited to new features, for instance we continue to drive down costs through an unlimited SaaS application bundle.
