McAfee Announces SD-WAN Integration and Managed SASE Platform

McAfee has announced enhancements to its secure access service edge (SASE) solution delivered by MVISION, launching integrations with third-party SD-WAN solutions, and extending its unified cloud edge platform to enable global strategic partners to deliver managed SASE offerings.

In addition, McAfee continues to progress engagement with leading global service providers Atos and BT to offer a range of managed web, CASB, and SASE offerings to help organizations struggling with the challenges of digital transformation.

According to the recent McAfee Cloud Adoption and Risk Report, the work from anywhere trend has led to a 50 percent increase in enterprise cloud use across all industries. This trend is merely the latest driver pushing many organizations to dramatically accelerate their cloud transformation plans and re-architect their networks to facilitate a “direct-to-cloud” model for remote users and branch offices.

By seamlessly integrating MVISION UCE with the direct-to-cloud network functionality of industry leading SD-WAN solutions, McAfee says, organizations benefit from a unified cloud-native offering that facilitates fast, secure, simple, and scalable access to web and cloud resources, in line with the SASE framework.

MVISON UCE delivers robust native support for virtually any SD-WAN solution via site-to-site and site-to-cloud deployments, leveraging industry standard dynamic IPSec and GRE protocols. To date, McAfee has certified interoperability with six of the industry’s leading SD-WAN vendors, including Viptela (Cisco), VeloCloud (VMware), and Citrix, with even deeper partnerships forged with additional partners through McAfee’s Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) program.
