McAfee Launches XDR, Browser Isolation, Cloud App Security Tools

New additions are built to help organizations better respond to threats and protect applications and data in the cloud.

McAfee today released multiple new security products during its MPOWER Digital 2020 event. Tools debuted today focus on cloud application security, remote browser isolation, and extended detection and response (XDR) to help defend against, and address, security threats.

MVISION XDR is a cloud-based threat management platform that covers the attack life cycle before and after an incident. Businesses can view and control threats across the endpoint, network, and cloud; prioritize threats based on risk and potential effect on the organization; and integrate with external threat intelligence and security operations center (SOC) tools. 

Today's SOCs face three key challenges, McAfee says: reactive processes and workflows, alert fatigue and fragmented tools, and limited staff and expertise. The XDR platform is meant to eliminate the complexity of fragmented tools and help SOCs improve their prioritization and orchestration.

Initial XDR capabilities are available today within MVISION EDR; additional XDR capabilities will be available to early access users in the first quarter of 2021.

The company announced its Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP), a tool that brings together Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) for public cloud infrastructure and Cloud Workload Protection (CWPP) to protect virtual machines (VMs), containers, and serverless functions.

The idea is to extend the data protection, threat prevention, governance, and compliance of MVISION Cloud into cloud native applications. CNAPP's capabilities include deep discovery of workloads, data, and infrastructure; vulnerability assessments across VMs, containers, and serverless environments; automation of security controls; and the ability to both build policies based on zero trust access and map cloud native threats to the MITRE ATT&CK framework. 

McAfee today updated its MVISION Unified Cloud Edge (UCE) with an integration of remote browser isolation (RBI) technology, as well as data loss prevention (DLP) and incident management across devices, networks, cloud, and the Web. These new functionalities give UCE a "more comprehensive converged approach to security within the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework," officials said in a statement.

RBI provides greater protection for Web-based threats such as ransomware and credential phishing, while data classification and management tools will protect data where it resides. The RBI technology will be directly incorporated into the MVISION UCE threat protection stack, McAfee says, and users will be able to opt into beta access for integrated RBI in coming months. Its unified DLP incident management capabilities will be available in November.
