McAfee MVISION meets security requirements for U.S. gov applications

Leading cybersecurity company McAfee has recently confirmed that its MVISION for Endpoint, at the moderate security impact level, has Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authorization designation. It implies that the solution from McAfee has passed strict security requirements to be deployed across the vastly complex and expanding cloud environment of the U.S. government.

The FedRAMP Moderate designation can considered equivalent to DoD Impact Level 2. The authorization has validated the product’s implementation of the baseline 325 NIST 800-53 controls, which helps users from state, local and federal government agencies as well as other industries under regulated environments in managing Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), including routine covered defense information and personally identifiable information.

The three key components of McAfee MVISION are McAfee MVISION ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), McAfee MVISION Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and McAfee Endpoint Security Adaptive Threat Protection with Real Protect (ENS ATP).

THe MVISION ePO component offers a cloud-native single-pane-of-glass console for managing both McAfee and any other security controls, to automate workflows and prioritize risk assessment for reducing the tasks and time needed to triage, investigate and respond to security incidents.

Through McAfee MVISION EDR, a user can simplify the investigation and response for sophisticate threat campaigns with the help of unified detection and response capabilities, including multi-sensor telemetry, real time hunting, continuous monitoring, MITRE ATT&CK mapping and AI-guided investigations.

Endpoint can be protected from advanced malware infection through McAfee ENS ATP, which comes with integrated next-generation AV capabilities like machine learning, exploit prevention, behavioral blocking and file-less threat defense. ENS can also lower the impact of a cyber-attack using enhanced remediation capabilities that can provide benefits like rolling back the destructive effects of a ransomware attack by ensuring the affected files are restored and negating the need for system reimaging.

According to McAfee’s Vice President for DoD & Intelligence, Alex Chapin, the U.S. government today is rushing towards modernizing its IT infrastructure for supporting an increasing number of complicated missions, highly distributed teams and expanding workloads, all this while facing a consistently evolving threat environment.

Chapin added that achieving FedRAMP Moderate Authorization for its MVISION Endpoint, the company is able to offer the command and control cyber defense abilities the government needs to reinforce remote and on-premise security teams.
