The IAM role gives us complete control over the cloud environment

What is our primary use case?

* Visibility for cloud workloads, including server, serverless and Kubernetes. * Security configuration review along with automatic remediation. * Posture management and compliance for a complete cloud environment. * Centralize visibility for a complete cloud environment of the workload hosted on multiple cloud platforms (AWS and Azure). * Baseline for security policy as per the workload based on services, such as S3, EC2, etc. * Visibility of an API call within the environment. * IAM management providing access to the cloud network in a controlled manner. * Alerts and notifications for any… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It helps us to analyze vulnerabilities way before they get installed in production and the web. It gives us more security in the production environment."
  • "Automatic remediation requires read/write access. When providing read/write access to third-party applications, this can add risk. It should have some options of triggering API calls to the cloud platform, which in turn, can make the required changes."

What other advice do I have?

The cloud and on-prem environments are completely two different networks. They should offer the cloud in India. Soon, there will be GDPR and India will have its own data protection laws. This might create some issues in the case of the data residing outside India. Because we are collecting metadata from the internal networks for the cloud environment, this is the reason that I suggest that they should have some plans to have the cloud in India. However, neither Prisma nor Trend Micro have cloud in India. I would rate this solution as an eight out of 10.

We are able to filter alerts by security level so our teams understand which situations are critical

What is our primary use case?

I was looking for one tool which, as a WAF, could provide me with information regarding applications and with features where I can oversee things. We use the solution's ability to filter alerts by levels of security and it helps our teams understand which situations are the most critical. Based on the priorities that I get for my product, I can filter the notices the team needs to work on, to those that require immediate attention. That means it's easier for me to categorize and understand things exactly, on a single dashboard. I can see, at one point in time, that these are my 20 applications… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I was looking for a vulnerability scanner and I was looking for one place in which I could find everything. This tool not only does vulnerability scanning, but it also gives me an asset management tool."
  • "We would like it to have more features from the risk and compliance perspectives."

What other advice do I have?

It's a good tool. I would tell anybody to give a shot. It's easy, it's user-friendly; it's like a plug-and-play tool. I am a single point of contact for this solution, right now. I'm working on it with my entire management to review things. I have to coordinate because of the multiple platforms they have. Roles have been assigned at different levels. There is a consultant's role, a reviewer's role, and there is an implementer's role. The latter is supposed to be working with them. Root cause analysis needs to be done at my own level. The solution does inform me that a predicted vulnerability…

Automatically discovers the number of servers and checks for compliance

Pros and Cons

  • "The discovery feature is the most valuable. After you integrate your cloud environment, maybe an Azure or AWS, or a private environment hosted on VMware, it automatically starts discovering the number of servers that are running on that cloud and the number of services that you have done. It is a beautiful feature because, from a security standpoint, it is difficult to identify which VM is compliant or not when you keep on provisioning a number of VMs in the cloud. It also checks for compliance. It checks whether a system is compliant and whether antivirus is installed on a VM. If an antivirus is installed, it checks whether the antivirus is updated to the latest signature package or not. All these things are beautifully done by McAfee Cloud Workload Security. For communicating with the McAfee server, you need to install an agent on the VM. McAfee Cloud Workload Security gives you a direct opportunity to install an agent on a Windows machine. If you have a Windows cloud, you can directly push that agent onto the VM through your McAfee portal. It provides you a single dashboard view of all servers present in the cloud. It shows the servers on which the antivirus is already installed as well as the servers for which the antivirus installation is still pending. This dashboard view is a much-needed thing. It also has a centralized management, which makes it easy to use."
  • "Its vulnerability assessment is not the best. We cannot identify the vulnerabilities that are related to the operating system by using McAfee Cloud Workload Security. I wish McAfee would add a vulnerability assessment tool that will not only identify the vulnerability but will also be able to generate a report so that the required patching can be done for the servers. Currently, McAfee Cloud Workload Security only integrates with AWS and Azure. If it can also integrate with GCP, Alibaba, and other cloud services available in the market, it would be good because not all people are using Azure and AWS."

What other advice do I have?

I would surely recommend this product. It is a good product. I would rate McAfee Cloud Workload Security a nine out of ten. The vulnerability assessment feature is ideal for this product, and it would improve the product capability a lot.
