Atos, a global provider of digital transformation solutions with approximately 100,000 employees in 73 countries and annual revenue of around € 12 billion, has launched a new Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Service using McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud – to safeguard enterprise applications and data in the cloud.
The McAfee Skyhigh Cloud Access Security Broker solution would complete Atos’ Cloud Security services and enable the secure digital transformation of its customers. For many enterprises, a CASB would be an integral part of the “from anywhere and with any device” digital workplace strategy. It would give organizations the ability to ensure data protection, compliance policy enforcement and threat protection, whilst empowering employees to collaborate and communicate in a modern workplace.
The new Atos CASB service would give enterprise customers the ability to:
- Discover and remediate the risk from the use of ‘Shadow IT’ across the enterprise
- Control and enforce data privacy and compliance policies across Shadow IT, sanctioned Cloud apps such as Office 365, Box, Salesforce, and ServiceNow, and IaaS platforms such as AWS Cloud and Microsoft Azure
- Protect enterprises’ data through persistent protection, wherever it moves within the cloud
“Our new Atos CASB service, developed with our strategic partner McAfee, combines the expertise of the market leading solution with the proficiency of the market leading managed security services provider,” said Chris Moret, Senior Vice President Cyber Security at Atos. “Thanks to our 5,000 Atos Security specialists, we enhance the McAfee Skyhigh solution as a managed end-to-end experience for our customers.”
5,000 IT Security Experts
From its global network of Security Operation Centers (SOCs) and 5,000 security Experts, Atos would offer a modular and flexible service to identify and report on cloud activity, incident analysis, management and remediation. By adding CASB services to its SOCs, Atos can provide a single pane of glass to secure enterprise multi-cloud, hybrid, and legacy environments.
“CASB has quickly become the essential security foundation for enterprises’ journey to the Cloud,” said Rajiv Gupta, Senior Vice President of the Cloud Security Business Unit, McAfee. “McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud is based on our experience working with Fortune 1000 customers with partners like Atos. It is designed in the Cloud, for the Cloud, with comprehensive enterprise Cloud data protection, and robust threat detection and response capabilities.”
