How McAfee can help you scale safety for employees working from home

Mar 25th 2020 at 6:08 AM

We are in a moment of rapid change for our IT environment. As companies shift from working in an office within their controlled network to working from home, many are finding that the architectures they have are not ready for the scalability and security challenges of a decentralized workforce. There are three major scenarios created by this shift that affect the security posture:


Unsafe devices are being used for work others are issuing new managed laptops that need to ramp up with existing endpoint security.

The internet is accessed directly, without a VPN. Most VPN deployments aren’t ready to scale to an entire workforce routing traffic through them. Slowdowns and outages can cause users to turn off their VPN. Some may not be licensed for the entire workforce. In each scenario, devices will access the internet directly without the defense in depth of your managed network.

Data going to cloud services no longer routes through the network. There has been a massive increase in the use of cloud-based tools to support meetings and collaboration for decentralized teams. With direct internet accesses, data sent to the cloud falls out of your visibility and becomes vulnerable. Sharing within the cloud and to external parties also falls outside of your visibility and control.

Unsafe managed device

If you are releasing new managed equipment to employees so they can work from home, we have some options to help you easily deploy to them. First, if you have an existing per-user subscription, you are entitled to deploy 5 devices per user McAfee Endpoint Protection at any time. If you need to add users, we are offering a 3-month subscription to help you scale. For your fastest route to deployment, you have access to our cloud-based management platform. Use this "Contact Us" form to get started.


Direct internet access

To protect your home-based users accessing the Internet directly without a VPN, you can connect them to our cloud-based Secure Web Gateway, which is part of the MVISION Unified Cloud Edge. It adds security without backhauling traffic to the VPN and can alter or replace your on-premises secure web gateway. Existing Web Gateway customers can reuse their policy on the cloud in a simple push.


For anyone new, Unified Cloud Edge adds instant policy control, zero-day malware prevention, and data loss prevention (DLP) to web traffic. You also get advanced cloud application intelligence with sophisticated usage and risk reporting for shadow IT based on your user's browsing habits.


We are offering a 3-month subscription to MVISION Unified Cloud Edge to cover your new home-based users, along with a 3-month extension subscription to existing customers of any McAfee Web Gateway product. Use this "Contact Us" form to get started.


Data in cloud services

To keep your data secure, share within it, and try to leave cloud services like Microsoft OneDrive, SharePoint, Exchange Team, Box, Google Apps, Salesforce and more, your most effective control point is a direct API- Based connection, through the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB). We are providing a 3-month subscription to our CASB for any cloud service you need to protect. Again, use this "Contact Us" form to get started.


The duration of this innings is uncertain. We now have professional services available to help you as soon as possible, and you have the facility to deactivate any 3-month subscription when it is no longer needed.


We understand the difficulty and urgency you are facing. Please take advantage of these offers to easily transition from a secure, work-at-home IT environment.
