Legacy web security has many blind spots


web traffic is related to apps and cloud services

apps and cloud services are unmanaged

Netskope Cloud Report, 2019

Here are five possible concerns to consider with McAfee web security


Unmanaged app visibility

The reality is less than 5% of apps and cloud services have IT administration rights, the rest are unmanaged in business units open to exposing data or introducing threats.


CASB API focus

The average company uses over 1,295 apps and cloud services while McAfee supports 20+ apps with out of band API cloud access.


Limited data protection

Limited DLP is included for web security, however, a separate solution is required for full DLP capabilities adding another console, policy, administration, and reporting.


Appliance limitations

Limited compute capacity for inspecting encrypted traffic, hosting advanced threat defenses, and storing logs and metadata. Appliances are also often last in line for updates after cloud services.


Solution suite

Lacks full integration of one console with a unified policy for secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), and data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities.

Why ignore unmanaged apps
 and Shadow IT
 with McAfee?

Product suites of acquired on-premises designed security solutions face challenges migrating to cloud services and fully integrating to provide a unified console and policy.  Next, you have points of presence (PoPs) to the standard web that may introduce more latency and round trip time as these solutions become cloud-based.
