Black Hat – McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced the continued growth of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) and McAfee CASB Connect Program with the addition of 13 new partners, and six newly certified integrations. McAfee SIA helps accelerate the development of open and interoperable security products, simplify integration with complex customer environments, and provide a truly integrated, connected security ecosystem to maximize the value of existing customer security investments.
As an extension of McAfee SIA, the McAfee CASB Connect Program is the industry’s first self-serve framework and accompanying program that enables any cloud service provider or partner to rapidly build lightweight API connectors to McAfee MVISION Cloud within days—without writing a single line of code—to help secure any cloud service in the catalog. With the McAfee CASB Connect program, enterprises can leverage McAfee MVISION Cloud to confidently adopt any cloud service from the McAfee CASB Connect Catalog and enforce the same set of security policies across all their cloud applications.
According to the latest McAfee Labs Threats Report, since Q3 2018 there have been 480 new threats discovered per minute. With the continued growth of the threat landscape it’s critical that companies work together to tackle the challenge of cybersecurity.

Long, vice president of business development, McAfee. “McAfee’s SIA and CASB Connect programs enable businesses to utilize certified integrated solutions from industry leading vendors to enable more efficient and secure business operations.”
