SANTA CLARA, CA – McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced that it has extended its Cloud Security Platform to consistently protect Microsoft Azure, delivering the industry’s most extensive solution to secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The solution addresses the most critical enterprise security requirements for Microsoft Azure and empowers customers to build applications on the Microsoft Azure cloud with the peace of mind that their applications, underlying cloud infrastructure and enterprise data are protected.

This announcement marks the introduction of the first joint solution following McAfee’s acquisition of Skyhigh Networks , demonstrating the company’s commitment to enhancing its Cloud Security portfolio, which now includes McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud, McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform (McAfee vNSP) and McAfee Cloud Workload Security (McAfee CWS). McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud for Azure is available now, and McAfee vNSP’s support of Azure customers will be available by the end of March. McAfee CWS, including support for Azure became available earlier this year.


As organizations migrate from data centers to the cloud, they need to take measures to ensure their use of cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure, is safeguarded. This process is not easy due to many complex security parameters to configure, incidents to respond to and controls to manage, which are different across the various cloud providers. This leaves many cloud implementations vulnerable to attacks, such as those discovered by Skyhigh where man-in-the-middle (MITM) exposures could be used to penetrate enterprise cloud applications. McAfee solves this problem by providing one Cloud Security Platform that ensures comprehensive visibility and consistent enforcement of security and compliance configurations and policies across multiple cloud IaaS/PaaS platforms.

“Moving applications, data and workloads to the cloud exposes enterprises to new threats and risks,” said Rajiv Gupta, senior vice president of the cloud security business unit, McAfee. “At the same time, the adoption of cloud allows organizations to transform their business. This is why we are on a mission to make cloud the most secure environment for business. The introduction of McAfee Cloud Security Platform for Microsoft Azure is an important step to fulfilling this mission for our customers.”

About McAfee
McAfee is the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company. Inspired by the power of working together, McAfee creates business and consumer solutions that make our world a safer place. By building solutions that work with other companies’ products, McAfee helps businesses orchestrate cyber environments that are truly integrated, where protection, detection and correction of threats happen simultaneously and collaboratively. By protecting consumers across all their devices, McAfee secures their digital lifestyle at home and away. By working with other security players, McAfee is leading the effort to unite against cybercriminals for the benefit of all. www.mcafee.com

SAN JOSE, CA – Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, is driving the server and storage industry’s rapid transition to 25G Ethernet Networking technology with a robust selection of network interface card (NIC) and top-of-rack (ToR) switch solutions.

As memory, processor and storage performance increase, the demand for expanded network capacity follows naturally. When combined with increased system performance, 25G Ethernet helps enterprises deliver new products and services to market faster. These innovations support smarter machines and bigger data with 2.5 times faster single lane network performance than 10G – all at about the same cost. According to industry analysts, 25G will triple in volume over the next year or two.


“The time for transitioning from 10G to 25G networking is now, and the transition is happening very quickly!” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “Self-driving cars, AI, machine learning, big data and NVMe-over-Fabric (NVMe-oF) are all pushing system performance to the limits and driving the demand for more network bandwidth. With higher performance, better scalability, as well as an easy and clear upgrade path to 100 Gigabit Ethernet networks, customers are upgrading their networks to 25G to increase network throughput – meeting the needs of those applications that are now hungry for even more bandwidth.”

Supermicro offers a wide range of 25G NIC solutions that empower customers to future-proof nearly any Supermicro system by equipping it with 25G Ethernet Networking technology. All of Supermicro’s 25G products are dual-speed, so they can operate at either 10G or 25G. This offers superior investment protection for companies only beginning to evolve from a 10G to a 25G network infrastructure. Customers can install these systems today and interconnect with their existing infrastructure; when the time to upgrade to 25G comes, it is merely a configuration update – no need for a disruptive and costly hardware change.

For those ready to upgrade their ToR switches to 25G, Supermicro offers both its flagship 100G switch and its new standalone 25G switch. The SSE-C3632S is a 100G switch that can be configured with each of its 32 ports split by four to support up to 128 connections at 25G. Alternatively, the new SSE-F3548S offers an extremely cost competitive option with 48 ports of 25G and six uplinks of 100G, and the uplinks can be split by four to support as many as 72 connections at 25G.

Supermicro also offers a 25G switch (SBM-25G-100) with the X11 SuperBlade®. This switch can be used with either the 8U SuperBlade enclosure (SBE-820J) or the 6U SuperBlade enclosure (SBE-610J) and features twenty 25G downlink connections, four QSFP28 ports where each port can be configured as 40G or 100G uplink connections. Using splitter cables, individual 40G ports can be split into four 10G ports or the 100G port can be split into four 25G ports. Like the standard 25G ToR switch, the blade switch auto-negotiates and is compatible with 10G networking, providing customers a clear path to future 25G upgrades to their existing datacenter infrastructure. Customers who are familiar with the Blade networking management interface of MBM-GEM-004 will benefit from using a similar GUI/CLI interface with the new 25G switch. Additionally, it supports the latest networking protocols required for today’s datacenter and cloud infrastructure environments. The 25G mezzanine card that interfaces with the blade server supports RDMA/RoCE, DPDK, packet pacing, flow steering and Ethernet offloads.

25G Ethernet improves productivity in many diverse applications. For example, Web centric or e-commerce business models always drive demand for more network bandwidth. Similarly, high-performance computing (HPC), distributed applications and clustered databases need fast networks as well. And NVMe-over-Fabric (NVMe-oF) absolutely drives up the requirement for higher NIC and backbone network speed. Supermicro’s many 25G solutions can support these applications effectively.
