McAfee Enterprise integrates with Microsoft Dynamics 365 to strengthen cloud security

By Shannon Williams, Wed 18 Aug 2021

McAfee Enterprise has announced that MVISION Cloud, part of its secure access service edge offering - MVISION Unified Cloud Edge (UCE), now provides enhanced security coverage for Microsoft Dynamics 365, a line of enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management software applications. 

According to McAfee, the solution complements Dynamics 365 capabilities by using a frictionless API-based cloud-native approach that allows IT teams to enforce data loss prevention policies and collaboration controls, access control, address threats from insiders and compromised accounts, audit all user activity and secure corporate data as users collaborate in the cloud.

McAfee is one of the only cloud access security broker vendor who has released API-integrated enterprise data and threat protection capabilities for Dynamics 365, providing enterprise users with an added layer of security, visibility and control. 

MVISION Cloud for Dynamics 365 provides an advanced set of security tools that are delivered via API, enabling holistic security controls across Dynamics 365. 

MVISION Cloud for Dynamics leverages the MVISION UCE Platform, offering a cloud-native solution for organisations to consistently protect their data and defend against threats in the cloud. 

MVISION Cloud delivers:

Data Loss Prevention and Response Action: Monitors sensitive messages and files posted in entities, both in real time and on demand, helping users take corrective action and minimise the risks to their organisation. Customers can set content policies that fit their needs and apply those policies across Dynamics 365 and other cloud apps like Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, and more.

Comprehensive remediation. Enables the auditing of regulated data uploaded to Dynamics and remediates policy violations by coaching users, notifying administrators, restoring and deleting user actions. End users can self-correct their violations, thereby reducing the burden on IT security teams.

Access control: for managed and unmanaged devices, assuring a customer can permit only the approved devices to connect to Dynamics 365.

Activity Monitoring & Anomaly and Threat Detection: Maps to the MITRE ATT&CK Framework via McAfees cloud access security broker technology, delivering a precise method for administrators to hunt, detect and stop cyberattacks on Dynamics 365.

"We are constantly looking for innovative ways to help organisations safely adopt new applications to their cloud portfolio," says Anand Ramanathan, vice president of products, McAfee Enterprise. 

"With MVISION Cloud for Dynamics, security operations centre teams can take quicker and more informed actions, ultimately resulting in enhanced security and improved business outcomes."

Russ Connell, senior partner development manager at Microsoft, says, "We are pleased to see McAfee's commitment to supporting and securing this ever-increasing demand. 

"MVISION Cloud integrates with Microsoft Dynamics 365's APIs ensuring our joint customers can successfully meet key security and compliance requirements," he says.

MVISION Cloud for Dynamics 365 fits all industry verticals, including education, finance, logistics, healthcare, along with organisations of all sizes, due to its flexibility of policies and its ease of use.
