McAfee CEO, Chris Young with Oracle’s SVP of SaaS Security, David B Cross.

On the heels of Oracle’s highly attended OpenWorld Conference in San Francisco, Oracle was invited to co-present within McAfee CEO Chris Young’s keynote address at their annual McAfee MPower Cybersecurity Summit. This is part of a series of announcements where the industry is seeing Oracle continue to extend our strategic partnerships on the heels of announcements with Cisco, VMware, Microsoft and others. 

What McAfee and Oracle have jointly announced is a joint-partnership in delivering the new cloud-native McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) leveraging the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) which provides up to 16x performance improvements over on-premises SIEM. In addition, Oracle customers want their Oracle SaaS applications and data protected and they now will find increased levels of visibility and response times with McAfee ESM monitoring these Oracle SaaS business applications. 

Oracle’s SVP of SaaS Security, David B. Cross shared, “In the past, a customer would have had to first implement their Oracle application within their datacenter, and then implement a whole host of security infrastructure to secure them. Now it all gets taken care of for them in the Oracle Cloud – no mess, no fuss- an economical, easy and SECURE way to the future.”

McAfee performed exhaustive research and testing on a number of enterprise cloud providers and settled on Oracle due to our ability to provide a high-performance, scalable, highly available and secure infrastructure that also provided the cost savings benefits.

“During our evaluation discussion, the McAfee team asked for our requirements and how we could jointly build a cloud scale solution. We were blunt and stated that we need a next generation infrastructure that must scale.” said Cross. “We were amazed when we had a POC running in a matter of weeks showing over 165k events per second (from McAfee ESM on OCI).” 

Oracle and McAfee have entered into a critical partnership to ensure Oracle SaaS customers have the highest degree of visibility and security, while also enabling McAfee to scale to the cloud needs of their own customers.
