He added: “Developers need to be empowered with the tools that can address the security needs of this new environment, to unleash their creative potential, and deploy applications that can augment the power of the cloud.”

“McAfee MVISION CNAPP extends MVISION Cloud’s data protection to provide comprehensive threat prevention, risk management, and compliance through an automated and frictionless model to secure the cloud-native application ecosystem,” he further noted.
