McAfee has announced a new partnership with Microsoft Dynamics 365 which will use API integration to improve threat protection and cloud security.

McAfee has announced that its MVISION Clous SASE offering will now offer enhanced security for Microsoft Dynamics 365. The new offering will utilise using a frictionless API-based cloud-native approach that allows IT teams to seamlessly enforce data loss prevention (DLP) 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.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 is a portfolio of intelligent business applications that allows organisations to deliver operational excellence and create better and more engaging customer experiences. It brings together customers and products, people and data to bridge sales and service, supply chains and store fronts with connected business applications to reach more customers in more places. McAfee is one of the only cloud access security broker (CASB) vendors 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 delivers the following:

  • 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 minimize the risks to their organization. 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 McAfee’s cloud access security broker technology, delivering a precise method for administrators to hunt, detect and stop cyberattacks on Dynamics 365.

Anand Ramanathan, Vice president of products at McAfee Enterprise said: "We are constantly looking for innovative ways to help organisations safely adopt new applications to their cloud portfolio. 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, Sr. Partner Development Manager, at Microsoft said, “We’re 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.”
