McAfee Offers Free McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud to Help Secure State Election Systems


Leading cybersecurity company will provide U.S. state election
officials access to a free 12-month license of McAfee Skyhigh Security

In an effort to help secure U.S. election systems, McAfee, the
device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, has announced it will offer state
election officials in all 50 United States access to a free twelve-month
license of McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud.* The McAfee
Cloud for Secure Elections Program
will help ensure that the
cloud-based storage services housing voter and citizen data are properly
configured for maximum security and are continuously monitored for
internal and external intrusion, and that no citizen or voter data is
improperly uploaded to or shared from cloud services.

"McAfee believes that Together is Power and is committed to protecting
the integrity of the electoral system," said Ken Kartsen, vice president
of public sector sales, McAfee. "We believe the McAfee Cloud for Secure
Elections Program will fill a foundational security requirement for
cloud by protecting against intrusion from those who aim to tamper with
the United States elections."

McAfee Skyhigh Security Cloud provides a comprehensive monitoring,
auditing and remediation solution for infrastructure-as-a-service
environments, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, and
software as a service (SaaS) environments, such as Office 365 and Box.
State election officials who take advantage of the offer can use McAfee
Skyhigh Security Cloud to ensure the integrity and security of their
voter data throughout the election cycle. For example, they can
continuously monitor AWS and Azure storage resources that house voter
data to ensure that they have enabled the most stringent security
settings possible, and they can monitor Office 365 and Box to ensure
that voter data is not housed or shared in SaaS services in violation of
security policies.

"McAfee is committed to putting our cybersecurity expertise to work in
the defense of democracy around the world," added Kartsen.

*Participation in the program requires the review and approval of the
user's election infrastructure to confirm that it meets McAfee system
requirements and that participation does not trigger any state or local
contract or ethics restrictions.
