Agreement Includes Entire McAfee Solution Set
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 08, 2009 - McAfee, Inc. (NYSE: MFE) today announced that it has entered into a global reseller agreement with HP. Through this agreement, HP will sell McAfee’s entire line of enterprise security products and services globally.
“This agreement underscores the importance of delivering comprehensive security solutions to meet the needs of our customers,” said Roger King, executive vice president of worldwide channel operations at McAfee. “The complexities of today’s threats and turbulent economic times call for agreements of this kind, where products from multiple vendors are combined to maximize our customers’ existing investments and lower operational costs.”
“As one of the largest technology companies in the world, HP is helping its customers navigate the many enterprise security solutions on the market today,” said David Scholtz, senior vice president of strategic alliances at McAfee. “With so many security products with similar features and benefits, and often conflicting promises, it can be extremely difficult and time consuming for enterprises – particularly ones with large, multi-platform, international IT operations – to find the best fit. This agreement will help make it simpler for customers to make these important security purchasing decisions.”
“HP’s customers will appreciate the convenience of buying hardware and security solutions and services from a single vendor,” said Andy Crawford, global director of Software Licensing and Management Solutions at HP. “By offering McAfee hardware and security solutions, HP will be able to help large organizations identify and deploy systems that fit the unique characteristics of their existing IT infrastructures.”
McAfee’s new reseller agreement with HP extends significant value to customers by providing comprehensive world-class security suites and services available from a single source. As one of the driving forces in the enterprise security market, McAfee’s partners are often the main point of contact for enterprise IT purchasing decision makers. Building on both companies’ success in technology and security, McAfee and HP can deliver solutions to enterprise customers that effectively meet the security challenges ahead.
