LAS VEGAS, 22 October 2012 - McAfee today announced seven new partners have joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance (SIA). McAfee SIA is the security industry’s premier technology-partnering program, delivering solutions to maximize the value of existing customer investments while reducing time to problem resolution, and lowering overall operational costs.
The new partners that have joined the McAfee SIA program are:
In addition, AlgoSec, fixIQ, InfoReliance, and Tomium now have “McAfee Compatible” solutions and have been promoted to Technology Partner status in the McAfee SIA program. McAfee has worked with these partners to validate their integrations for their adherence to best practices for integrating with McAfee products.
Finally, McAfee has also welcomed AlgoSec, Circadence, and WCK to its Sales Teaming Program. Partners in the Sales Teaming Program complement the McAfee product portfolio, and enable the McAfee sales force and channel to drive more complete security solution relationships with enterprise customers.
“The list of emerging security threats continues to grow and effective security is more complex than ever,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. “McAfee and our SIA partners are addressing these issues together in order to bring the most innovative technologies to our joint customer base and to solve their growing security needs.”
McAfee FOCUS, McAfee’s annual security conference, is being held from October 22 - 24, and is being sponsored in part by more than 25 SIA partners that will showcase their solutions in the main exhibition hall. To further articulate the vision and the value of SIA, on Tuesday, October 23, from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. at FOCUS 12, SIA Partners AccessData, Autonomic Software, and FireMon, along with McAfee customer Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), will participate with McAfee in a discussion titled, “Visibility and Velocity: The Power of Multi-Vendor Integrations.” As part of its Security Connected strategy, McAfee is leading the way not just in integrating its own portfolio, but also in integrating its management platform with over 130 partners in more than a dozen security markets. Attendees will learn how McAfee works with partners to lower the cost of ownership and operation through smart integrations. Numerous other SIA Partners will co-present with McAfee in other targeted security sessions.
To support the SIA partner ecosystem, McAfee is hosting its fifth annual SIA Developer Conference on October 25 in conjunction with McAfee FOCUS 12. During the SIA Developers Conference, McAfee will present the Rookie of the Year award, the Most Innovative Partner award, and the SIA Partner of the Year award, and winners will be posted on October 25 on the SIA partner directory page.
