At the Gartner Compliance & Risk Management Summit, McAfee and Tyco Spoke to the Trials That Global Businesses Face in Risk Management
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 04, 2009 - McAfee, Inc. (NYSE:MFE) vice president of operations and strategy, risk and compliance unit, Stuart McClure and Global Information Security Officer of Tyco, International, Gene Fredriksen, told attendees of the Gartner Compliance and Risk Management Summit that compliance regulations are going to continue to become more stringent as the global economy grows. Both executives spoke about the challenges that global businesses face in managing their enterprises to meet increasing regulations and compliance standards for risk assessment and audit solutions, as well as solutions that companies can employ in order to meet these increasing demands.
McClure described how solutions that provide centralized automation for collecting, analyzing and reporting audit data combined with risk intelligence added to security systems help customers provide timely audit results and meet overlapping internal governance and external compliance regulations.
“McAfee risk and compliance solutions empower your enterprise to achieve and sustain compliance through a risk-based approach for automating compliance processes,” said McClure. “These solutions remove the difficulty in meeting mandated deadlines for compliance regulations.”
Tyco’s Fredriksen revealed how, as it works across 60 countries and multiple business units, Tyco has developed broad-based risk and compliance strategies to meet increasing internal and external regulations. He shared Tyco’s evaluation process for risk assessment and audit solutions, and how these solutions, coupled with McAfee® products, streamline and simplify disparate compliance requirements across regions and countries.
“In today’s global economy companies must meet compliance requirements in numerous countries, and at the same time do more with fewer resources,” said Fredriksen. “McAfee risk and compliance solutions have enabled Tyco to consolidate multiple disparate products to a unified solution for vulnerability management, risk correlation and policy auditing. Moreover, we have been able to significantly reduce time spent on auditing from thousands of hours to days by automating audit processes.”
This year’s Gartner Compliance and Risk Management Summit theme is Inflection Point for Business Value. The summit aims to provide attendees with the direction and tools to maximize their Governance, Risk and Compliance programs.
