FOCUS 08, LAS VEGAS - Oct. 20, 2008—McAfee, Inc. (NYSE: MFE) today announced that three of its current McAfeeÒ Security Innovation Alliance™ (SIA) partners, ArcSight, Application Security, Inc. and SenSage, have passed compatibility testing. These innovative joint solutions will help mutual customers improve their security and compliance while lowering operational costs.
ArcSight now integrates with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® (ePO™) to enable closed-loop security monitoring, log management and policy enforcement. By passing alerts generated from correlated events into ePO, the ArcSight SIEM Platform drives the quick detection of security threats, compliance violations and policy breaches, improving the context for targeted countermeasure, audit and remediation functions provided by McAfee security solutions. Application Security now enables joint customers to view and report on database vulnerabilities, threats and events from the ePO console, and SenSage now provides in-depth reporting on log data from virtually any McAfee product and publishes reports directly into ePO dashboards.
To stimulate further innovation and interoperability, McAfee is also hosting its first SIA Developer Conference today, a one-day event being held in Las Vegas. As part of the Developer Conference, McAfee will be announcing the winner of its 2008 Most Innovative Technology Partner Award to the SIA partner that best leverages the McAfee security and compliance management platform to deliver joint customer value. The winner will be highlighted on the McAfee SIA Web site later today at www.mcafee.com/sia. The SIA Developer’s conference is being held in conjunction with FOCUS 08, McAfee’s user conference sponsored in part by 19 SIA partners who will either showcase their completed integrations or speak about their upcoming integrations.
In addition, McAfee has added six new partners to the SIA program, including Alcatel-Lucent, Centrify, netForensics, Prevari, Secure Elements and SPYRUS. “McAfee is investing in the SIA program to help position both McAfee and our partners for future growth,” said Joe Gottlieb, vice president of corporate strategy and technology alliances, McAfee. “We have also recently extended the program to include partners that provide authentication technologies that supplement McAfee’s data protection products. Through interoperability testing, we can together help our customers drive operational savings with ‘McAfee Compatible’ products. This makes it easier for businesses to improve their protection, manageability and overall return on their security investment with faster deployment times and faster time-to-value.”
The SIA program accelerates the development of interoperable security products and simplifies the integration of those products within complex customer environments. Through the program, these companies will integrate with McAfee ePO software, McAfee’s industry-leading security and compliance management platform, and/or McAfee Endpoint Encryption software, an enterprise-wide security solution that uses powerful encryption and strong access control to prevent unauthorized data access on desktops, laptops, and Tablet PCs as well as smartphones and PDAs.
