Most organizations deploy security products from multiple vendors that do not interact with each other. In today’s fast evolving threat landscape, this not only increases operational costs, it may even increase risk. Security challenges now require open, collaborative approaches to detect threats, reduce risk, and ensure compliance.
The McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) is a technology partnering program that:
Central to McAfee’s relationship with each SIA partner is at least one customer use case. Use cases are driven by the needs of mutual customers and are built around innovative integration ideas. Use cases improve threat visibility and create powerful new security behaviors and workflows. For example, an SIA partner might link their real-time monitoring and threat detection with our incident response and compliance reporting.
McAfee SIA partners are screened for leadership and innovation in their respective market segments. With scores of vendors already on board, SIA is fast becoming the security industry’s premier technology-partnering program. For a brief profile of the services each partner provides, browse the SIA Partner Directory.
Each partner begins as an Associate Partner. After implementing at least one use case and completing McAfee integration testing, the partner is promoted to Technology Partner status and the joint solution receives the “McAfee Compatible” logo.
To learn more about the SIA program, read the SIA Brochure, see the SIA Program Summary or browse the Alphabetical SIA Partner Directory, our catalog of partner offerings that work with and complement McAfee security solutions.
The McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) is a technology partnering program created to help accelerate the development of interoperable security products and to simplify the integration of these products within complex customer environments. Working together, McAfee and its partners deliver solutions more comprehensive than those available from any single vendor.
If you are a security or compliance solutions vendor, you, too, can integrate with McAfee’s industry-leading open architecture and reach over 35,000 organizations that have already invested in McAfee’s Security and Risk Management (SRM) solutions. Participation in the SIA allows you to extend your reach and create new revenue opportunities by adding complementary capabilities not found in McAfee’s core offerings. The program also offers joint marketing, lead generation, and channel synergies that help create a win-win scenario for you, our customers, our channel partners, and McAfee.
Today’s sophisticated attacks can cause business disruptions, damage brand reputation, and create legal liabilities. Large organizations deploy solutions from multiple vendors because the truth is no single vendor can meet all of their security and compliance needs. But today’s security threats and economic challenges demand that products from multiple vendors interoperate to provide better protection, reduce operational costs, and streamline the compliance lifecycle.
