This month marks an exciting time in cybersecurity as we witness the re-birth of the industry’s best-known security brand, McAfee!
As an independent company focused solely on cybersecurity, the relentless commitment from our team, new investment, and our belief that “Together is Power”, the new McAfee will expand upon its leading security solutions platform to better enable customers and partners to effectively identify and orchestrate responses to cyber-threats.
When Intel acquired McAfee, we committed to building technologies that link threat intelligence, investigative methods, and orchestrated response capabilities together, all upon open and scalable infrastructures.
At last November’s FOCUS16 conference, we announced that more than 30 partners have integrated or planned integration into our open Data Exchange Layer (DXL), the industry-endorsed communication fabric providing real-time interaction between applications. This is a significant step and we continue progressing towards becoming the standard communication platform for our customers.
In 2017, we celebrate the 27th anniversary of our McAfee Latin America operation. With over 400+ employees in region, McAfee’s strong engineering, sales, services and support teams continue to fuel the company to, together with our channel partners, become the #1 security vendor in the market for our valued customers.
As part of the commitment to Latin America, we have strengthened the team based out of Plano, Texas. This is the largest site for the company in the Americas and key site for our back-office support, finance, channels and many other administrative operations for our entire region. This means you can now find many more regional and global resources that facilitate our partnership.
One of our most powerful tools in Latin America is our Innovation Business Center (IBC) located in Cordoba, Argentina. The site includes over 280 engineers that led the development of groundbreaking solutions such as DXL, SIEM, Endpoint Security 10, Active Response (EDR), Advanced Threat Defense (Sandbox) and Threat Intelligence Exchange. Customers and partners that attend receive first-hand knowledge directly from our product engineers and developers including the latest innovations, product updates, and information that is relevant and customized for you.
Along with the IBC, we have also created four McAfee Experience Rooms in Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Santiago de Chile and Bogota with the sole purpose of providing access to McAfee solutions in action. These Experience Rooms provide you with hands-on workshops in real-time to develop IT security and deployment strategies through use case demonstrations and test environments. All you need to do is reach out to our local team to schedule a visit!
For the last three decades, McAfee has earned the trust of consumers, businesses and government by delivering practical solutions to address cyber threats. Our award winning products and solutions today protect more than 330 million endpoints worldwide, including 87% of the world’s largest banks and Fortune 100 firms.
Our Pledge to You
Over the next year, McAfee’s passion and commitment to our customer and partner community will continue as a standalone company, allowing us to apply greater market focus by investing in platform, operational and technology solutions to better address the cybersecurity landscape. However, we know that no one can fight cybercrime and threats alone.
By working together with other industry providers, we can help orchestrate a safer environment with security that’s truly integrated. So protection, detection, and correction of security threats happen collaboratively and instantaneously.
We will not rest in our quest to protect the safety of our families, our communities, and our nations. Let’s make 2017 a year that we all become stronger. Together is power.
