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) provides our customers with integrated security solutions that allow them to resolve more threats faster with fewer resources. This is accomplished through close collaboration with third-party partners in the SIA Program. It is a critical component to empowering our customers to address all stages of the threat defense lifecycle.

The McAfee Security Innovation Alliance is a technology partnering program that:

  • Accelerates the development of interoperable security products.
  • Simplifies the integration of these products with complex customer environments.
  • Provides a truly integrated, connected security ecosystem to maximize the value of existing customer investments, improve efficiency, maximize protection, and reduce operational costs.

Driving Technology Leadership

McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partners are screened for innovation, strategic value, and market leadership in their respective market segments that complement the McAfee solution portfolio.

Central to our relationship with each 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.

Only after the partner completes extensive McAfee engineering testing, will the integrated product receive the McAfee Compatible designation. This expanded portfolio of tightly integrated solutions is part of an extended security system that helps protect, detect, and correct threats faster and more effectively than any single solution.

Partnership Integration Tracks & Levels

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 protect, detect, and correct threat defense lifecycle.

The Security Innovation Alliance 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. We work with innovative security software vendors who have products that can enhance, augment, strengthen, and broaden the core functionality of our advanced, diverse product portfolio. Working together, McAfee and its partners deliver solutions more comprehensive than those available from any single vendor.

Participation in the Security Innovation Alliance allows partners to extend their reach and create new revenue opportunities by adding complementary capabilities not found in our core offerings.

To help you achieve success, the SIA Program provides everything you need —expert technical support, tools to facilitate integration development, McAfee product access for joint solution development, comprehensive product training, and global go to market activities. As a trusted brand and market leader, McAfee can help you open up new market opportunities so that you can grow your market presence as we help our customers strengthen their security environment.
