McAfee And RSA Form Technology Partnership

McAfee, Inc. and RSA, The Security Division of EMC have announced a technology partnership to offer integrated solutions designed to help customers address complex security challenges, lower risk, improve compliance and ensure data security across the IT infrastructure. By formally joining each other's interoperability partner programs, McAfee and RSA are kicking off joint development efforts that will offer customers combined solutions from both industry leaders to harness IT security and event data and to deliver a comprehensive view of security risk.

McAfee and RSA provide integration between McAfee Vulnerability Manager and the RSA Archer eGRC platform to help customers address the business impact, policy enforcement and compliance reporting of enterprise vulnerabilities.

Through RSA's participation in the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance program, the companies plan to deepen the integration between the RSA Archer eGRC platform and the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator platform. The integration will help organisations with enhanced management of organisational risk by proactively identifying, tracking and mitigating critical infrastructure vulnerabilities and security events.

The companies will also integrate ePolicy Orchestrator software and the RSA enVision platform to enhance both the real-time detection and automated response to attacks. RSA and McAfee will both share information about various risks such as security threats, compliance violations, and policy breaches all gathered through their respective platforms. This information will be intelligently analysed to enable customers to respond with targeted countermeasures, audit and remediation controls.
McAfee and RSA also recently completed updated interoperability certification of McAfee Endpoint Encryption and RSA SecurID 800 hybrid authenticators. Making these two leading security products work together is designed to give customers enhanced capabilities to prevent unauthorised access and loss or theft of sensitive data from endpoint devices.

"Addressing new, complex and ever changing threats requires a holistic approach to security that closed environments just can't offer. Our open McAfee platforms enable partners, like RSA, to provide better and more secure customer environments," said Dave DeWalt, President and CEO, McAfee. "By partnering with RSA in the areas of security management and risk and compliance management we are further helping customers to focus on business and more effectively manage risk, improve security operations and create proactive security architectures."

"Security is maturing into a model that requires an intelligent platform that can harness raw IT and security data and deliver a single view of risk to organisations that is correlated and is meaningful to the business," said Art Coviello, Executive Chairman, RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "Effective security management takes an ecosystem of partners who recognise that no single vendor is capable of addressing the amalgam of threats and security challenges faced by enterprises and end users. Together, RSA and McAfee are committing to a path of bringing new ideas, best practices and proven solutions designed to help organisations take a risk-based approach to apply business-aligned security controls in the enterprise."
