McAfee today announced that it has acquired Preventsys, a leading authority in security risk management and automated security compliance reporting.
The addition of Preventsys’ award-winning security risk management and compliance solution to McAfee’s proactive enterprise security technology will further advance McAfee in its ability to help companies reduce the complexity of managing their security.
Preventsys has pioneered an advanced Security Risk Management System for large companies that need to proactively protect confidential customer and company information, ensure high availability of critical IT assets, and easily communicate security compliance to executive management.
Preventsys currently provides the only solution that consolidates vulnerability, configuration and threat data from multi-vendor tools into an enterprise dashboard and automates the security compliance reporting process.
“McAfee’s acquisition of Preventsys fulfills a key component of our risk management and compliance strategy, which is based on helping our customers leverage their existing security technologies,” said Ken Gonzalez, vice president of corporate development, McAfee. “With Preventsys technology, we can help our customers satisfy regulatory requirements for automated compliance reporting, while leveraging existing McAfee technologies such as McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and Foundstone.”
“We see an opportunity to bring automated security compliance reporting to McAfee’s enterprise customers,” said Patrick Harr, chief executive officer for Preventsys. “It is the only solution that can consolidate multi-vendor assessment information and be easily integrated into a user’s new or existing security tools without ever having to change the security process or reports. This will decrease the time and costs associated with manual auditing and compliance reporting.”
Will McAfee improve their security solution now that they acquired Preventsys? And how long until we will see this improvement?
