McAfee Completes Acquisition Of NitroSecurityMcAfee Completes Acquisition Of NitroSecurity
NitroSecurity has been a McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partner for three years
December 1, 2011
Today, McAfee completed its acquisition of privately-held NitroSecurity, an enterprise-class security and information management (SIEM) security vendor. I’ll be talking more about this acquisition with Ken Levine, chairman, president and chief executive officer, NitroSecurity, during a McAfee Webcast December 7 at 9:00 am Pacific Time.

NitroSecurity is a leader in the 2011 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM. They have been a McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partner for the past three years and their NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) is already integrated with our security management platform, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO™) software. I’m excited about this acquisition because the integration of these solutions gives our enterprise users complete visibility—via a single management console—into their endpoint assets, underlying network infrastructure, specific security threats and risks, and system vulnerabilities across the entire IT environment. Senior executives, business managers, and IT managers can leverage this information to more rapidly assess their risk profile and security posture and analyze and institute a range of corrective actions, such as issuing new configurations, implementing new policies, and deploying more recent software updates.
The addition of NitroSecurity products and technology to the existing McAfee portfolio will enable us to provide customers with the following benefits:
The most comprehensive and robust security management solutions in the market today
The fastest performing SIEM solution available for mid-sized to Fortune 500 companies. NitroSecurity’s solutions are easy to install and capable of collecting, analyzing, benchmarking, and reporting larger amounts of security information faster than any other vendor due to its highly scalable, patented database engine.
An integrated solution with advanced correlation capabilities to provide greater visibility and situational awareness across your organization. The existing integration with NitroView ESM allows the McAfee ePO platform to view and correlate events, activities, and logs created by networks, databases, and applications so you can rapidly implement a range of risk monitoring and mitigation actions.
