McAfee has completed its acquisition of Portsmouth, NH based NitroSecurity, a privately held provider of high-performance security information and event management (SIEM) solutions.
The acquisition, originally announced on Oct. 4, will help McAfee expand its Risk and Compliance and Global Threat Intelligence capabilities.
NitroSecurity has been a McAfee Security Innovation Alliance partner for the past three years, and its NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) is already integrated with McAfee’s 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,” noted Stuart McClure, GM and SVP for McAfee’s Risk & Compliance Business Unit, in a blog post. “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.”
McAfee will host a Webcast on December 7 at 9:00 am Pacific Time to discuss the acquisition, and more information is available on the McAfee NitroSecurity acquisition web page.
