    McAfee and RSA from Technology Partnership

    Security Leaders Team Up to Provide Customers with Interoperable Solutions to Address Dynamic Security Challenges

    RSA® CONFERENCE, SAN FRANCISCO - February 15, 2011 -

    McAfee, Inc. (NYSE: MFE) and RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) today 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.

    "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 of 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 organizations 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 recognize 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 organizations take a risk-based approach to apply business-aligned security controls in the enterprise."

    Companies Enhancing Endpoint Security and Vulnerability Management Capabilities

    McAfee and RSA today 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 organizations with enhanced management of organizational risk by proactively identifying, tracking and mitigating critical infrastructure vulnerabilities and security events.

    The companies will also integrate ePolicy Orechestrator 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 analyzed 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 unauthorized access and loss or theft of sensitive data from endpoint devices.

    Future Areas of Inventive Collaboration in Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Standards, Fraud Mitigation and Risk and Compliance Management

    McAfee and RSA plan to develop additional joint security solutions, share knowledge and develop best practices in key technology areas featuring integrated and interoperable versions of their products. Future development projects include:

    • Develop industry standards and best practices for DLP solutions. The companies are working together to facilitate sharing of data across DLP platforms. The effort is designed to broaden the DLP ecosystem and enable organizations to leverage existing investments in security and risk management solutions.
    • Collaboration and knowledge-sharing between McAfee® Global Threat Intelligence™ and the RSA FraudActionTM Research Lab and Anti-Fraud Command Center to exchange threat intelligence feeds of the latest phishing, Trojan and malware activity. The information in the feeds will be used in products and services from both security leaders to further enhance the real-time threat protection, response and mitigation to financial institutions, large enterprises and government cyber defense teams world-wide.
    • Joint development of solutions for governance, risk and compliance featuring technology from the RSA Archer eGRC platform and McAfee Risk and Compliance solutions, including McAfee Policy Auditor and McAfee Vulnerability Manager. The collaboration will help organizations take a more holistic view to risk mitigation as it pertains to business critical assets, corporate policies and regulatory compliance.
