In addition, the following 8 partners now have “McAfee Compatible” solutions and have been promoted to Technology Partner status in the program. McAfee has worked with these partners to validate their integrations for their adherence to compatibility best practices.
McAfee has also welcomed the following five partners to its Sales Teaming Program. Partners in the Sales Teaming Program complement the McAfee product portfolio, and enable the McAfee sales force and channel to drive more complete security solution relationships with enterprise customers.
Across North America, Europe, the Middle East and Australia, McAfee now has 80 SIA partners committed to helping customers drive operational savings with McAfee Compatible products. To learn more about how partners are working with McAfee, please visit the SIA partner directory page.
“The Security Innovation Alliance is the leading open security platform in the industry, and is proving its success in the development of interoperable security solutions,” said Ed Barry, senior director of the McAfee SIA partner program. “In comparison with last year, we have now more than doubled the number of partners in SIA. Our customers and channel partners can now rely on a partner ecosystem which delivers solutions far more comprehensive than any that can be obtained from any single security vendor.”
In support of the SIA partner ecosystem, McAfee is hosting its second annual SIA Developer Conference in Las Vegas today. The Developer Conference will be held in conjunction with FOCUS 09, McAfee’s user conference, which is being sponsored in part by over 20 SIA partners showcasing completed and upcoming integrations. As part of the Developer Conference, McAfee will also be announcing the winner of its 2009 SIA Most Innovative Partner Award to the SIA partner that today best leverages the McAfee security and compliance management platform to deliver joint customer value. The winner will be highlighted on the McAfee SIA Web site after the announcement is made.
To further articulate SIA’s value, on October 9 at FOCUS 09, SIA Partners Absolute Software, ArcSight and SignaCert will join McAfee for a panel discussion titled, “Visibility and Velocity—Unlocking the Value of Integrated Solutions.” This session will discuss how McAfee works with multiple vendors to integrate products to lower the cost of ownership and operation through integration; provide an open platform for security integration; and leverage this open platform to deliver cross-product integration benefits.
