Security software firm, McAfee, has announced a raft of new partners as part of its Security Innovation Alliance.
McAfee yesterday announced six new partners to join its alliance which is designed to deliver integrated solutions which improve visibility and reduce the time it takes to resolve security problems, while also lowering costs.
The alliance partners include Apperian, Cylance, Norse, nPulse Technologies, RouteWorks Services and Topia Technology.
InfoReliance, Norse, nPulse, PIOLINK, Trapezoid, White Cyber Knight and Lieberman Software have also been promoted to technology partner status in the program.
McAfee has also welcomed Apperian, and Norse to its sales teaming program.
Partners in the Sales Teaming Program complement the firm's product portfolio and enable the sales force and channel to provide more complete security solution relationships with enterprise customers.
McAfee senior channels director, APAC, Craig Nielsen, said industry partners working together were better able to tackle the evolving cyber-crime landscape.
“The continued growth of SIA as an integrated security management and open system means McAfee and its SIA partners can simplify integration and management of the wide range of security products we provide to our customers," he said.
"We’re pleased to welcome Cylance on board to share their expertise with the SIA.”
Avecto enterprise vice-president, Paul Kenyon, said he understood the benefits of the programme as current partners.
“Avecto Privilege Guard’s tight integration with McAfee ePO has meant that global organisations have been able to demonstrably experience the benefits of least privilege through a trusted, market leading security platform,” he said.
“As the only accredited privilege management partner of McAfee’s SIA program, we have been able to cement our engagements with global brands and enterprises, enabling them to maximise their Avecto/McAfee investment to balance user empowerment, security and compliance.”
