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 Orchestrator 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.
