McAfee bolsters risk management with Preventsys buy

Compliance alliance

Net security firm McAfee has acquired risk management and security compliance firm Preventsys for an undisclosed amount.

The deal, announced Tuesday, is designed to enhance McAfee's risk management portfolio while helping it tap into the growing market for products that help corporates establish compliance with stricter corporate governance regulations - such as Sarbannes-Oxley, that requires companies that trade in the US to verify the integrity of financial systems.

Preventsys' Security Risk Management System is designed to consolidate vulnerability, configuration and threat data from multi-vendor tools into an enterprise dashboard. The software also automates the security compliance reporting process.

McAfee said acquiring the technology will allow it to help companies reduce the complexity of managing their security. ®
