McAfee acquires NitroSecurity to bolster enterprise offerings

Simon Quicke
McAfee has acquired NitroSecurity, which specialises in security and information management, to bolster its enterprise product line sealing a relationship with the firm that stretches back more than three years.

The privately-held NitroSecurity has been a McAfee security innovation alliance partner for the past three years and its NitroView Enterprise Security manager product is already integrated into its new owner's management platform.

"The integration of these solutions gives our enterprise users complete visibility--via a single management console--into their endpoint assets, underlying network infrastructure, specific security threats and risks, and system vulnerabilities across the entire IT environment," said Stuart McClure, general manager and senior vice president, risk & compliance business unit at McAfee.

"Senior executives, business managers, and IT managers can leverage this information to more rapidly assess their risk profile and security posture and analyze and institute a range of corrective actions, such as issuing new configurations, implementing new policies, and deploying more recent software updates," he added.

The recent pressure on security vendors has been to deliver complex protection but in a simple interface and McClure said that the acquisition would ensure that it had robust management tools combined with greater visibility of threats for users.
