alan-kessler-ceo-vormetricEnterprise data security provider Vormetric has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) Program as a Sales Teaming Partner, the company announced during the McAfee FOCUS 2014 conference in Las Vegas. The addition of Vormetric’s solutions to the McAfee security portfolio aims to improve organizational compliance and regulatory issues while creating an added layer of protection against potential data breaches.

Vormetric also completed integration with McAfee Database Activity Monitoring and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager as part of its new relationship with the company. The Vormetric solution is expected to extend the protection offered by the McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Databases and increase visibility, threat protection and audit reporting of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, according to the company. Similarly, the Vormetric Transparent Encryption solution will enable data-at-rest encryption and additional user access controls to create an audit trail of authorized and unauthorized file access.

“This relationship and integration provides our joint customers with a more complete solution for protecting sensitive information within their databases and file systems by adding data-at-rest encryption, key management, privileged user access controls and enhancing the information available for analysis by McAfee Enterprise Security Manager,” said Ed Barry, vice president, Global Technology Alliances at McAfee, part of Intel Security, in a statement.

Vormetric’s compatibility with the McAfee SIA is another step in fulfilling the promise made by Intel President Renée James during FOCUS to provide customers with more integrated solutions. McAfee recently released its Threat Intelligence Exchange solution, a new framework that collects threats and acts as a unified defense system for enterprises, according to the company. The new solution also integrates with McAfee’s Security Information and Event Management solution to increase security intelligence and reduce response time.

“We are excited by this new relationship with McAfee, and honored to be selected as a Sales Teaming Partner,” said Alan Kessler, CEO of Vormetric. “With McAfee Compatibility status ensuring interoperability, and the ease of doing business provided by the Sales Teaming Partner program, this is a big win for our joint customers.”
