McAfee buys Preventsys to offer easier security compliance

Antony Savvas

McAfee has acquired Preventsys to allow it to offer customers software to reduce the complexity of managing their security.

Preventsys is a specialist in security risk management and automated security compliance reporting.

Preventsys’ Security Risk Management System is designed for large companies that need to proactively protect confidential customer and company information, ensure availability of critical IT assets, and easily communicate security compliance to executive management.

The product consolidates vulnerability, configuration and threat data from multi-vendor tools into a single enterprise-wide dashboard, and automates the security compliance reporting process.

Ken Gonzalez, McAfee vice president of corporate development, said, “With Preventsys technology, we can help our customers satisfy regulatory requirements for automated compliance reporting, while leveraging existing McAfee technologies such as McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and Foundstone.”

Financial terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.
