Agiliance RiskVision Connector for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Platform Achieves McAfee Compatible Status


Agiliance Marries Real-Time Automated Controls for Risk Scoring and Compliance with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® Platform Asset Data and Dashboards

San Jose, Calif. – October 11, 2010 – Agiliance Inc., the leading independent provider of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced that the Agiliance RiskVisionTM Connector for McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® has been designated McAfee Compatible. This new integration extends Agiliance’s partnership with McAfee, as the RiskVision solution now integrates with both McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO™) software and McAfee® Vulnerability Manager. Agiliance is a Technology Partner in the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) Program as well as a McAfee Sales Teaming Partner.

The McAfee portfolio of products automates the collection, testing and enforcement of security controls throughout the enterprise. Agiliance enables highly scalable, quickly deployable, organization-wide risk, compliance and security management—in real-time. The combination of Agiliance RiskVision with McAfee ePO software and McAfee Vulnerability Manager provides security professionals and executives with a unique multi-vendor, closed-loop risk management solution for risk-based security with exceptional accuracy and coverage.

“We are pleased that Agiliance has expanded their integration portfolio to now also include the McAfee ePO platform,” said Ed Barry, senior director of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. “Agiliance’s integrated and solution-centric approach enables mutual customers, such as RSA Insurance, to enjoy lower cost savings and increased compliance.”

“As a McAfee and Agiliance joint customer, we are pleased that these two companies partnered to offer such a valuable solution to the market,” said Malcolm Craig, information security and compliance manager, RSA Insurance. “We found Agiliance to have more out-of-the-box connectors and multi-vendor support for automated compliance assessments than any other GRC vendor. The connector for the McAfee ePO platform integrates McAfee asset and secure configuration checks with Agiliance risk and compliance summary reports to provide accurate controls testing and to lower our maintenance costs.”

“The open approach to security management of McAfee, and its partnering approach to delivering end-to-end customer solutions, is a unique one-two punch in the industry,” said Arti Raman, vice president of products and alliances at Agiliance. “The new security mandate is to manage risk in real-time. It requires merging threat and compliance information from physical and virtualized environments into a unified data-to-dashboard business-risk view. Agiliance’s bidirectional, McAfee Compatible, RiskVision Connector for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator gives customers a continuous, true risk posture, allowing them to make effective investments and manage performance. In addition, customer-led integrations to McAfee products like McAfee® Policy Auditor, McAfee® Risk Advisor, McAfee® Endpoint Encryption and McAfee® VirusScan® Enterprise are working today to further our commitment across a wider array of McAfee security management solutions.”
