LAS VEGAS -- McAfee (NYSE:MFE) and CommVault (NASDAQ:CVLT):

  • McAfee, Inc. (NYSE: MFE) and CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) today announced a strategic partnership to deliver an integrated data and security management solution built on the two companies respective data management, backup and security expertise.

  • The agreement will provide customers worldwide with access to integrated data and security management technology solutions from both McAfee and CommVault.

  • The solution integrates McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator® (ePO™) software, McAfee’s security risk management platform, with the award-winning CommVault® Simpana® software, which delivers Backup, Replication, Archive, Storage Resource Management and Search capabilities.

  • As part of the partnership, CommVault has also joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee’s technology partnering program, which is designed to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplify the integration of those products with complex customer environments. Additionally, McAfee has joined CommVault’s PartnerAdvantageTM program as a Strategic Partner to help expand product integration efforts, compatibility testing and further align the companies’ go-to-market strategies.

  • The McAfee-CommVault solution will enable mutual customers to monitor corporate data for increased security and compliance with simplified policy management. The integration allows McAfee ePO users to report on the data protection/recovery state of end point clients to identify conditions such as the backup status. When that condition is outside the prescribed protection policy threshold it can trigger an alert notification or report to warn the ePO user. Additional integration features are expected to target expanded software distribution and data leakage profiling using the Simpana Search and eDiscovery features.

  • This partnership highlights the ongoing commitment of both companies to provide customers with powerful solutions that address both security and data backup. The solution will not only help reduce the complexity in customers’ IT environments but also improve protection, compliance and lower the Total Cost of Ownership.
