McAfee and Adobe to Provide Integrated Security Solutions

Posted by at 11:51 am on September 28, 2009

McAfee and Adobe Systems Incorporated   today announced a global alliance partnership to jointly deliver new solutions that will offer more comprehensive security to both companies’ customers.

Together, McAfee and Adobe will deliver an integrated Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Enterprise Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution to expand the reach of data protection beyond the enterprise boundaries. The combination of McAfee’s strength in policy-based data classification with Adobe’s leadership in policy-based document protection will allow organizations to more easily secure critical business information such as intellectual property or regulatory compliance data. With this new solution, organizations worldwide can ensure that access control to sensitive information is automatically applied based on classification of the data and enforce corporate governance policies to reduce costly information loss.

“We are excited about the potential that this partnership can bring to our joint customers and partners,” said Gerhard Watzinger, general manager of McAfee’s data protection business unit. “Both McAfee and Adobe serve millions of consumers and the world’s largest enterprises. By combining our efforts in the way information is handled and secured, our customers’ data will be better protected.”

“At Adobe, our goal is to provide our customers with the most effective and reliable means to securely collaborate and exchange information,” said, Kumar Vora, vice president and general manager for LiveCycle at Adobe. “We are pleased to work with McAfee to jointly deliver the latest, proven solutions that help protect consumers and enterprises from security threats.”

Further, as part of the partnership, McAfee has made a free diagnostic tool, McAfee Security Scan, available as an optional download to customers when installing Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player software from Adobe.com. The McAfee tool enables consumers to easily check for anti-virus software and firewall protection on their computers. When the scan is complete, users see a report detailing the presence and status of security protection, and are presented with special offers for McAfee security software, including McAfee Anti-Virus, McAfee Internet Security, McAfee Total Protection, and McAfee Family Protection.

Customers can learn more about the benefits of the joint integrated solutions at McAfee’s upcoming annual security conference, FOCUS 09. Adobe and McAfee experts will lead breakout sessions on Data Loss Prevention and Enterprise Rights Management. Adobe is a silver level sponsor at FOCUS 09, which will take place October 6-9 at the Palazzo Resort-Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas.
