Companies offer integration between ePolicy Orchestrator, RSA Archer and Archer Enterprise Management offering
Security technology company McAfee and RSA, the Security Division of EMC has introduced a new offering based on their existing technology partnership.
The new offering integrates security data from the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator platform (McAfee ePO) with business infrastructure and compliance data in the RSA Archer eGRC Platform and the RSA Archer Enterprise Management offering.
By integrating this security data, customers can better leverage business information together with security data to gain a deeper understanding of risk and compliance issues.
The two companies now offer integrated offerings which help customers to address complex security challenges, lower risk, improve compliance, and ensure data security across the IT infrastructure.
The integrated offering between the RSA Archer eGRC Platform and ePolicy Orchestrator software and other McAfee security management products populate the devices application within RSA Archer with systems in the infrastructure being managed by McAfee ePO and with the integrated offering customers can gain visibility into ownership and relationship to business processes and applications.
McAfee Security Management senior director Dave Anderson said the McAfee and RSA offering provides greater visibility into the state of security and compliance across the enterprise infrastructure and enables a more comprehensive understanding of the business’ risk and compliance posture.
"The integration allows organisations to utilise McAfee security management products to manage system-level security while also incorporating data and findings from those products into their risk and compliance management processes within the RSA Archer eGRC Platform."
RSA senior director David Walter said the integrated offering provides customers the opportunity to improve IT-GRC programs with information from security management processes.
"The Archer eGRC platform understands business criticality – adding this enables customers to prioritize the issues being documented in McAfee ePO against their business objectives. This enables better business decisions about where resources are placed, resulting in an effective risk-based way to respond quickly to new threats, address program deficiencies and reduce vulnerabilities across all domains and lines of business in the enterprise," said Walter.
