Trustware™, a leader in security technologies that protect a PC by isolating threats, today announced that it has joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) partner program. The McAfee SIA program promotes innovative integrations between security vendors and provides customers with solutions that extend beyond the core McAfee offerings. Under the McAfee SIA program, Trustware will integrate its BufferZone technology with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® (McAfee ePO™) software, enabling mutual customers to manage BufferZone deployment, configuration, rule creation, and reporting while leveraging existing investments in McAfee technology to monitor, scan, and remediate BufferZone’s virtual environment.
Trustware is a pioneer in securing desktop applications through virtualization. Trustware’s patented technology, BufferZone, seamlessly virtualizes browsers and other applications and isolates untrusted programs, including zero-day threats, which propagate via Internet-facing applications. By isolating unauthorized programs and files within its secure environment, BufferZone prevents any hidden threats from monitoring or damaging your PCs and networks.
McAfee ePO platform is the first that lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment. With more than 40,000 organizations and managing over 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners extend their reach and create complementary functionality.
“The sophistication and proliferation of today’s Web-borne threats necessitate additional levels of protection at the endpoint,” said Trustware CEO Jim Penosky. “Integrating Trustware’s threat isolation capabilities with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator software will ensure that enterprises can complement their investments in McAfee technology and increase protection for Internet-facing applications, such as browsers, in a scalable and cost-effective manner.”
“We are pleased to welcome Trustware into the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance,” said Ed Barry, Vice President of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. “Our customers face growing challenges in defending themselves against web-based exploits. We expect that Trustware’s upcoming integration of Bufferzone technology with our ePolicy Orchestrator platform will become a powerful tool in their defensive arsenal."
