STAMFORD, CT--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - Protegrity USA, Inc., a leading provider of end-to-end data security solutions, today announced it has joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) partner program. The McAfee SIA program selects companies with innovative technology solutions to accelerate the development of interoperable security products which maximize the value of existing customer investments, reduce implementation time and lower operational costs.

As a McAfee SIA partner, Protegrity plans to integrate its data protection technology with McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® solution, an enterprise-class platform that lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment. Through this partnership, joint customers will benefit from comprehensive visibility and enhanced protection. McAfee customers will have a proven data security partner supporting database, file, and application level data protection at their disposal; and Protegrity customers using ePolicy Orchestrator platform will have a single dashboard that will incorporate audit reports generated on Protegrity data protectors.

"The sophistication of today's security breaches necessitates protection of data that is closest to the transaction point," said Iain Kerr, President and CEO, Protegrity. "Integrating Protegrity's end-to-end encryption capabilities with ePolicy Orchestrator software will ensure that security policies extend to all levels of data within an enterprise in a scalable and cost-efficient way."

"We are excited to add Protegrity as a valued partner to our Security Innovation Alliance Partner Program," said Ed Barry, vice president of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. "Our customers face growing challenges to secure their data and maintain compliance, and this integration will help them extract more value from their McAfee investments."

The Security Innovation Alliance enables McAfee customers to leverage their investments in McAfee while adding complementary capabilities not found in McAfee core offerings and is fast becoming the security industry's premier technology-partnering program. SIA partners are screened for leadership and innovation in their respective market segments. More information on the program can be found here:
