McAfee to Acquire NitroSecurity for Cyber Situational Awareness

Intel's McAfee division plans to acquire NitroSecurity, a privately-held company focused on security information and event management (SIEM) solutions that provide visibility and situational awareness to protect critical information and infrastructure. Financial terms were not disclosed.

NitroSecurity identifies, correlates and remediates threats to the network. NitroSecurity's SIEM management, which has already passed integration testing with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), gives customers a single security platform for event analysis and management across the environment. The integration expands the capability of the McAfee ePO platform to view events, activity and logs created by networks, databases and applications.

McAfee said NitroSecurity's technology, combined with its own security management capabilities, will give organizations greater visibility into their endpoint assets, underlying network infrastructure, specific security threats and risks and system vulnerabilities across their entire IT environment.

  • NitroSecurity was founded in 1999 and based in Portsmouth, NH.
