"McAfee is a dynamic leader in this industry and has a clear understanding of the value of integrating valuable partner technology into the overall enterprise solution in order to achieve a more complete security offering for customers."

McAfee ePO software is the first platform 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 35,000 customers managing security and compliance on more than 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners to extend their reach and create complementary functionality.
