McAfee, Inc. Names Autonomic Software, Inc. the 2011 Security Innovation Alliance Most Innovative PartnerSecurity Leader Is the Only Vendor With a Completely Integrated Solution for AV, Anti Malware, and Patch Manager -- One Data Base, One Console, Same Report Touch and Feel (October 17, 2011)
DANVILLE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/17/11 -- Autonomic Software, Inc., a leading enterprise power reduction, network management and security solutions provider, today announced that McAfee, Inc. has named Autonomic Software the 2011 Security Innovation Alliance, Most Innovative Partner. This prestigious award is presented annually to the McAfee Security Alliance (SIA) Partner that most creatively leverages McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software to deliver joint customer value.
"McAfee's Program is truly unique. They set extremely high standards for partners. We are humbled, and at the same time very proud to be receiving this award," said Tony Gigliotti, President, Autonomic Software.
Autonomic Software has tightly integrated ANSA Patch Manager and ANSA Power Manager into ePO, McAfee's platform that lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors. Autonomic Software utilized the ePO console, database and report generator to create automated solutions that ePO users can easily use without once leaving the ePO console. These integrations allow system administrators to perform two of the most tedious jobs in IT -- securing computers with updated patches and managing the power consumption of PCs. The ANSA integrations for ePO are fully secured by one of the most secure platforms in the industry.
"McAfee is the most secure platform in the world. We wanted that security for Patch Manager and Power Manager. Being fully integrated with ePO, gave us that capability. In turn, having Patch Manager integrated into ePO, puts McAfee in the enviable position of being the only such platform. This is a unique opportunity for Autonomic Software, McAfee and their clients. Both solutions make exemplary use of the ePO console, database, policy setting features, and report generator," continues Gigliotti.
Industry analysts claim that "80% of all intrusion has a fix available." Autonomic Software's powerful patch Manager is tightly integrated into ePO giving system administrators the ability to automatically keep patches current and installed correctly. The patch data that is collected is rolled up into McAfee's Policy Auditor and Risk Advisor, giving administrators a more complete look at the security of the enterprise. Patches can be delivered to PCs, virtual machines and servers. Adobe patches can also be installed and managed with ANSA Patch Manager for ePO.
Power resources are declining just when IT is requiring more and more energy to power their data centers. Power is also costing more and more money. PCs account for 45% of an organizations power usage, in a non-manufacturing environment, so it makes perfect sense to reduce power on the PCs as much as possible. ANSA Power Manager for ePO allows system administrators to manage and conserve power use of PCs. Customers have experienced, on average, a reduction in the PC power bill of 65%. For example; if you have 1,000 computers you will save about $65,000 and 403 tons of CO2 emissions a year. Many power companies have rebate programs that pay for the software -- that means no out-of-pocket-costs for the customer. What's better than saving money and not having to pay for anything? ePO customers also find they can pay the entire yearly costs for McAfee's Endpoint Security Suite with the savings they gain from ANSA Power Manager for ePO. McAfee users on a budget will love these numbers.
"These integrations help us meet our customers' requirements in the areas of power and patch management," said Ed Barry, Vice President, Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. "We are very pleased to give this award to Autonomic Software, as they have certainly earned it," Barry continued.
The Award was presented at the McAfee FOCUS 11 Security Conference in Las Vegas, which brought together security professionals from around the world to share best practices and explore ways to maximize security initiatives.
