McAfee to Acquire Sentrigo

Dave DeWalt, McAfee

McAfee announced today it is looking to buy privately held Sentrigo, a provider of database security and compliance, assessment, monitoring and intrusion prevention solutions.

The proposed transaction will merge best-in-class technologies to stop database attacks, diagnose and assess the database environment, provide complete visibility into all transactions leveraging McAfee and Sentrigo’s Database Audit and Database Activity Monitoring solutions, and leverage Sentrigo’s offering of Virtual Patching.

The integration of Sentrigo with McAfee will give customers the highest level of security across their database environments and allow companies to rapidly deploy a database security strategy in a cost-effective manner, said Dave DeWalt, president of McAfee.

“McAfee is continuing to broaden its security portfolio to now-secure databases, as well as endpoints, networks, email and web. In addition to the acquisition announcement, McAfee is also announcing a complete database security platform which includes products across the McAfee portfolio,” he said.

Upon completion of the proposed acquisition, the Sentrigo team will report to the McAfee Risk & Compliance business unit, headed by Stuart McClure, senior vice president and general manager.

McAfee did not disclose financial terms of the deal.
