McAfee has announced that nine additional companies have joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance, a technology partnering program that accelerates the development of interoperable security products and simplifies the integration of those products within complex customer environments.

Four of these new partners – High Tower, LogRhythm, SenSage and Skybox Security – and four previously announced SIA partners-Absolute Software, Bit9, LogLogic and Q1 Labs-are showcasing their support for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) to the public this week. Also joining SIA are partners AccessData, Intellitactics, SecureLogix and StillSecure.
Joe Gottlieb, vice-president of corporate strategy and technology alliances at McAfee. "Together, McAfee and its partners are building and testing a wide array of solutions that deliver greater protection, reduced risk and increased compliance."
McAfee ePO lets enterprises and governments centrally manage security and compliance products from multiple vendors, offering unprecedented cost savings and return on investment.  With this announcement, a total of 18 companies will be using McAfee's software development kit and application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate with ePO, leveraging the first interoperability category made available to partners through the program.
