DearBytes today announces that it has officially joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) partner program. As a member of the McAfee SIA program, DearBytes will integrate its Bytescan with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), enabling customers to activate strong second opinion anti-malware scanning on their Endpoints, alongside McAfee VirusScan Enterprise.
Bytescan is the advanced second-opinion anti-malware solution of DearBytes, powered by HitmanPro. Its engine is based on forensic behavioral analysis combined with multiple different anti-malware engines, resulting in highly effective on-demand scans. Detected malware by Bytescan is immediately available for analysis by McAfee Labs, which allows for faster detection and removal of malicious software using McAfee VirusScan Enterprise. Erik Remmelzwaal, CEO DearBytes said, "The large amount of malware targeting companies around the world needs a joint effort of security researchers. With the integration of Bytescan into McAfee ePO, organisations can easily implement such a multi-vendor approach to secure their endpoints, managed from one security console."
"We are pleased to welcome DearBytes into the Security Innovation Alliance" said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. "Our joint solution will provide a more robust approach to anti-malware and deliver greater protection, reduced risk, and lower downtime to our mutual customers."
McAfee ePO 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 45,000 customers and managing more than 60 million PCs and servers, this unique platform is helping McAfee SIA partners to extend their reach and create complementary functionality.
