McAfee and Adobe form security alliance
McAfee and Adobe announced a global alliance partnership to deliver new comprehensive security solutions to both companies’ customers. They will deliver an integrated Data Loss Prevention and Enterprise Digital Rights Management solution to expand the reach of data protection beyond the enterprise boundaries.
The combination of McAfee’s strength in policy-based data classification with Adobe’s leadership in policy-based document protection will allow organizations to ensure that access control to sensitive information is automatically applied based on classification of the data and enforce corporate governance policies to reduce information loss.
Further, as part of the partnership, McAfee has made a free diagnostic tool, McAfee Security Scan, available as an optional download to customers when installing Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player software. It enables consumers to easily check for anti-virus software and firewall protection on their computers.
