Today McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, announced the winners of its distinguished SIA Partner Awards. The awards ceremony, hosted at McAfee’s Americas Partner Summit in Las Vegas, recognized partners who demonstrated the embodiment of innovation, strategic value, and market leadership in their respective market segments that complement the McAfee solution portfolio.
“Today’s businesses are challenged more than ever before to stay ahead of the latest risks and cyberthreats,” said D.J. Long, vice president of strategic business development, McAfee. “McAfee understands that no single cybersecurity company can prevent every possible threat. The McAfee SIA program enables businesses to tap into certified integrated solutions from industry-leading providers to help protect data and minimize risk with fewer resources.”
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 McAfee Security Innovation Alliance DEVCON Awards in the following three categories: Rookie of the Year, Most Innovative Partner of the Year, and SIA Partner of the Year.
Rookie of the Year 2018: Menlo Security
Rookie of the Year criteria include business impact, solution innovation, and program membership under 18 months.
Menlo Security joined SIA in May 2018. Their integration with McAfee Web Gateway was fully completed and certified in just one month! Immediately after certification, Menlo jumped in to support McAfee on a unique project to drive innovation with a mutual customer.
Menlo Security has partnered with McAfee to provide web security that wins against today’s advanced threats. McAfee Web Gateway customers can set up policies to dynamically route web sessions to the Menlo Security Isolation Platform. The enterprise is protected from any potential web threats while the user has a seamless experience with their native browser. The joint solution improves employee productivity by providing safe access to the internet and reduces burden on IT staff who no longer need to maintain restrictive web policies and manage exceptions. The Isolation Platform can also be used to address “air-gap” requirements of certain financial services and government organizations.
Most Innovative Partner of the Year: IBM Security
Criteria for Most Innovative Partner of the Year are based on the design and use of the McAfee ePO software development kit (SDK), McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange, McAfee Data Exchange Layer, and other key McAfee technologies.

Completed and certified integrations with IBM’s Incident Response platform, Resilient include: TIE, DXL, ePO, and ATD completed just last week. ESM is slated for end of September and NSP is in progress. Furthermore, all McAfee Resilient integrations are published on IBM’s AppExchange.
