Combining enterprise security expertise with McAfee Total Protection enables wider market reach for combined product set
McAfee and Wipro Technologies have announced a global alliance. The partnership combines Wipro's Enterprise Security Solutions (ESS) practice, one of the fastest growing and largest existing global security services practices together with McAfee's extensive security product suite including McAfee Total Protection solutions for Endpoint and Network Security.

Wipro will be a global reseller of McAfee products and is also a managed security services partner addressing a market for security systems of more than to $3 billion and growing at the rate of 15 percent annually. A key joint offering is the managed end point security solution based on McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint which enables organizations to adopt a more holistic and effective approach to protecting their endpoints in a comprehensive way and reduce Total Cost of Ownership by up to 40 percent.

'The combination of Wipro's global delivery model with McAfee Total Protection will provide our customers the ability to accelerate their deployments through an integrated security environment,' said Paul Rolfe, vice president worldwide System Integrators and Technology Alliances at McAfee.

Since forming the strategic alliance earlier this year the partnership has already achieved a number of milestones:.

This CoE includes a solution showcase of McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint, McAfee ePolicy Orechestrator, McAfee Endpoint Encryption, McAfee Data Loss Prevention and McAfee Vulnerability Manager with 100 trained / certified consultants. The CoE produces reusable assets and process frameworks that support the joint offerings and further enhance the project results and ensure quicker time to market for customers.

* Launched a service offering that provides consulting, migration and management services to implement McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint security.

* Wipro received its first services contract to implement and roll-out McAfee Total Protection for Endpoint by a global leader of mail and document management solutions.

* Launched a Managed Network Security Platform that delivers 24/7/365 security monitoring and management of a network based upon McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator and Network Intrusion Prevention appliances.
