SentringoTaken Under McAfee's Wing

McAfee, on Thursday announced the acquisition of database security company Sentrigo for an undisclosed sum.

Barely weeks after the security company brought into the Intel fold, McAfee is still hunting for new ventures.

McAfee has been working with Sentrigo on an OEM basis since 2010 and previously as part of its Security Innovation Alliance. Now the California-based company will be an extension of McAfee and report to Stuart McClure, senior vice president and general manager of McAfee's risk and compliance division.

"The integration of Sentrigo with McAfee will provide customers with the highest level of security across their database environments and allow companies to rapidly deploy a database security strategy in a cost effective manner," said Dave DeWalt, president of McAfee.

"The regular stream of public breach announcements is evidence that we must all do much more to protect mission-critical database environments," added Nathan Shuchami, chief executive of Sentrigo.

"As part of McAfee, Sentrigo will be in a position to deliver these best-of-breed solutions to address a much broader range of customer's database security and compliance challenges."

The acquisition is expected to be completed in April this year.
