McAfee Acquires Sentrigo to Enhance Database-Security Portfolio

McAfee acquired Sentrigo, a database security vendor that specializes in vulnerability management and database protection. The acquisition will strengthen McAfee’s security portfolio for databases.

For its first major move as an Intel company, McAfee has acquired database-security company Sentrigo to boost its database offerings.

McAfee announced the acquisition of privately held Sentrigo March 23. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The deal is expected to close as soon as early April, according to McAfee. The Sentrigo team will join McAfee’s Risk & Compliance business unit, headed by Stuart McClure, senior vice president and general manager, McAfee said.

McAfee has its own line of database-security products, including McAfee Vulnerability Manager for Databases, McAfee Database Activity Monitoring and McAfee Integrity Monitoring for Databases. Sentrigo offers Hedgehog, an agent-based software that protects enterprise databases with real-time monitoring, alerts, virtual patching, audit trails and automatic intrusion-prevention capabilities.
