McAfee Enterprise has collaborated with IBM Security to develop a new integrated solution for TD SYNNEX customers to better tackle cloud and endpoint threats.

Available to customers via TD SYNNEX’s IT distribution network, the pair say the offering will provide simplicity, visibility, investigation, remediation and control to protect the global workforce.

Based on integrations between McAfee Enterprise MVISION and IBM Security QRadar products, the solution is the first jointly developed by two vendors collaborating in the TD SYNNEX Cyber Range, a virtual programme to prepare security professionals to respond to threats.

“All businesses deserve vendor-agnostic security that will protect all of their data, no matter where it lives across the IT environment,” commented Kathleen Curry, senior vice president of Global Enterprise Channels at McAfee Enterprise.

“We cultivate relationships with industry leaders like IBM and TD SYNNEX to ensure we’re providing cutting-edge security for our customers and developing important offerings for our distribution partners.”

By integrating QRadar with the MVISION Device-to-Cloud Platform, TD SYNNEX says it can provide customers with increased protection that is powered by connected architecture, analytics, prioritisation of resources, automation, threat detection and event correlation.

McAfee Enterprise’s MVISION portfolio of device-to-cloud security suites is designed to offer users a single point of visibility and control across the entire network, as well as deliver endpoint and cloud security. It’s the first cloud-based product family to protect data across software as a service, Platform-as-a-service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service deployments, from a single, cloud-native enforcement point.

TD SYNNEX says the range seamlessly integrates with QRadar, a leading SIEM platform that provides comprehensive insights to quickly detect, investigate respond to threats, enabling customers to benefit “bi-directionally” from both offerings.

“We launched the TD SYNNEX Cyber Range to arm new and seasoned cybersecurity professionals in the partner channel and the end-user community with the best security education and response procedures,” said Reyna Thompson, senior vice president, Security and Networking at TD SYNNEX.

“We’re thrilled to see our partners at McAfee Enterprise and IBM Security support our efforts in collaborating to create the first joint security solution available to our customers.”
