McAfee picks first Australian tech partner

Makes customers of both companies safer.

Sydney-based Tier-3 has become the first Australian firm to join McAfee's Security Innovation Alliance, a technology partnership that aims to make security products more interoperable.

Peter Woollacott, co-founder and CEO of Tier-3, said the deal will benefit customers of both companies.

"[The partnership] will enable us to more easily collect information from McAfee's suite of infrastructure technologies. For McAfee customers, Huntsman is going to pull together information from outside McAfee-centric data sources so they can get a far more complete picture of what is going on in their enterprise.

"The sum of the parts is going to be exceeded by the overall benefit," said Woollacott.

The Huntsman product, according to Woollacot, analyses data from across an enterprise and automatically identifies potential risks.

"In a security or compliance or data protection perspective, Huntsman collects massive amount of log data - from infrastructure, operating systems, applications and databases - it enables you to analyse it automatically and then prioritises the alerts that are relevant to you," he said.

Huntsman is currently being used by Australian Defence, UK intelligence agency, St George Westpac, ING and Telstra.
