Buy for McAfee

Whitelisting vendor acquired

McAfee has announced that it intends to acquire Solidcore Systems for about US$33 million (NZ$56 million) and an additional US$14 million if certain performance targets are met. Solidcore's whitelisting technology can set controls on what applications are allowed to run on a computer. Solidcore's current product line includes S3 Control, software for change control and configuration audit, among other products, such as the Point-of-Sale Check and Control software used in electronic POS devices. McAfee anticipates that Solidcore's whitelisting and security-controls technology, which can assist in compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards for payment-card processing, could also find use in making virtualisation-based environments more secure.
