Sometimes, it’s better to buy, then it is to build.
That’s the decision that Intel’s (NASDAQ:INTC) McAfee security decision has made when it comes to database security. McAfee today announced the acquisition of privately held database security vendor Sentrigo. Financial terms of the deal are not being publicly disclosed.
Sentrigo’s solutions include the Hedgehog Enterprise product which is a Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) solution that provides virtual patching for database deployments. Sentrigo also developers the Hedgehog DBscanner which is a vulnerability assessment solution for databases.
“We believe Sentrigo has the DNA to become the market leader for cloud security of databases,” Martin Ward, senior director, risk and compliance product marketing told InternetNews.com. “The Sentrigo architecture is unique in the database security market, utilizing autonomous sensors that can be deployed locally wherever cloud systems are provisioned.”
