McAfee and IBM have announced an extension of their partnership that will see IBM’s Resilient Incident Response Platform (IRP) integrated with McAfee’s Data Exchange Layer (DXL).

By combining IBM’s IRP, a leading platform for automating security incident responses processes, with McAfee’s DXL, Resilient IRP users will be able to access McAfee’s Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) more readily, whilst also improving response times and the ability to respond through connection to McAfee’s ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) platform.

“The integration of the Resilient IRP with DXL, McAfee TIE and McAfee ePO will enable better security intelligence, faster response times and empower security teams to handle threats using automated tasks,” said D J Long, Vice President of Strategic Business Development, McAfee.

“Leveraging the deep portfolio of McAfee security solutions together with Resilient’s industry-leading orchestration capabilities, we can now deliver solutions that enable security teams to work faster and more efficiently.”

The integration will look to improve company’s abilities to deal with cybersecurity threats that have continued to evolve and grow.

According to McAfee’s Labs Quarterly Threats Report, there was a 32% increase in the number of new Malware Samples in Q4 2017, up to 63.4mn. Further, the report also revealed that 35% of cybersecurity professionals claim that they are unable to maintain a team of adequately trained individuals.

“McAfee’s integration helps customers both quickly identify incidents and decisively respond to them,” said Ted Julian, vice president of product management and co-founder, IBM Resilient.

“As security threats become both more numerous and complex, it’s more critical than ever to orchestrate these systems putting the right information, in front of the right person, at the right time and empowering them to act on it.”

The integration, including IBM IRP, McAfee DXL, TIE and ePO platforms is available on IBM’s Security App Exchange.
