McAfee SIA is the security industryâ€™s premier technology-partnering program, designed to deliver integrated solutions that maximize the value of existing customer investments.

The new partners that have joined the McAfee SIA program are:
In addition, InfoReliance, Lieberman Software, Norse Corp., nPulse Technologies, PIOLINK, Trapezoid, and White Cyber Knight (WCK) now have â€œMcAfee Compatibleâ€ solutions and have been promoted to Technology Partner status in the McAfee SIA program.
