Intel-owned McAfee, one of the world’s largest security technology companies, is acquiring Sentrigo, a leading provider of database security and compliance, assessment, monitoring and intrusion prevention solutions.

McAfee entered into an OEM relationship with Sentrigo in 2010 to offer Sentrigo database security products under the McAfee brand name.

Sentrigo’s solution, called Hedgehog, uses a very small footprint, non-intrusive agent that has complete visibility into all database activity, whether it originates by outsiders or privileged insiders, and does so without impacting database performance.

Following the acquisition, the Israeli-based Sentrigo team will report to the McAfee Risk & Compliance business unit.

McAfee’s products and services aim to secure systems, networks, and mobile devices around the world, allowing users safer connections to the Internet, and to browse and shop the Web more securely.
