McAfee slaps brand on Secure Computing products

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

McAfee is putting its mark on Secure Computing’s products.  And by that I mean ALL over them.

So, say goodbye to IronMail and hello to McAfee Email Gateway.

So long Webwasher; hey to McAfee Web Gateway.

Sayanara to Sidewinder and howdy to McAfee Firewall Enterprise.

Is it just me, or is something getting lost in the translation here? 

Securify morphs into McAfee User Behavior Analysis. SnapGear is now McAfee UTM Firewall. Secure Web SmartFilter is now just McAfee SmartFilter.

News of these branding changes was sent out to some Secure Computing partners this week. These VARs have been on tenterhooks since McAfee completed its $400-and-something-million buyout of Secure Computing last fall. Stay tuned to for more on the McAfee’s integration plans.
