McAfee announced it will acquire Sentrigo, a privately owned vendor of database security solutions with U.S. corporate headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The partnership will enable customers to protect their mission-critical database environments, according to the announcement. Following completion of the acquisition, expected to close in April 2011, Sentrigo’s team will report to Stuart McClure, SVP and GM of the McAfee risk and compliance business unit. Santa Clara-based McAfee, just acquired by Intel for $7.68 billion, has bought 10 security companies in the past five years, making it the world’s largest security technology company.
