Citadel specialises in security standards and regulatory compliance, as well as what it calls "vulnerability management solutions" which include finding and patching security holes in networks.
McAfee hopes that the acquisition of Texas-based Citadel will help the company better serve clients in highly regulated sectors such as hospitals and government offices.
"With the addition of Citadel, we can offer our customers the major components of vulnerability assessment, policy compliance enforcement and remediation, building on our suite of existing products," said McAfee president Kevin Weiss.
The company also hopes that the purchase will allow it to bundle the existing McAfee products and the Citadel suite, providing a more attractive package for businesses.
"McAfee has an excellent opportunity to deliver unmatched security to its
enterprise business users, helping them to save time and money, mitigate risk
and comply with corporate and government mandates," said Citadel chief executive
McAfee expects the acquisition to close by the end of the year.
