Skyhigh Security, which includes the McAfee Enterprise security service edge (SSE) portfolio, will introduce its partner program later this year.
Symphony Technology Group (STG) has completed its split of McAfee Enterprise into two organizations with the launch of Skyhigh Security. It offers cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG), zero trust network access (ZTNA), cloud data loss prevention (DLP), remote browser isolation technology, cloud firewall and cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP).
The rest of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye formed Trellix, a $2 billion cybersecurity titan. STG acquired McAfee Enterprise and FireEye last year.

“Skyhigh Security has partners and will have a partner program,” he said. “We intend to maintain all business relationships and contracts so partners will receive the same sales and marketing support from both Skyhigh Security and Trellix. All conditions, partner portals and legal constructs remain unchanged at this time, bringing a seamless transition to the partners and keeping their familiar processes in place to minimize disruption.”
Eric Parizo is managing principal analyst of Omdia Cybersecurity. (Omdia and Channel Futures share a parent company, Informa.) He said STG’s biggest motivation for splitting McAfee Enterprise is likely the potential resale of both companies.
