Intel Security’s new corporate strategy aimed at enabling businesses around the globe to more aggressively and effectively defend against data breaches and targeted attacks.
Through a more integrated and more open security system that unifies the key phases of the threat defense lifecycle, the new strategy focuses on the endpoint and the cloud as the most effective areas for advanced visibility and practical operational control. These control points are enabled by world-class threat detection and analytics.
The strategy also emphasizes a simplified user experience powered by centralized management and a connected architecture across Intel and third-party products. Through this open and integrated system, Intel Security aims to empower organizations to resolve more threats, faster, with fewer resources.
Intel Security will continue to focus on its core strength of protecting organizations against known threats, and is expanding its investment in tools that help detect new threats faster and enable automated workflows to rapidly correct them. By unifying protection, detection and correction with real-time centralized management into an adaptive feedback loop, known as the threat defense lifecycle, security then evolves and learns in an iterative cycle that improves over time. This model helps organizations become more effective at blocking threats, identifying compromises, and implementing remediation as well as countermeasure improvements more quickly.
“The rising volume and complexity of attacks present a vicious cycle of challenges for organizations and makes speed and efficiency critical,” said Chris Young, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel Security Group. “With a rapidly expanding attack surface, and a shortage of relevant talent and expertise, defenders need to win on visibility into events, simplified management, and capabilities that empower teams to close the loop on attacks in progress – faster, more effectively, and with fewer resources.”
In support of the new strategy, Intel Security also announced new solutions: McAfee Endpoint Security 10.X and McAfee Active Response.
