Intel Security outlines strategy for protecting new digital economy
Intel Security enhances its unified defense architecture in a bid to safeguard against threats to trust, time and money.
Intel Security has announced a new strategy by means of an enhanced unified defense architecture, which has been designed from the ground up, to give more power to organisations. It has done this to increase the effective protection of today's new digital economy which consists of three main factors: trust; time and money.
Intel says that world's economy is no longer a physical one and that the growing number of interconnected networks and systems puts everyone (including organisations) at the risk of cybercriminals forcing the users and businesses to go on a defensive.
“Cybercriminals are forcing cybersecurity companies to re-draft the rules of engagement for defending the civilised world; to effectively counteract them, we have to abandon old security playbooks to become more unpredictable and collaborative and make cyber defense a priority,” said Chris Young, senior vice president and general manager of Intel Security Group. “Our strategic charter is simple, yet disruptive: integrate, automate and orchestrate the threat defense lifecycle to drive better security outcomes – ultimately reducing more risk, faster and with fewer resources.”
Intel Security's new unified architecture is basically enabled by four key integrated systems: Dynamic Endpoint, Pervasive Data Protection, Data Center and Cloud Defense, and Intelligent Security Operations. All of these systems work together in a deeply integrated manner to multiply the effectiveness of the system as whole.
Along with the above, Intel Security also announced its intent to open the McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL) to enable the industry with a concrete solution to disrupt the cyberattacker's advantage.
Popular consumer antivirus company Avast would acquire its rival AVG for $1.3 billion, in an all cash deal. And the first thought that crossed my mind was whether antivirus companies mattered anymore. But on deeper pondering and discussing with a few individuals in the industry, what I realised was that it isn’t a straightforward question to answer.

Growing popularity of social networks has a huge number of children in India creating their accounts on Facebook even before they turn 13, a study by Intel Security claimed today. The social media platform has set 13 as the minimum age for a user to create an account.
