Intel/McAfee Targets Embedded, Mobile Security
Just two weeks after Intel finalized its acquisition of McAfee, the processor giant explained its reasoning for dumping nearly $8 billion USD into the purchase during a conference call with Wall Street analysts. Essentially the company plans to integrate McAfee's security technology into processors for embedded devices. There are also plans to provide cloud-based security services for mobile devices.
Renee James, an Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Software and Services group, went into greater detail, explaining that Intel wants to build security management capabilities directly into hardware. This would allow mobile and other devices to communicate in real time with cloud-based security services. "The services will provide up-to-date protection for the devices including detecting and blocking malware, authenticating users, and verifying IP addresses and Websites," James said.
