Intel Security Innovation Alliance Adds New Partners to Provide an Integrated, Connected Security Ecosystem to Defend Against New, Sophisticated Cyberattacks

Intel Security explains why traditional security fails for most organizations.

  • Most organizations deploy security products from multiple vendors that do not interact with each other.
  • In today’s fast evolving threat landscape, this not only increases operational costs, it may even increase risk.
  • Security challenges now require open, collaborative approaches to detect threats, reduce risk, and ensure compliance.

The following video presents Part 1 – Why Traditional Security Fails:
McAfee Advanced Threat Defense detects targeted attacks and connects with existing defenses, converting threat intelligence into immediate action and protection.”

The following video presents The Power of Integrated Security:
McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL) is an open platform for connecting security solutions for timely multi-vector threat detection and remediation. This demo illustrates the power of integrated security, demonstrating the power of information sharing in real-time between solutions from multiple vendors.

The Intel Security Innovation Alliance is a technology partnering program that:

  • Accelerates the development of interoperable security products.
  • Simplifies the integration of these products with complex customer environments.
  • Provides a truly integrated, connected security ecosystem to maximize the value of existing customer investments, improve efficiency, maximize protection, and reduce operational costs.

Intel Security recently announced continued growth and product integrations across its extensive partner ecosystem, the Intel Security Innovation Alliance.

  • Check Point, Huawei and other industry leading companies have joined the Intel Security Innovation Alliance to provide a truly integrated, connected security ecosystem that maximizes the investment customers are making in their cybersecurity infrastructure.

Together, Huawei and Intel Security will work to provide Indicators of Compromise (IOC) data alerts to McAfee DXL and McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE), providing dynamic behaviour analytics and intelligence sharing to customers.

NEWS RELEASE

Intel Security Innovation Alliance Partner Ecosystem Delivers Integrated Security to Defend Against New and Sophisticated Cyber Attacks

Check Point, Huawei and Others Join Alliance to Bring Greater Visibility Across Infrastructure, Improved Efficiency and Reduced Operational Costs to Customers

FOCUS 16, LAS VEGAS, — November 3, 2016—Today Intel Security announced continued growth and product integrations across its extensive partner ecosystem, the Intel Security Innovation Alliance. Check Point, Huawei and other industry leading companies have joined the Intel Security Innovation Alliance to provide a truly integrated, connected security ecosystem that maximizes the investment customers are making in their cybersecurity infrastructure.

One year ago, at its FOCUS 15 event, Intel Security unveiled a new strategy emphasizing an integrated, open security system powered by a connected architecture across Intel Security and third-party products alike. Since that time, the Intel Security Innovation Alliance has executed on that strategy, doubling the number of partner companies who have existing, or are developing technology integrations with, McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL).

McAfee DXL provides a standardized integration and communications fabric for products regardless of underlying proprietary architecture. This open security architecture enables customers to integrate their solutions and gain visibility across their IT environment, analyzing data more efficiently and yielding more available and actionable intelligence.

“In today’s quickly evolving threat landscape, security products that do not interact with each other not only increase operational cost, they increase risk,” said D.J. Long, head of the Intel Security Innovation Alliance. “By joining forces with industry leaders, the Intel Security Innovation Alliance is providing a truly integrated, unified security ecosystem, enabling rapid deployment, simplified management and maximized protection.”

Key new Intel Security Innovation Alliance highlights include:
Check Point—The integration between McAfee DXL, McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) and Check Point firewall products enables intelligence sharing and workflow optimization. Real-time communication between these products allows customers to scale and automate their security environment, thereby saving time and resources.

HP Enterprise Aruba—Intel Security products McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) now integrate with Intel Security Innovation Alliance partner HPE Aruba product ClearPass. This cross-vendor integration covers two dimensions in the latest advanced security protection paradigm: threat intelligence sharing, and automatic detection and remediation.

Huawei—Together, Huawei and Intel Security will work to provide Indicators of Compromise (IOC) data alerts to McAfee DXL and McAfee TIE, providing dynamic behaviour analytics and intelligence sharing to customers.

MobileIron—FOCUS 16 marks the one-year anniversary of the Intel Security and MobileIron partnership through the Intel Security Innovation Alliance. In the last year the companies have integrated solutions to solve three key issues facing the enterprise today: extending data protection to mobile devices, addressing mobile threat protection and unifying admin workflows and user experience between mobile and endpoint devices.

Through the Intel Security Innovation Alliance customers will now have the added capability of Behavior Analytics (UBA). Security professionals now can deploy a new wave of UBA products to accelerate attack detection and incident response and pinpoint anomalies in real time. UBA automates the detection of attacks and risk behaviours inside an organization and can dramatically reduce the time and skill needed to investigate and respond to security events. Through their integration with McAfee ESM Intel Security Innovation Alliance partners now providing UBA include CyberArk, Exabeam, Fortscale, Gurucul, Interset, Niara, and Securonix.
