McAfee Data Exchange Layer, a key technology powering the Intel Security platform, creates an underlying communication fabric connecting multivendor security products. The open, yet secure, framework empowers customer security tools to work more efficiently and effectively to simplify the threat defense lifecycle. More than 20 of the Intel Security Innovation Alliance partners have completed or are currently in the process of integrating their products into McAfee Data Exchange Layer. Integration with McAfee Data Exchange Layer provides an opportunity for customers and partners to build custom and unique designs and develop solutions.
Solutions integrated with the Intel Security Innovation Alliance are likely to analyse data more efficiently, yielding more available and actionable intelligence that an organisation needs to respond to threats. As a result, information security resources can focus more rapidly on high-priority issues and free capacity from reactive, tactical responses to a strategic, proactive approach.
“Together with our Security Innovation Alliance partners, Intel Security is defining a new era in cyber security, where components work together as a cohesive system and customers benefit from the intelligence that we can offer to automate workflows and protect a dynamic attack surface,” said Raj Samani, Chief Technology Officer, EMEA at Intel Security. “Intel Security’s open platform is an essential tool customers can use to help solve their security challenges, while also creating more opportunities for reseller partners.”
