Intel Security Innovation Alliance Partner Ecosystem Delivers Integrated Security to Defend Against New, Sophisticated Cyberattacks

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, Nov. 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 that 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:

Through the Intel Security Innovation Alliance customers will now have the added capability of user 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 behaviors 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*.
