Intel Security


A new approach to software-defined security

Open Security Controller enables software-defined security by providing an abstraction layer between the security infrastructure and virtualization management of software-defined infrastructure (SDI) in the data center.

It is designed to broker between orchestrators, software-defined networking (SDN) controllers, security solutions, and management applications for dynamic and automated security provisioning, policy management, protection, and remediation. Open Security Controller adapts to virtual workload requirements, bringing together the performance and agility of SDI with the awareness and intelligence of the Security Connected framework from McAfee.
