Check Point, Huawei join Intel Security Innovation Alliance partner ecosystem
Intel Security announces continued growth and product integrations across its extensive partner ecosystem
Intel Security has revealed that companies have joined its Intel Security Innovation Alliance to provide a connected security ecosystem that maximises the investment customers are making in their cybersecurity infrastructure.
The Intel Security Innovation Alliance has executed its 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 standardised 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, analysing data more efficiently and yielding more available and actionable intelligence.
D.J. Long, head of the Intel Security Innovation Alliance, said: "In today's quickly evolving threat landscape, security products that do not interact with each other not only increase operational cost, they increase risk. 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 maximised protection."
The Intel Security Innovation Alliance highlights include the integration between McAfee DXL, McAfee Threat Intelligence Exchange (TIE) and Check Point firewall products enables intelligence sharing and workflow optimisation.
Furthermore, 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. Plus, 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.
Through the Intel Security Innovation Alliance customers will now have the added capability of user behaviour 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 organisation and can dramatically reduce the time and skill needed to investigate and respond to security events.
