Intel Purchase of McAfee Changes Role of Security In Business

Imperva : 23 August, 2010  (Technical Article)
Imperva comments on the acquisition of McAfee by Intel and focuses on the effects it will have on the merging of business management and IT security
Imperva's Director of Security Strategy, Rob Rachwald comments on Intel's purchase of McAfee:

"The acquisition means one thing: security can't be separated from the business. In the past, the objective of security was all about keeping the bad guys out while letting the good guys in. However, with the advent of insiders and as external hacking's focus shifted to data theft, the objective of security professionals changed dramatically. Data—and the transactions that moved data—meant security teams had to deploy security as a part of supply chains, online transactions and for online collaboration among customers, employees, partners and social networks.

Today, how security teams view and approach their roles has changed dramatically. For example, in the past a CIO's role was laptop distribution. Today, CIOs build supply chains. In the past, CISOs distributed anti-virus and set up firewalls. Today, they must know where data resides, where it moves and how to protect it which requires a serious, comprehensive data security practice. This means security teams need to become business process experts to keep the bad guys disarmed while keeping the good guys productive. With this is in mind, Intel's purchase makes a lot of sense."
