Lumension Comments On Game Changing Acquisition

Lumension Security : 03 March, 2011  (Technical Article)
On-device security improvements to become a race against time for security providers as Intel closes deal on acquisition of McAfee

Pat Clawson, CEO of endpoint security firm, Lumension comments on Intel's acquisition of McAfee.


“The closure of the Intel McAfee acquisition not only marks a significant milestone in Intel’s history with its largest cash purchase.  It is also a game changer for the security industry.  It will not only change the acquisition field, but will accelerate the race to improve security innovation on the device. 


“Traditionally, the likes of Microsoft, Oracle, IBM or EMC would have acquired a company like McAfee.  Now the floor is wide open.  We will most likely see moves by other chip manufacturers and hardware providers making a play for security companies this year.  And, with the M&A market starting to recover, 2011 should make for an interesting year in the security industry.


“As for security innovation on the device, it’s a given that we need to get better at protecting our smart phones, televisions, medical technology and cash machines.  With current security models proving ineffective, new levels of intelligence and a change in mindset are needed to protect today’s devices. What we do know is that we need to move from a known bad model, to a known good model. This means only allowing trusted software to run on devices.”
