McAfee, which was recently acquired by Intel, discussed a security strategy recently that will attempt to take information gathered from its products to improve overall device security. The idea is to provide a well-rounded approach to security and stop the rapid breakout of threats across a company's network.
The CIO Insight
Trying to stay ahead of malicious hackers is among the most arduous tasks CIOs face. And unfortunately, there seems to be no end in sight. Whether or not McAfee's idea will work remains to be seen. But it's at least nice to see a company of that magnitude starting to think outside the box. After all, in today's security landscape, the more companies that do that, the greater the chances that you'll keep your sensitive data safe.
