Putting Security In The Driver's Seat

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in an open letter to Thursday that the Santa Clara, Calif.-based semiconductor vendor is continuing to work closely with technology partners to restore confidence in the security of its customers' data as quickly as possible.

"The degree of collaboration across the industry has been fantastic," Krzanich said. "I am very proud of how our industry has pulled together."

Intel has had a hectic January since news broke eight days ago that design flaws have left a gigantic portion of the world's computer processors vulnerable to two major exploits, which researchers named Spectre and Meltdown.

Researchers noted that the Meltdown flaw affects virtually every microprocessor made by Intel, whose chips used in more than 90 percent of the world's computer servers.

Here are five security-related promises Intel has made to its partners and customers this week.
