What is Intel's security strategy moving forward?
In the wake of the Meltdown and Spectre security flaws, Intel established the Intel Product Assurance and Security (IPAS) group to consolidate Intel's cross-company efforts to address issues like Meltdown and Spectre. IPAS will be led by human resources chief Leslie Culbertson. Partners want to keep tabs on this group's strategy around security, as well as updates on Intel's overall security efforts.
"Intel has their security guys on this issue … the fact that, in the past, they have invested in McAfee and other security companies over the years leads me to believe that they're in a good position now and moving forward," said MicroAge's Lamothe.
