Security Software

Evolving for Today’s Security First Mindset

by Imad Sousou, Corporate Vice President and General Manager


As the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, Intel remains focused on ways we can help protect our developers and customers at the heart of our Security First pledge. Over this past year, teams across the company have continued to improve security throughout our portfolio of hardware and software, automated our patch distribution models, and taken our industry collaboration to new levels. The formation of the Intel Product Assurance and Security (IPAS) team has helped coordinate all of these efforts.

We recognize however that Intel cannot do this alone. We see the value in collaboration that is driven by the structure of the industry and interdependency between layers in the stack. We have built an approach that takes a step beyond traditional multiparty collaboration to engage the ecosystem that features unprecedented levels of coordination. The goal is to create an environment where we’re all continuously learning. This helps us to drive the meaningful change that customers and end users are counting on.

This mindset has improved how Intel develops the hardware and software we deliver and how we contribute as a member of the broader community. But, please don’t just take my word for it. I encourage you to watch the video here and hear more about what Intel leaders across the company have to say about the progress and opportunities we see in 2019 and beyond.
