Chip Shot: Intel Strengthens Security for the Internet of Things

At IoT Insights in San Francisco, Intel Security announced Enhanced Security for IoT Gateways in support of the Atlantic Ridge reference model introduced today. This pre-validated solution from McAfee, part of Intel Security, adds advanced security management for gateway devices. Intel also announced that it has taken a major step to enable secure interoperability between third-party IoT products by licensing its Enhanced Privacy Identity (EPID) technology. Previously available only on Intel processors, EPID enables Atlantic Ridge deployments to incorporate sophisticated anonymity technology and hardware-enforced integrity in a manner that is compatible with existing ISO and TCG standards. We believe we have the technology, expertise and reach to bring simple, secure access to consumers worldwide. Intel Security offers a full range of solutions from cloud and data enter to edge and even services creation allowing System Integrators (SI) to offer end-to-end security to their IoT installations.
