Intel Vision for Cloud Security
One key element of the Intel vision for cloud security is to build in balanced controls instead of designing an environment based primarily on preventive controls. For example, the architecture is designed to dynamically adjust a user’s access privilege as the level of risk changes, taking into account factors such as location and type of device. This new approach is both proactive to minimize occurrences and reactive to minimize damage if a breach occurs.
Intel IT uses a hybrid approach that leads with a private cloud as the core strategy. In part based on security concerns, we selectively use a public cloud for nondifferentiated IT services such as staffing, benefits, expense, stock, and travel. We host the vast majority of our applications in our private cloud, such as enterprise, user profile management, productivity, and collaboration applications. We expect that more of our applications could burst to public clouds over time as security and vendor service level agreements (SLAs) improve and overall costs, including transition costs, become more favorable.
