Intel Anchors Identity Protection in the Chipset
Can your organization afford a $5.4 million dollar mistake stemming from a stolen password?
According to a Ponemon Institute study, that was the average cost of a data breach for organizations in the United States in 2012. When the consequences of even a single breach are potentially severe, the pressure on you and your staff as IT security pros can be formidable. After all, the costs go far beyond identifying and remediating the threat if your company faces fines from failed regulatory audits or if your damaged brand leads to lost customers and revenue.
Security practitioners have fought hard against threats, but responding to each new incident can feel like an uphill struggle. The traditional approach addresses software-only attacks with software-only defenses, but this outdated response is less effective against advanced modern attacks that are more sophisticated, targeted, and adept at circumventing traditional defensive postures.
Intel and its ecosystem of partners are helping to shift the balance with a new approach to identity protection that embeds security in the platform hardware. Innovative software and services take advantage of built-in hardware features to make identities safer, management easier, and access faster. By deploying multi-factor authentication software and services that use embedded security features, such as Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT), you can better prevent and remediate security vulnerabilities.
