Intel® Security Controller
A controller-based approach for enabling software-defined security for software-defined infrastructure
Intel® Security Controller enables software-defined security by providing an abstraction layer between the security infrastructure and virtualization management of software-defined infrastructure (SDI) in the data center.
It is designed to broker between orchestrators, software-defined networking (SDN) controllers, security solutions, and management applications for dynamic and automated security provisioning, policy management, protection, and remediation. Intel® Security Controller adapts to virtual workload requirements, bringing together the performance and agility of SDI with the awareness and intelligence of the Security Connected framework from McAfee.
Software-defined security for the data center
Uses a controller-based approach for security function virtualization.
Best-of-breed protection for virtualized infrastructure
Integrates advanced security from the Security Connected portfolio from McAfee.
Automated, dynamic, and agile security
Security provisioning and policies are synchronized automatically across the infrastructure.
Scalable, accessible, and extensible architecture
Scales across data centers and security solutions using web- or API-based controls.
Cost-effective, simplified management and deployment
After four easy steps, it runs transparently to reduce manual security provisioning tasks.
Supports duty separation and investment protection
Administrators use their existing virtualization and security management tools.
In its first release, Intel® Security Controller integrates McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform appliances within VMware NSX environments to provide next-generation IPS protection and compliance support for the data center.
A single controller communicates with multiple VMware NSX and vCenter deployments, and McAfee Network Security Manager appliances, to synchronize policy management and enforcement. It supports VMware micro-segmentation and a VMware ESX Agent version of the McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform sensor within its security function catalog so that it may be provisioned as a distributed security appliance.
Intel® Security Controller v1.0 is available to customers of the McAfee Virtual Network Security Platform.
