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.
