Brocade will integrate Intel Security products and solutions into its own solutions, after joining the Intel Security Innovation Alliance.
Brocade says the integrations will enable enterprises to deploy more secure New IP networking solutions, leveraging Intel’s security technologies and designed to alleviate threats faced by enterprises.
Brocade's SDN Controller, Network Advisor and analytics and security applications will all gain additional layers of security as they are integrated with Intel Security’s Data Exchange Layer, Enterprise Security Manager and ePolicy Orchestrator.
Gary Denman, Brocade Australia and New Zealand senior director, says the need for better and more pervasive security is one of the biggest drivers behind customers upgrading their networks to New IP architectures.
“By joining forces with the Intel Security Innovation Alliance program, Brocade intends to offer an enhanced and fully integrated security layer to Brocade data centre solutions,” Denman says.
He says the collaboration addresses an industry need for more secure, agile and scalable networks.
DJ Long, head of Security Innovation Alliance at Intel Security, says the alliance program aims to accelerate the development of interoperable security products and simplify the integration of those products with complex customer environments.
“The Intel Security Innovation Alliance will aim to enable Brocade and Intel Security customers with advanced levels of network security,” Long says.
