Re: Intel Smokescreen
Obviously you haven't done your research into the new strategy of Intel Security around the Threat Defense Life Cycle, moving products to the cloud, or understand that providing an integrated platform is the future of security.

Simply misrepresenting information to "troll" is poor journalism! Next time have some facts before posting an article.

Intel Smokescreen
Intel has a lot of people fooled because of their slick PR and paid-for analyst reports.  The reality is that much of their old security business has failed and they had sold or given that away (Firewalls, email, Mobile security). Intel failed at mobile security and two firewall company acquisitions.  Oddly, the email security business which is quite competitive and important they are giving away to Proofpoint, So at this point they are not a viable security partner except for Advanced threat control.  Not a bad place to be (ala FireEye), but hardly a player in the big picture. They are a point solution player now with the main focus of the security group to serve the chip business.

So, the remaining security solutions don't really fit the chip business model or wallstreet multiples.  My guess is that they spin off the Advanced threat business once they complete the integration of pieces and remain the chip manufacturer they are.  Semiconductor companies can't help but destroy any serious value add they own since the focus is on how many chips can we sell. Security was and will be a failed experiment for Intel.
