    I find this very interesting. Even with McAffe not having a great track record, if they could combine the Hardware resources with a solution, that will harden the system, it would be a step in the right direction... Although I am still going to be a fan of virtualization, keeping the infections from even making into the system altogether.

    At first when I seen this I thought why choose such a poor company such as McAfee... (no need to explain further right?) but then it dawned on me that after reading that Intel bought them that was the reason why! Wonder how cheap Intel got them for, because can assure you that this must of been the main motive. Good move for Intel, bailout for McAfee who will be under huge pressure to perform for the new owner. This is a good step in providing more security at a hardware level, but for how long we do not know surely! Some point this will either be flawed, or a way will be found out to bypass such a thing then the whole cycle starts again.

    In all things IT between the good and bad, it's a never ending perpetual cycle going back and forth.

    lets hope it's good and that it doesn't stop the user from using alternative AV/IS. McAffe would be the last company I would work with; due to the bad record thy have.

    Good move from McAfee and Intel. I do hope that they will do better in the future though since they haven't been doing great in the last years.

    That is a good thing that McAfee and Intel did. Plus that means more chance of infection.

    There's always something new being brought out as a threat countermeasure, but they'll always be beaten at there own game.

    Shame really.. :(

    On that partnership Mcafee would back track on their products.

    Well let's face it, Intel would of bought them for peanus keeping all cards close to their chest, as soon as they do a press release & sneak peak on what is about to come, the value of McAfee rises quite rapidly! Good move on Intel's part as said before by me and many, blessing for McAfee, now let's see how this one turns out, hurry up!!!! :p
