Read MoreThe new DeepSAFE technology developed by McAfee and Intel will bring innovative advancements to virtual security by making an efficient combination between hardware and software resources that will work from an inferior level compared to the operating system to better detect and prevent potential breaches.
Because cybercriminals are inventing ways of taking over computing machines, the security solutions providers must also come up with new means of dealing with attacks.
The methods used by DeepSAFE will rely on technologies already available in hardware products, to help protection applications deal with infections from a "deeper" position.
“McAfee DeepSAFE uses hardware features already in the Intel processors to provide security beyond the OS. From this unique vantage point, DeepSAFE can apply new techniques to deliver a whole new generation of protection in real time to prevent malicious activity and not just detect infections,” revealed Todd Gebhart, co-president of McAfee.
