Intel Security has recently added 24 partners to its Intel Security Innovation Alliance. The company say it’s a move aimed to extend its extensive partner ecosystem and broaden its portfolio of tightly integrated solutions.

The Intel Security Innovation Alliance is a technology partnering program that:

  • Accelerates the development of inter operable security products.
