0 0 761

During RSA Conference 2021, Intel received the InfoSec Award for Next Gen in Vulnerability Management from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) at the 9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards. The judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of the company submitted materials on the website of each submission including but not limited to data sheets, white papers, product literature and other market variables.

We design our products with security in mind. Developing the strongest products demands that security is more than a one-time event. It must also be resilient to the changing threat landscape.

The Intel Product Security & Incident Response Team (PSIRT) helped define and role model industry best practices to support and govern product engineering in the identification, management and disclosure of security vulnerabilities that may affect supported products.

Now in its 13th year, Intel’s PSIRT is the central point for managing Intel’s response to product security vulnerabilities, including:

  • Setting policy, process, and tooling to ensure consistent handling, disposition and disclosure of product security vulnerabilities

  • Advising business units and engineering groups on product security vulnerability handling

  • Maintaining relationships with partner, customer and government agency PSIRTs and vulnerability handling organizations.

  • Both creating and actively participating in industry groups and standards, guiding creation of best practices and standards.

“Intel embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

In 2020, 92% of vulnerabilities were the result of our continued investments across internal research and Intel’s bug bounty program. Our efforts allow our customers to rely on our capability to discover and coordinate issues through a timely public disclosure.
