Intel’s OnConnect Authentication Saves Intel Millions Through Secure Networking
Sanjay Rungta works with Intel’s Network Engineering Organization on keeping the Intel computing network safe and intrusion free. In addition to external threats from hackers, Rungta has done a lot to identify and combat internal threats. As increasing numbers of Intel employees work from home or WiFi hotspots, opportunities for exploiting certain network vulnerabilities increase. In this podcast interview, Rungta explains that It’s not that Wi-Fi holds greater risks or vulnerabilities, but that it’s experiencing such tremendous growth that it holds opportunities for all kinds of exploitation. He says that, with a network as large as Intel’s, efforts including remote employees’ access via VPN and implementing what he calls OnConnect Authentication have saved Intel millions of dollars. Rungta is an author of OnConnect Authentication.
