IT Best Practices: Intel IT is improving Intel’s security posture with data intelligence–deploying a new Cyber Intelligence Platform (CIP) based on leading-edge technologies, including Splunk Enterprise and Apache Kafka. The new platform ingests data from hundreds of sources and security tools, providing context-rich visibility and a common language and work surface around the data. It significantly improves productivity, efciency, and e?ectiveness across the entire Information Security (InfoSec) organization. Access to real-time data, streams processing, machine-learning tools, consistent data models, and orchestration and automation capabilities decrease the time it takes to detect and respond to increasingly sophisticated threats and ultimately leads to faster insights for prevention.

The Intel IT team deployed this big data solution in just five weeks and immediately started realizing business value. The CIP infrastructure is based on Intel Xeon Platinum processors, Intel 3D NAND Solid State Drives, and Intel Optane SSDs, providing the compute power Intel’s security experts need to gain faster and more intelligent insights while reducing time to pivot between security tools.

Some of the key benefits of the new CIP include:
* Easy implementation and fast ramp of human talent
* A common work surface across all of InfoSec
* Data taxonomy, common language, and search on the fly
* InfoSec org is DevOps ready
* Schema-on-demand with automated data normalization
* Complete threat categorization and kill chain visibility
* Simple integration of curated third-party security tools
* Connection to open source machine-learning libraries

As Intel’s chief information security officer, Brent Conran, says, ”Intel Information Security is much more agile than we’ve ever been in the past. But we need to continue to hone our skills. With artificial intelligence and machine learning there is more data, which means more risk. But it also means more rewards…not just cost avoidance…we are saving real green dollars.”

Built with a combination of Intel® architecture, Splunk, and Kafka, the CIP enables Intel to respond to threats faster, provides insights into faster prevention, and helps reduce risk.
