The Intel acquisition of popular anti-virus software, MacAfee comes as a big surprise to the IT industry. Intel is synonymous with processor technologies as well as being a hardware vendor. McAfee has always been a big player in the anti-virus game for enterprise and home use.
This is particularly interesting because of the disjoint industries represented by both parties. Is this a sign of more industry consolidation, such as with Dell and EMC? Or, is this possibly a new joint effort between hardware and software based companies? Time will tell, and I’m sure we’re to see more acquisitions like this in the coming years.
