Written by Rachel King, Contributor

McAfee has announced a new partnership with its parent company, Intel, on an initiative intended to better protect the world's energy utility ecosystem from increased cyberattacks.

Under the partnership, announced on Monday, the two companies will develop a set of multiple products that will comprise a multi-layered security platform.

Besides promoting more awareness about cybersecurity and increasing attacks, objectives for this platform include improving and speeding up response times to attacks, decreasing the chances of a malicious attack in the first place, increasing uptime, and offering more options for remote device management.
