No, it's pretty much what Intel's press release says it is: Intel wants to be (and feels that it needs to be) in the security business, period. The company thinks that they can do security better than a software vendor alone could, and they believe this because they know that security is about systems—not just hardware or software, but services, practices, policies, and user experiences and expectations..."

I know McAfee has some deals with the Universities and some Pre-Build computers. They say it's a long term deal, so I guess we shale see what Intel can do with McAfee. Honestly I think they could have bought another company if they didn't want to start from the ground up.

At almost 8 billion, I'm not sure it will pay off.
