McAfee Becomes Independent Entity Following Split from Intel
As we have seen with other separations, such as with Symantec and Veritas, Intel has now separated McAfee into its own entity. They have retained a 49% stake with the rest of the investment settled by asset management group TPG after Intel’s initial acquisition in 2011.
The new structure will appoint TPG’s Bryan Taylor as the chairman of McAfee’s board, whilst Christopher Young, Intel’s Senior VP and GM of security, will take the role of CEO.
At the launch, Young stated:
“Cybersecurity is the greatest challenge of the connected age; weighing heavily on the minds of parents, executives and world leaders alike. As a standalone company with a clear purpose, McAfee gains the agility to unite people, technology and organisations against our common adversaries and ensure our technology-driven future is safe.”
