OVERVIEW
McAfee, the world’s largest dedicated security technology company, delivers proactive and proven solutions and services that help secure systems, networks, and mobile devices around the world. With over $600 million dollars of procurement per year, McAfee relies on its dynamic OEM appliance manufacturing partners to develop extremely reliable, high-performance new products quickly and efficiently. Most importantly, McAfee requires its suppliers to deliver the same high-quality engineering and support that its customers have come to expect.

In any product lifecycle, flexibility is the key ingredient to a successful deployment. During McAfee’s development of a new turnkey solution, Intel announced the introduction of new processors, which would become generally available at the same time as the planned debut of the McAfee appliances. Being able to take advantage of these new processors without delaying the introduction of the new appliances introduced a new challenge and McAfee needed a partner to step up to remove the potential obstacle.
McAfee is the world's largest dedicated security technology company, delivers proactive and proven solutions and services that help secure systems, networks, and mobile devices around the world.
AMAX took the initiative to leverage its strong relationship with Intel, obtaining the new processors before they were released to the market and early enough in the appliance design process to streamline McAfee's product and system testing. The new appliance also featured specific drivers to maximize availability, gold-level redundant power supplies, and remove system management capabilities to meet McAfee's exact requirements.

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
