Intel Mulls Sale Of Security Unit

Intel is considering selling the cyber-security business formerly known as McAfee, which it purchased almost six years ago for US$7.7 billion.

The company has discussed the future of the business, now dubbed Intel Security, with bankers, including potentially selling the anti-virus software maker, the Financial Times reported.

Intel has been shifting its focus to higher-growth areas, such as chips for data centre machines and Internet-connected devices.
