I have a retail upgrade of Photoshop CS5. I am iinstalling it now. It gives me three choices. Install:
 1.CS5
 2; CS5 64 BIT OR
 3 BOTH.  
I have a new workstation. It is 64 bit, 12 gig ram 5tb storage. Why would I need the 32 bit version? The only item it seems to add is "Adobe Fonts Recommended". Whatever that amounts to. Please give me some advice.

You should take a look to the read me you get with the installation. Sometimes it has some "known issues" regarding each version. Sometimes 64 bit are a little buggy and 32 not, so you might want to be sure what you need will be bug-free.

i think you should install both.
each of them has their unique advantages and disadvantages.

on the worst case scenario, if the x64 version fails, you can immediately continue working with the x86 version.

It's really a case of preference... what's more important to you? Software compatibility or system security?

Not all software is available in a 64bit version. Although more and more is showing up from the big name developers.

If you want the best environment for security go 64bit... otherwise go 32bit

Best case scenario would be to go with both in the event that one fails, you can switch to the other while you troubleshoot the failure.

As I said... Its all a case of preference.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.
