Today’s sophisticated cyber-criminals are finding new ways to plant their crimeware into business clients. Their stealthy viruses and codes are digging in out of sight and out of reach of virus detection and the operating system (OS). The result is the most insidious and sophisticated malware that security experts have seen to date – and IT management must protect against.
Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors address these new challenges with built-in security technologies1 that work below and beyond the OS – in the hardware and firmware. These new technologies from Intel enable greater threat management, better detect and thwart identity theft, provide deeper and safer encryption, protect against data and device theft, and, in the event of a breach, help reduce the cost of remediation.
Built-in security technologies in Intel Core vPro processors deliver and protect business clients where current technologies cannot reach. This paper surveys these embedded technologies from Intel and how they can help IT’s toughest security challenges.
1. No computer system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Built-in security features available on select Intel® Core™ processors and may require additional software, hardware, services and/or an Internet connection. Results may vary depending upon configuration. Consult your PC manufacturer for more details.
