Better security and improved performance
May 16,2012: Intel Corporation today announced the availability of its 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor-based platforms for business and intelligent system.
The Intel Core vPro processor-based platforms address the realities of today’s business climate, where data integrity and organizational efficiency create a competitive advantage. New capabilities embed security at every layer, including the silicon, without compromising performance. Software innovation allows IT managers to set up and configure systems within minutes to quickly implement compelling solutions. Additionally, the enhanced graphics and secure manageability help accelerate the transition and growth in intelligent systems for the retail, industrial, and healthcare industries.
On the occasion,Rick Echevarria, vice president, Intel Architecture Group and general manager, Business Client Platform Division said, “With the 3rd generation Intel Core vPro processor platform, Intel is leading the way into a new era, delivering the comprehensive and manageable computing solutions to business that enable them to deal with security threats, while providing the flexibility and form factors users demand.”
To defend against identity theft, Intel introduced Intel® Identity Protection Technology with public key infrastructure into Intel Core vPro processors. The technology provides a new second layer of authentication embedded into the PC that allows websites and business networks to validate that a legitimate user is logging in from a trusted PC by using a private key stored in a PC’s firmware.
The 3rd generation Intel Core vPro processors put greater performance in the hands of more information workers, giving them the ability to access and glean insights from all the information accumulating in their data banks, right on their PC.
The Intel Core vPro Processor family includes Intel® Active Management Technology to remotely manage computing issues. Businesses in a range of industries can use Intel AMT to achieve power savings, remote management and inventory control. For example, retailers with point-of-sale machines, digital signs or other intelligent devices can remotely diagnose and quickly fix problems over their network so customer transactions are not interrupted and sales are not lost.
Businesses can take advantage of the latest Intel Core vPro processor platform through a multitude of devices including Ultrabook™ devices, laptops, desktops, workstations and all-in-one PCs
