Intel® vPro™ technology


Managing and protecting desktops and laptops and securing data are among the great challenges for modern businesses. The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family with the hardware-based security and manageability of Intel® vPro™ technology simplifies and accelerates these critical Infrastructure Technology (IT) functions.

IT can now take advantage of enhanced features to manage notebooks over a wired or corporate wireless network- or even outside the corporate firewall through a wired LAN connection.

Smart security and manageability on every chip

Embedded in hardware, Intel® vPro™ technology capabilities are accessed and administered separate from the hard drive, OS, and software applications – in a pre-boot environment. This makes management less susceptible to issues affecting these areas and allows remote access to the PC regardless of the system's power state or OS condition.

Key encryption components are kept in protected FLASH memory, separate from the data they protect, making it easier to secure and harder to penetrate and access sensitive information.

Protecting virtual environments against rootkit and other attacks, Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) offers extra protection on PCs with Intel® vPro™ technology IT and built in Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT).

Including an industry-standard TPM 1.2 which can be used by third-party software to store keys and other protected data, Intel TXT enables the PC to boot software into a truest state and also helps protect the integrity of the virtual machine.
