The built-for-business the Intel 10th Generation vPro® platform delivers a unique combination of performance, hardware-enhanced security, manageability, and stability features to provide what IT needs and users want. Do more, save time, and lower costs.*
The Intel vPro platform offers a strong response to the threats posed by increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity hackers through a proactive, hardware-based defence. Attacks against organisations are rising sharply in both number and variety, with an increase in firmware exploits targeting the surface below the operating system.
Intel vPro technology helps enable a security strategy built on hardware. Cyber criminals often target devices on levels below the operating system, where they can do damage and cover their tracks beyond the visibility of anti-malware applications. The Intel vPro platform addresses these threats through a new security technology called Intel Hardware Shield, which extends security to the BIOS and firmware layer. This hardware-based technology helps reduce the risk that a bug or vulnerability in firmware (or device drivers) could be used to inject malicious code into the platform at runtime and hide that code from traditional antivirus solutions.
