Industry Voice: PC protection that starts at the hardware level

PCs are your company's lifeblood—the linchpin for keeping things running. But, with cybersecurity threats rampant, PCs can also be a big security problem. How big? Stolen credentials or phishing attacks are behind 61 percent of data breaches,1 and, often, an unprotected PC is the entry point. A successful attack can spread through your organization like wildfire, wreaking havoc in terms of downtime and lost productivity. The Intel vPro® platform's hardware-enhanced protection is the solution.

Increase protection right out of the box

Security decisions start at the PC. That's why the Intel vPro platform is architected with innovative, hardware-based security that minimizes threats from the start. In fact, 75 percent of IT managers surveyed reported that Intel vPro platform-based devices are more secure,2 providing protection against attacks from below the OS, minimising malicious code-injection risks, enabling your OS to enforce security policies, and making remote management and remediation easy so your users can get back to work fast.

Proven, proactive security

Want to turn your PCs into strategic assets against security threats? The Intel vPro platform does just that, working with existing security applications, and adding additional, powerful protections that proactively secure your company's PCs at the hardware level. The result: reduced downtime and increased productivity.
