Hardware-Enhanced Security Changes Business Security Paradigm
In a survey of enterprise users, 71 percent admitted to ignoring security policies meant to protect them, their devices, and corporate data.
This survey result matters for two reasons. First, because some of the most pressing security concerns business leaders like you face—from malware to data theft—pivot around user actions. But perhaps more importantly, the survey result shows one reason why enterprise information security can feel like an uphill struggle. Despite an ever increasing attack surface, security practices are still sometimes perceived as obstacles to be circumvented. In part, this perception is fed by the fact that for the past three decades, enterprise security practitioners have countered software-based security threats with software-based defenses.
Today, Intel and its partners are working to change the software-versus-software equation to tip the balance in your favor. The new equation enhances software-based protection through a three-pronged security vision anchored in the hardware:
1. Strengthen computing at its silicon roots without impeding the user experience through security features built into great platforms.
2. Deploy innovative software and services that take advantage of those hardware-embedded security features.
