Start, run, and stay secure with technologies embedded in platform hardware.

Executive Summary
Can your company afford to pay $9.4 million to restore its reputation in the wake of a malware attack? In a recent study, the Ponemon Institute identified that figure as the average cost to restore a corporate brand following one of the most devastating types of malware attacks—the Advanced Persistent Threat (APT)—a sophisticated attack that targets high value assets and is difficult to detect. A single APT incident also incurs the costs of technical support, loss of user productivity, revenue loss, and business disruption. And it does not end there. Your organization might face fines associated with lack of legal compliance, expend funds on recovery efforts, and suffer incalculable losses from theft of intellectual property and user credentials.

As malware continues to proliferate at breakneck speed, businesses are challenged to defend themselves using software-only solutions. Yet software alone cannot effectively protect your enterprise from the more sophisticated attacks—particularly APTs. Intel is shifting the balance in your favor with its hardware-enhanced security technologies. Innovative software and services developed by Intel partners take advantage of those built-in hardware technologies to help keep your business safe.
