Today’s computing landscape is far more complex that it was just a few short years ago. With diverse employee roles and responsibilities, a range of computing needs and consumer-like devices making their way into business computing environments, IT organizations are being challenged to rethink how they manage end-user computing. At the core of these trends is the need to develop a strategy centered on the end user—one designed to optimize the computing experience and keep the user productive on any device from any location while meeting the minimum requirements for responsiveness, security, and manageability.
Fortunately, innovation in business computing is moving at an equally rapid pace. IT now has a range of options from new business-class tablets for task-specific workers, to full-featured systems for mobile information workers and to space-saving all-in-one devices for office workers—all with Intel® technology inside.
The ultra secure, ultra sleek Ultrabook™, a new business-class device that is less than an inch thick, wakes up in a flash and runs for hours, perfect for your most seasoned travelers.
Innovative desktop systems are growing in popularity in large part due to their simplicity and clutter-free designs, ideal for office environments with limited space.
Innovative, Intel® processor-based tablets give you more options to better support your task-specific workers while lowering your total cost of deployment.
The Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor comes with embedded security that delivers unprecedented protection for your clients and business data.1 2 These distinctive built-in features are specially designed to address the key concerns of IT security management, from the threat of viruses and malware to secure access and data protection.
With the out-of-band remote management controls embedded in the Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor, technicians can efficiently support remote PCs that are beyond the reach of traditional software management capabilities. IT staff can easily troubleshoot, diagnose, and correct errors on remote PCs using hardware-based remote controls.
The Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family delivers responsive performance that will wake your clients in a flash and adapt to your users’ needs. It also provides seamless protection of important business data by encrypting data up to four times faster—without slowing performance.3 4 5

1. Intel® vPro™ Technology is sophisticated and requires setup and activation. Availability of features and results will depend upon the setup and configuration of your hardware, software and IT environment. To learn more visit: www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/vpro/vpro-technology-general.html.
2. No computer system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Built-in security features may require third party software, hardware, or services, and an Internet connection. Results may vary depending upon configuration. Consult your PC manufacturer for more details.
3. Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) requires a computer system with an Intel® AES-NI-enabled processor, as well as non-Intel software to execute the instructions in the correct sequence. Intel® AES-NI is available on select Intel® processors. For availability, consult your reseller or system manufacturer. For more information, see software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-advanced-encryption-standard-instructions-aes-ni.
4. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information go to http://www.intel.com/performance. Results have been measured by Intel based on software, benchmark or other data of third parties and are provided for informational purposes only. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party data referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the websites of the referenced third parties or other sources to confirm whether the referenced data is accurate and reflects performance of systems available for purchase.
