Intel® Core™2/Centrino® Processors with vPro™ Technology
The all new 2010 Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family can help businesses by delivering intelligent security; cost-saving remote manageability; and adaptable performance. Smart security with programmable filters can systematically guard against viruses and malicious attacks. Continuous, intelligent polling for the presence of software agents helps ensure full protection from malware and attacks. Advanced features help prevent tampering or disabling of security software. With built-in Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT), PCs can even disable themselves if they are lost or stolen. And, because data is protected rather than erased, reactivation can be easy when the PC is recovered. Intel AT must be enabled in order to enjoy the benefits of this advanced security technology.
The all new 2010 Intel Core vPro processor family makes it easier to manage systems from a central location. KVM Remote Control (keyboard video mouse) and other built-in capabilities let you remotely configure, diagnose, isolate, and repair an infected P--even if the OS is unresponsive. You can also quickly upgrade to Windows* 7 remotely and overnight – saving on average about 40 minutes per upgrade per machine. This helps minimize disruptions to your users and makes it easier to retain access to your legacy applications. In order to enjoy the benefits of these intelligent remote manageability capabilities, Intel® vPro™ technology must be activated (see page 25 of this White Paper).
Laptops powered by a new Intel Core vPro processor include Intel® Centrino® wireless technology (either WiFi or WiFi with optional WiMAX), and are more energy efficient. These laptop and desktop PCs also include Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology), which can automatically adapt to each user’s unique needs so users can move faster when multitasking and get more accomplished in less time.
