Take Control of Protecting Your Data

What Is Intel® SGX?

There is tremendous opportunity for application and solution developers to take charge of their data security using new hardware-based controls for cloud and enterprise environments. Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX)1 2 offers hardware-based memory encryption that isolates specific application code and data in memory. Intel® SGX allows user-level code to allocate private regions of memory, called enclaves, which are designed to be protected from processes running at higher privilege levels. Only Intel® SGX offers such a granular level of control and protection.

Enhance Your Code and Data Protection

Intel® SGX helps protect against many known and active threats. It adds another layer of defense by helping reduce the attack surface of the system.

Discover how the combination of Intel® SGX’s hardened security and verification capabilities, along with Intel’s ongoing collaboration with its broad security ecosystem help minimize the potential attack surface and reduce even theoretical risks.
