"A Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Intel found 28,160 hours saved in improved employee efficiency with the Intel vPro® platform through better device security and management. This resulted in cost savings of USD 1.3 million over three years as estimated using a composite organization."5
IT security decisions start at the PC. The Intel vPro® platform is architected with enhanced hardware-based security features that help minimize the risks associated with security threats.
Part of the Intel vPro® platform, Intel® Hardware Shield provides enhanced protections against attacks below the OS and advanced threat detection capabilities for increased platform security. Intel® Hardware Shield helps reduce the attack surface to protect against damaging firmware-level attacks, while offloading routine security functions for lower user impact and continued productivity.
The cost savings related to more secure devices can be significant. In a study commissioned by Intel, Forrester Consulting found an annual reduction of 7,680 security support hours with Intel vPro® platform-based devices, resulting in USD 1.2 million in risk-adjusted savings over three years,5 as estimated using a composite organization.
The Intel vPro® platform is a solid foundation for business-class, modern manageability for a wide range of devices in companies of all sizes. IT can remotely manage and repair PCs, kiosks, digital signage, and more, even when these devices are powered off or out of band. This transforms IT efficiency, helping reduce costs and minimize user distractions, support calls, and work interruptions.
As part of the Intel vPro® platform, Intel® Active Management Technology can help cut the costs of IT service calls.5 It includes remote management features to discover, monitor, repair, restore, and help protect networked PCs and other devices.
Intel® Active Management Technology using the Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel® EMA) tool enables management of devices both inside and outside the corporate firewall, even when out of band.
The Intel vPro® platform gives IT and end users the stability and reliability of a true business-class device—in one integrated and validated solution—with the latest PC technologies. Intel works closely with our OEM partners to ensure PCs have met rigorous criteria and testing requirements for a comprehensive list of components, including processors, graphics, chipsets, and networking. This delivers outstanding quality, reliability, and compatibility that reduces the burden on IT.
The Intel® Stable IT Platform Program (Intel® SIPP), a part of the Intel vPro® platform, provides platform validation that aims for zero hardware changes throughout the buying cycle, for at least 15 months or until the next generational release. Fewer hardware changes mean fewer hassles, especially when it comes to PC image deployment.
With the confidence of a stable, validated platform, it’s easier to manage life-cycle complexities, reduce incidence count, and experience flexible transitions to new technologies.

The Total Economic Impact™ of the Intel vPro® platform, a study commissioned by Intel and conducted by Forrester Consulting (December 2018). Savings that other organizations will receive will vary based on a variety of factors, including size and baseline level of security, manageability, and productivity before the business switched to the Intel vPro® platform. Consult other sources and use information specific to your organization to determine benefits for your organization. Read the full study at intel.com/vProPlatformTEI. Your costs and results may vary.
Performance results are based on testing as of March 21, 2019 and April 3, 2019 and may not reflect all publicly available security updates. See configuration disclosure for details. No product can be absolutely secure.
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.
