Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT)
This technology is embedded in Intel®-based platforms to enhance the ability of IT organizations to manage enterprise computing facilities. Intel AMT operates independently of the platform processor and operating system. Remote platform management applications can access Intel AMT securely, even when Intel AMT is turned off, as long as the platform is connected to power and to a network. Independent software vendors (ISVs) can build applications that take advantage of the features of Intel AMT using the application programming interface (API).
