Enhanced Security Server Delivering Platform Firmware Resilience

Making It Easier to Deliver Competitive and Secure1 Servers for Critical Infrastructure, Government, and Financial Institutions

As security threats continue to evolve and increase, security IT officers are driving for a holistic and expanded view to protect their critical infrastructure. This includes protecting the server all the way down to the firmware at the lowest layers of the platform, where threats are most difficult to detect. While technologies exist to protect the higher layers of the infrastructure stack, system IT users need assurance that the underlying platform launching these security technologies can be trusted.

As hackers seek new ways to infiltrate servers, the lower layers of the platform, where threats are most difficult to detect become a more common target. To address this, Intel has developed the Intel® Data Center Block with Firmware Resilience Server Block. Featuring Intel® Platform Firmware Resilience technology, this preconfigured, validated server system enables platform security starting in the factory through power-on, system boot, OS load, and beyond¹. With this offering, customers can protect firmware from being intercepted, detect firmware corruption, and automatically restore a system if malware is detected. The ability to correct firmware corruptions is a new and innovative capability, and an ideal solution for security-sensitive industries including government, financial institutions, and critical infrastructure.

Intel is simplifying adoption of this technology through fully-validated, configure-to-order systems featuring security-optimized Intel® Xeon® processor, Intel® Server Boards, Intel® Server Chassis, and multiple upgrade options to provide a solution that customers can deploy quickly and with confidence.
