Intel Emphasizes Security with New Platform
Intel is preparing to release a new version of its vPro platform Aug. 27, which will include an emphasis on security that the chip maker hopes will expand the reach of its desktop management technology.
The new version of vPro platform, which Intel had called “Weybridge,” will sport three different Core 2 Duo processors, along with the company’s Q35 Express chip set and its 82566DM gigabit network interface connector.
While the first version of vPro, which came to market in April 2006, focused mainly on technology that would make it easier for IT administrators to remotely manage desktops and have better control of a large fleet of corporate PCs, the 2007 update to the platform will add new security features as well as virtualization capabilities.
“We are trying to be a little more innovative and proactive by driving security capabilities right into the platform itself,” said Gregory Bryant, vice president for Intel’s Digital Platform Division.
