IT managers face a range of challenges from complex business processes to sophisticated security threats. To address these challenges, Intel Corp. has added a number of new functions and capabilities into its third-generation Core i-series "Ivy Bridge" processors with vPro technology designed specifically for business and intelligent systems.

The enhancements to the Intel Core vPro processor platform provide a more secure platform for business computing and drive the next wave of innovation in intelligent systems. New capabilities embed security at every layer, including the silicon, without compromising performance. Software innovation allows IT managers to set up and configure systems within minutes to quickly implement compelling solutions. Additionally, the enhanced graphics and secure manageability help accelerate the transition and growth in intelligent systems for the retail, industrial, and healthcare industries.

To defend against identity theft, Intel introduced Intel Identity Protection Technology with public key infrastructure (Intel IPT with PKI) into Intel Core vPro processors. The technology provides a new second layer of authentication embedded into the PC that allows websites and business networks to validate that a legitimate user is logging in from a trusted PC by using a private key stored in a PC's firmware. Intel has been working with solution providers and online Web properties such as Feitian, InfoServer, Symantec and Vasco to take advantage of Intel IPT technology to safeguard users' identity.

The latest version of the Intel Core vPro platform also features Intel OS Guard and Intel Secure Key. Intel Secure Key, with Intel AES new instructions, protects media, data and assets from loss, while Intel OS Guard detects and prevents malware. The new Intel Core vPro family of chips includes Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) to remotely manage computing issues.

Intel Core i-series "Ivy Bridge" chips with vPro technology are or will be available for desktops, laptops and ultrabooks.

May be more harmfull than beneficial. See: http://semiaccurate.com/2...-is-a-security-nightmare/

Simply copy-pasting press releases does not make good journalism, I'm afraid. This topic is worth a more thorough investigation, I think.
