Intel Threat Detection Technology will also give customers greater options with which vendor to pick for endpoint detection and response (EDR), facilitating higher-efficacy detection of the newest threats.

Moreover, Intel vPro is the only business platform with all of this and built-in hardware security to identify ransomware and software supply chain attacks, making it the most comprehensive security product on the market.

The new platform is based on the 13th Gen Intel Core processors offering a hybrid architecture with new Performance-cores, more Efficient-cores on select offerings.

Intel’s built-in Thread Detector also classifies tasks more intelligently, and the manufacturer’s Dynamic Tuning Technology makes the vPro platform more energy efficient.

Intel notes the offering is combined with other solutions, such as the Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 4.

The Intel Evo platform, which boasts outstanding experiences, including intelligent collaboration, has also validated this offering.

Further, Intel vPro devices are designed especially for modern business computing.
