Intel Advances Security at the Silicon Level

Advancing Security at the Silicon Level | Intel Newsroom

In addressing the vulnerabilities reported by Google Project Zero earlier this year, Intel and the technology industry have faced a significant challenge. Thousands of people across the industry have worked tirelessly to make sure we delivered on our collective priority: protecting customers and their data. Intel announced today that it is addressing these challenges in a variety of ways, including:

  • IntelĀ® Threat Detection Technology: leverages silicon-level telemetry and functionality to help industry partners improve the detection of advanced cyber threats and exploits. Capabilities include:
    • Accelerated Memory Scanning: a silicon-level capability that will help industry partners improve the detection of advanced cyber threats and exploits, while enabling more scanning and reducing the impact on performance and power consumption on CPUs
    • Intel Advanced Platform Telemetry: combing platform telemetry, with machine learning algorithms, to improve the detection of advanced threats, while reducing false positives and minimizing performance impact
  • IntelĀ® Security Essentials: Ensures a consistent set of critical root-of-trust hardware security capabilities across Intel Core, Intel Xeon and Intel Atom processors and is designed to improve the security posture of computing, lower the cost of deploying security solutions and minimize the impact of security on performance
  • Microsoft integration of Accelerated Memory Scanning into Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with availability this month for 6th, 7th and 8th Generation Intel Core processors
  • Cisco integration of Intel Advanced Platform Telemetry into the Cisco Tetration solution for data center protection powered by Intel Xeon Scalable processors
  • Academic Partnership with Purdue University: With a well-documented shortage of cybersecurity talent, Intel partners with Purdue to help accelerate the development and availability of more cybersecurity talent
