Intel Announces vPro Technology Suite
Intel's new vPro technology suite introduces a new set of tools to aid in the security and manageability of desktop PCs. Intel vPro technology uses a combination of processor, chipset, networking and software to provide its benefits.

Using the second generation of Intel Virtualization Techology (VT) which is integrated into the Core Solo/Duo processors and the second generation of Intel Active Managemenet Technology (AMT) which is integrated into the main chipset itself and in conjunction with software, vPro can offer a set of new management and security capabilities for Intel platforms.

Intel AMT can reduce support costs by helping to manage inventory, diagnosis and repair of PCs, even when the systems are "off" or have a crashed operating system or hard drive. AMT also offers the ability to isolate infected PCs before they cause an impact on the network and alert IT managers when threats are removed.

Intel VT offers a means of increasing security by providing the ability to virtualize a separate independent hardware-based environment within the PC so IT managers can create a dedicated, tamper-resistant service environment or partition which is invisible to and isolated from other environements within the PC, such as the PC users.

Symantec have announced their support for the vPro technologies by using the VT technology to create a tamper-resistant virtualised environment outside the main PC operating system to deliver stronger control and protection for managing security threats.

Other software vendors that intend to add application support and solutions that use the vPro technologies include; Adobe, Altiris, Avocent, Check Point, Cisco, Computer Associates, Hitachi JP1, HP OpenView, Kaspersky Lab, LANDesk, Lenovo, Lockdown Networks, Microsoft, Novell, Panorama SW, SAP, Skype, StarSoftComm, SyAM Software, Symantec and Zenith.

vPro technology will also be part of the Intel Stable Image Platform program which offers predicatable transitions in the Intel software stack and drivers by having drivers remain unchanged and stable for five quarters from the time of product launch. The Stable Image Platform program is in its fourth year.

The vPro technology will be available from the second half of 2006 and can be identified by the new logo of PCs.
