Intel Corp.'s Intel vPro technology promises to effect a shift in desktop PC security and manageability coupled with a significant energy-saving computing performance.

"Like Intel Centrino mobile technology and Intel Viiv technology, Intel vPro technology will bring together world-class innovations throughout the processor, chipsets, networking and software," said William Swope, Intel vice president and director of Digital Enterprise Brand Management.

At the heart of the first Intel vPro-based PCs will be an Intel Core microarchitecture dual-core processor. This 64bit microarchitecture significantly boosts performance and reduces power-consumption, improving responsiveness and productivity, the company release stated.

Intel vPro technology also includes the second-generation of Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) and Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT). Intel VT will be integrated into the dual-core processor, while the next-generation Intel AMT will be integrated into the new platform chipset.

Intel AMT helps manage inventory, and diagnose and repair PCs when systems are turned off or when operating systems or hard drives crash. The second generation of Intel AMT offers the ability to isolate infected PCs before they impact the network and alert IT when threats are removed.

Intel VT allows for separate independent hardware-based environments inside a single PC so that IT managers can create a dedicated, tamper-resistant service environment, or partition where particular tasks or activities can run independently invisible to and isolated from PC users.

During the Intel vPro technology announcement, Symantec Corp. disclosed its plan to work with Intel in building security solutions that create an isolated environment outside of the main PC operating system to manage security threats.

Support for Intel vPro technology will come from new applications and solutions from global software vendors, including 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.
