Computers with Intel vPro technology:

  • can be FULLY managed remotely

A managed computer device is accessible and configurable.  A computer with Intel vPro technology can be turned on and off remotely by an administrator.  It's boot messages can be redirected to a console for remote monitoring and configuration of the BIOS.  It can be forced to boot from an OS image on a remote computer.  This image can have diagnostic tools to test hard drives and memory.  Allowing IT to know if the PC needs a new OS image or if a hard drives is defective and will require replacing.

  • use less power

A key feature of Intel vPro technology is the ability to power the systems on and off remotely.  In a large corporate environment where hours are fixed, a global policy can be defined where all PC's are automatically powered off after a specific time.  They can also be powered back on in the morning just before the work day begins.

Other requirements of Intel vPro technology is the hardware that is included.  To qualify for the vPro brand a PC must meet certain minimum hardware specifications.  Most importantly they must have an Intel Core 2 processor.  Intel Core 2 processors consume as much as half the power of previous generations while delivering more performance saving power and reducing operating costs.

  • are more secure

Intel vPro technology computers have built in firewalls so ports can be blocked at the NIC level.  Rules can be defined that will close down ports if certain activities like repeated  port scans are detected.

Core 2 Duo processors, a key component of Intel vPro technology also include Intel Virtualization Technology, which along with hypervisor software allows risky applications like web browsers to be run in a virtual machine where they are segregated from other resources.
