Intel® Threat Detection Technology

Intel® Threat Detection Technology (Intel® TDT) provides cyberattack monitoring and increased security performance at the hardware level. Endpoint security solutions can leverage Intel® TDT to help discover advanced attacks that evade most other detection methods.

Combat Cryptojacking and Ransomware. Increase Performance.

The Intel® TDT AI software can profile malware as it attempts to execute on the CPU microarchitecture. This high-fidelity hardware alert is relayed to security software for fast remediation on the PC and for proactive protections across the fleet. The solution offloads compute-intensive security workloads such as accelerated memory scanning and AI from the CPU to the Intel integrated GPU for an improved user experience.

Threat Detection Use Case: Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint delivers industry leading endpoint detection and response to protect against attacks including ransomware. The upcoming integration of Intel TDT and Microsoft Defender for Endpoint adds another layer of protection by adding security signals sourced directly from the hardware.

Protect Applications with Anomalous Behavior Detection

Intel TDT Anomalous Behavior Detection (ABD) monitors applications for early indicators of compromise. ABD leverages CPU execution control-flow tracking to build dynamic AI models of "good" application behavior.

Enable Security Software for CPU Threat Detection

With Intel TDT, security vendors can augment and enhance the behavioral detectors in their own security solutions with hardware-based sensors that profile malware as it executes on the CPU.

Intel TDT leverages the Intel integrated GPU for security agent offload from the CPU. Offloaded processes may include AI, accelerated memory scanning, or any performance-intensive security workload.
