Business Benefits of the Intel vPro® Platform

  • Assurance of the highest performing Intel® Core™ i5 and Intel® Core™ i7 vPro® processors to support employee productivity
  • Built-in security features for protection below the operating system
  • Remote manageability of devices that are out of band, on-premise or off-premise
  • Validated platform integrating the latest PC technologies

Business-Class PC Performance

The Intel vPro® platform delivers business-class PC performance right out of the box to power workforce productivity, analyze data faster6 7 8 simplify connectivity, and extend battery life.6 9 IT and users reap the full benefits of the platform regardless of which form factor works best for them.

Fast Processing

A new PC with the latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processor10 has up to 65 percent better performance,6 8 11 up to 1.3x faster multitasking,6 8 12 and analyzes data up to 1.5x faster6 7 8 compared to a three-year-old PC.

Incredible Responsiveness

Users can experience up to 2x faster launch of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations while transferring large files with Intel® Optane™ memory H10 with solid state storage.6 13

Battery Life for a Full, Productive Workday

The Intel vPro® platform allows employees to leave the power cord behind with up to 11 hours of battery life.6 9

Hardware-Enhanced Security Features

IT security decisions start at the PC. The Intel vPro® platform is architected with enhanced hardware-based security features that help minimize the risks associated with security threats.

Part of the Intel vPro® platform, Intel® Hardware Shield provides enhanced protections against attacks below the OS and advanced threat detection capabilities for increased platform security. Intel® Hardware Shield helps reduce the attack surface to protect against damaging firmware-level attacks, while offloading routine security functions for lower user impact and continued productivity.

The cost savings related to more secure devices can be significant. In a study commissioned by Intel, Forrester Consulting found an annual reduction of 7,680 security support hours with Intel vPro® platform-based devices, resulting in USD 1.2 million in risk-adjusted savings over three years,5 as estimated using a composite organization.

Remote Modern Manageability

The Intel vPro® platform is a solid foundation for business-class, modern manageability for a wide range of devices in companies of all sizes. IT can remotely manage and repair PCs, kiosks, digital signage, and more, even when these devices are powered off or out of band. This transforms IT efficiency, helping reduce costs and minimize user distractions, support calls, and work interruptions.

As part of the Intel vPro® platform, Intel® Active Management Technology can help cut the costs of IT service calls.5 It includes remote management features to discover, monitor, repair, restore, and help protect networked PCs and other devices.

Intel® Active Management Technology using the Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel® EMA) tool enables management of devices both inside and outside the corporate firewall, even when out of band.

Boost Employee Efficiency

A Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Intel found 28,160 hours saved in improved employee efficiency with the Intel vPro® platform through better device security and management. This resulted in cost savings of USD 1.3 million over three years as estimated using a composite organization.5

Deploy Patches Remotely

Automatic remote patch deployment through Intel® Active Management Technology saved 832 hours, resulting in risk-adjusted cost savings of USD 81,000 over three years as estimated using a composite organization.5

PC Fleet Stability

The Intel vPro® platform gives IT and end users the stability and reliability of a true business-class device—in one integrated and validated solution—with the latest PC technologies. Intel works closely with our OEM partners to ensure PCs have met rigorous criteria and testing requirements for a comprehensive list of components, including processors, graphics, chipsets, and networking. This delivers outstanding quality, reliability, and compatibility that reduces the burden on IT.

The Intel® Stable IT Platform Program (Intel® SIPP), a part of the Intel vPro® platform, provides platform validation that aims for zero hardware changes throughout the buying cycle, for at least 15 months or until the next generational release. Fewer hardware changes mean fewer hassles, especially when it comes to PC image deployment.

With the confidence of a stable, validated platform, it’s easier to manage life-cycle complexities, reduce incidence count, and experience flexible transitions to new technologies.
