Intel has introduced its 13th Generation Core processor line, which the company claims is the first to build threat detection into hardware. In combination with endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms from Intel partners, the new vPro processors promise a 70% reduction in attack surface compared to four-year-old PCs. Windows 11 systems can also take advantage of vPro’s memory encryption to provide better virtualization-based security.
In tests conducted by SE Labs and commissioned by Intel, the vPro platform had 93% efficacy at detecting top ransomware attacks, a 24% improvement over software alone. Other tests conducted by IDC showed that vPro’s virtualization security could result in a 26% decline in “major” security breaches and 21% fewer impactful security events while improving security team efficiency by 17%.
