An Increasingly Diverse Range of Device Locations Have Increased Demand for Cloud-based Manageability and Security Capabilities
In 2020, remote work capabilities made business continuity possible for many organizations. Is your organization proactively managing its remote devices—or simply reacting to issues as they occur? This ebook from Intel examines how modern endpoint management from the Intel vPro® platform lets IT manage devices everywhere, both in-band and out-of-band, from the cloud.
Organizations no longer need someone on-site to manually turn on a device. With power-on capabilities, IT can install software quickly and then put the system back to sleep or power it off, reducing or eliminating employee downtime.
With Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) and Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel EMA), IT can see exactly what’s happening on a device when unpredictable problems arise. A key part of this capability is the powerful hardware-level remote control feature on Intel AMT.
Remote reboot lets IT administrators restart a machine with a non-working OS, much like hard-resetting via the device power button.
The Intel® Remote Secure Erase (Intel RSE) option, supported only by Intel® solid state drives (SSDs), offers a convenient solution to remotely wiping data from the drive and is available through Intel AMT.1
The Intel vPro platform could deliver a payback in 9 months, as estimated using a composite organization of 100,000 PCs, modeled by Forrester Consulting in a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study.
Intel EMA can be deployed to the public cloud by using the Intel EMA deployment guides listed on page 13 of this ebook.
