New silicon-level Intel technology to prevent cyber attacks

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Global chip-maker on Tuesday launched silicon-level cyber detection to protect customers' data without compromising the performance and minimising the power consumption.

The company launched "Detection (TDT)", which is a set of silicon-level capabilities that will help the ecosystem detect new classes of threats, and "Intel Security Essentials", a framework that standardises built-in security features across Intel chips.

"We are also announcing a strengthened academic partnership with in the US to help accelerate the development and availability of cyber security talent," Rick Echevarria, Vice President, Software and Services Group General Manager, at Intel, said in a statement.

"Intel Detection Technology" leverages silicon-level telemetry and functionality to help organisations improve the detection of advanced cyber threats and exploits.

Intel also announced implementation plans by and

The first capability is "Accelerated Memory Scanning" that is handled by Intel's integrated graphics processor, enabling more scanning, while reducing the impact on performance and power consumption.

will integrate Accelerated Memory Scanning into Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection's (ATP) anti-virus capability this month.

The second is "Intel Advanced Platform Telemetry" that combines platform telemetry, with algorithms, to improve the detection of advanced threats.

"I am excited about the progress we are making, together with these key partners, to pioneer innovations across silicon and software to help protect customers from emerging threats," Echevarria added.
