Vigilance is the biggest need for present day cybersecurity landscape especially where it comes to delivery of solutions that keeps customers data safe and shining. And in this respect, hardware is the basic foundation from where everything begins. Keeping the same in mind, Intel recently partnered with several firms that could help in creation of futuristic security-based workloads like blockchains or confidential computing. After a lot of research, diligence, and efforts it finally came up with Intel® Secure Device Onboard for IoT devices.
Recently, it took another step forward with two add-ons in same segment: Intel® Security Essentials and Intel® Threat Detection Technology. The first one is a framework that establishes benchmarks for built-in security features for all Intel processors while the later one is a set of silicon-level capabilities that aid in detection of new types of threats. The firm also introduced a stronger academic association with Purdue University that would help in development as well as availability of cybersecurity talent.
The Intel Threat Detection Technology is capable of leveraging silicon-level functionality and telemetry to help Intel’s industry partners improve detection off advanced exploits and cyber threats. The Security Essentials, on the other hand, would ensure a consistent pack of most critical root-of-trust hardware security abilities across the Intel® Core™ , Intel Atom® as well as Intel Xeon processors. These capabilities are actually platform integrity technologies for hardware protection, trusted execution enclaves, accelerated cryptography, and secure boot that can protect applications while they are being executed.
