Intel introduced two new technologies today, namely – Threat Detection Technology (TDT) and Intel Security Essentials. It has as well announced a ‘strengthened academic partnership’ with Purdue University.
Intel Threat Detection Technology, a set of silicon-level capabilities aims at detecting new threat types in the ecosystem. Two TDT capabilities are being introduced today that include implementation plans by Microsoft and Cisco.
The first capability is named Accelerated Memory Scanning that provides more scanning in less power consumption. As per early benchmarking of Intel’s systems, CPU utilization dropped from 20% to 2% in scanning. Microsoft’s Windows Defender ATP’s antivirus capability will be integrated with Accelerated Memory Scanning.
Intel Advanced Platform Telemetry is the second TDT capability brought by the company. It is a combination of machine learning algorithms and platform telemetry and has three purposes. It improves detection of advanced threats, reduces false positives, and minimizes performance impact. Cisco Tetration platform will be the first to have a hand in this integration.
Now for Intel Security Essentials that eyes to provide a consistent ‘critical root-of-trust’ hardware security capabilities across the processors of the tech brand. This will accelerate trusted computing, will improve the security posture of computing, lowering expense in security solutions, and minimizing performance impact. On the whole, it is a set of platform integrity technologies, directly integrated to Intel silicon, finding its purpose to protect cyber assets at runtime.
Last but not least, Intel’s commitment to being ‘an active partner in the security ecosystem’ via strengthening academic partnership with Purdue University. Developed with Intel, the university has launched Design for Security Badge Program today for students and professionals. The aim is to reduce talent gaps in the concerned industry.
Intel invites at its booth #3435 in North Hall of Moscone Center for the RSA 2028 conference, where several other partners will have announcements to make. Follow us to get updates on further technology innovations around the world.
