CORE ECS among the first to offer new 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors for no-compromise business computing

Atlanta, GA (June 4, 2012) CORE Education and Consulting Solutions, Inc., today announced that it is working with Intel to help business customers stay ahead of ever-growing security threats with a new generation of processors featuring an array of embedded security capabilities. CORE ECS will be among the first IT solution providers to offer the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family, built for smart security without compromising intelligent performance.

This new generation of Intel Core vPro processors designed for business and education will enable CORE ECS to help clients safeguard sensitive data, protect and secure lost or stolen devices, and manage their IT assets cost-effectively. Educators can take advantage of the latest Intel Core vPro processors through a multitude of devices including DELL laptops, desktops, workstations and all-in-one PCs.

“CORE ECS is committed to providing schools and districts with the most innovative, reliable and secure computing solutions available,” said Paul Sprayberry, President of CORE ECS Sales and Marketing. “We are pleased to offer classroom, storage and networking solutions powered by the Core vPro processor because teachers and students will ultimately benefit from this higher level of security and computing efficiency.”

The 3rd generation Intel Core vPro processor family helps CORE ECS’s customers stay ahead of today’s advanced security challenges – from rootkit attacks to international security breaches – while evolving to offer new delivery models such as cloud computing and desktop virtualization. Intel vPro technology offers those customers a comprehensive solution that addresses four pillars of security:

  • Threat management technologies such as Intel® OS Guard prevent viruses, malware and other invading agents from digging in below the operating system level. Other embedded security technologies to manage threats include Intel® Trusted Execution Technology for verifying a known safe environment for launching virtual machines, and Intel® Virtualization Technology for enhancing and securing tasks in virtualized environments.
  • Identity and access protects one-time password (OTP) tokens and public key infrastructure (PKI) certificates, helping ensure that only authorized users can access authentication credentials, so that an invading agent cannot get in and grant itself higher, more sensitive authorizations. Intel vPro technology safeguards this pillar of security with Intel® Identity Protection Technology.
  • Data protection is achieved with ubiquitous encryption that does not compromise performance, thanks to Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard – New Instruction (Intel® AES-NI) and Intel® Secure Key. To protect data on desktop and mobile PCs, as well as the devices themselves, Intel® Anti-Theft Technology can remotely immobilize a lost or stolen PC even if the unit is powered down or the hard drive removed. If and when the PC is recovered, it can easily be restored to full function.
  • Monitoring, remediation and reporting using Intel® Active Management Technology provides IT managers with secure, remote access to clients for fast troubleshooting and repair, automatically isolating infected PCs from the network. Using hardware-based KVM Remote Control, IT personnel can assume control of the keyboard, video and mouse for a “user’s eye” view of a device even when it is powered down or nonfunctioning.
