IT engineers from DuPont and Intel collaborated to explore the performance benefits of Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers with Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI). In a proof of concept and extensive laboratory testing, the engineers saw performance improvements of up to 300 percent in encryption and decryption.
The Intel Xeon processor E5 and E7 families, with the hardware acceleration of Intel AES-NI, can dramatically reduce the overhead associated with encryption and decryption while making encryption stronger. These solutions can help companies like DuPont protect their information while maximizing the return on their hardware investments.
