Next week at RSA, security thought-leaders from around the world will come together to talk about strategies for safeguarding identities and data in a complex world of increasing cyber threats.
We’ve seen the headlines on identity and data hacks; we know the costs are high both financially and to a company’s brand. It’s time for a different approach, one that helps enterprises increase their security posture from reactive to proactive protection.
The industry needs a new way to minimize cyber threats and together with Microsoft, we will change the security paradigm. We recently announced Project Evo, where Microsoft and Intel are working together to create new innovative PC experiences. As part of this partnership, we are working to fundamentally re-architect the security platform beyond just perimeter defense to holistically protect and proactively secure customers.
One Vision, One Roadmap, One Solution
The co-development strategy will integrate our Intel® Authenticate multifactor solution, which uniquely protects identities in hardware, with Windows Hello, Microsoft’s innovative biometric authentication that creates a natural log-on experience in seconds. The result will be one solution across hardware and software that increases identity protection and delivers a seamless log-on experience.
The combined benefits for enterprises include a user experience that is simple and password free while having the authentication factors, credentials, IT policies, and authentication decisions isolated in the hardware to protect sensitive user identities.
We expect to deliver an integrated solution to Windows-based devices by the end of 2017.
What Should Enterprises Do Today?
We recommend enterprises move to Windows 10 with our latest 7th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro™ platform today as they will be best positioned to capitalize on Windows Hello and Intel Authenticate and our future advancements.
Going to RSA?
If you’re at RSA, join us at the Marriott Marquis, SOMA room, level 2, on Feb 14 and 15 where our security experts will discuss our built-in hardened platform security strategy and solutions including Intel Authenticate and Intel Data Guard. We will also be presenting a session at RSA on Feb 16 at 8:00AM, Moscone North 132, entitled: Cybersecurity Challenges and Innovative Hardware Solutions from Intel.
