Intel vPro Enterprise for Chrome

With the vPro Enterprise for Chrome platform the company is looking to target the huge Chromebook market where users want tools to manage large fleets of devices. Currently only six CPUs support the new platform.

The upgraded vPro platform brings hardware-based protection for virtualized workloads.

With the upgraded vPro platform the company has added a new “anomalous behavior detection” feature, which can spot unexpected workloads and work with antivirus software to prevent them from running. With this, the company claims it will become much harder for ransomware attackers to attack and will reduce the attack surface below the operating system.

Other new features include the out-of-band management over Wi-Fi, keyboard-video-mouse remote control of devices, life cycle management features for device sanitization and recovery on select OEM PCs, and more.

All of the new vPro features are available with the 12th-Gen Intel Core CPUs.
