New Intel vPro Technology Enhances Security, Adds Automatic Tune-Ups and Thinks for Itself

Third Generation Enables Virtualized PC Models, Services for Small Businesses

Intel introduces the third generation of Intel vPro Technology with a host of new features, some that enable PCs to "think and act for themselves," and all can now operate outside the corporate firewall. New features include: Fast Call for Help, Remote Schedule Maintenance, Remote Alert, Access Monitor and Microsoft NAP authentication. Also, the 2008 vPro opens the door to new virtualized PC models and services aimed at small businesses.

This latest edition of vPro continues Intel's trend of unique innovation to solve IT’s biggest challenges. In 2008, it furthers that trend with new features that automate repair and maintenance functions to free IT professionals' time and reduce the time it takes to get endusers up and running, reducing costs along the way.

IT professionals and small businesses alike run on PCs. Keeping them operating with less downtime for both endusers and IT, and at less cost is an industrywide goal. Latest edition of vPro gains ground in all of these areas.

LOL great how long before it tells me IT has a headache.. Thinking will lead to moody pc's ....Imagine being in the middle of a gaming session hit the keyboard a little too hard and the pc turn off the game... Nobody needs that and the worst of it would be the company's calling it a feature ;(
