Intel said 6th Gen Intel Core vPro processor promises up to 2.5 times increase in the performance, 3 times increase in the battery life and a 30-times increase in graphics performance over a 5-year-old system.

Intel has focused on improving security aspects to enterprise CIOs when they select the next round of devices for their workforce.

6th Generation Intel Core vPro processors feature Intel Authenticate Solution, a hardware-enhanced multifactor authentication solution that strengthens identity protection.

The other innovative feature from Intel is Unite application, its conference room collaboration tool, by integrating Skype for Business. The US technology company claims that Unite application is designed to advance work place transformation assisting enterprise CIOs and CXOs.

“With incredible, new, eye-catching designs, added performance, and longer battery life, the 6th Gen Intel Core and Intel Core vPro processors are setting a new standard for business computing,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager for the Intel Business Client division.

Intel is previewing a new security innovation called Intel Authenticate for businesses to begin internally testing and qualifying. Intel Authenticate is a hardware-enhanced, multifactor authentication solution that strengthens identity protection on the PC, making it less vulnerable to identity and security credential attacks.

The company says there is no need to rely on complicated and traditional authentication tools if you are opting for devices that use Intel Core vPro processors.

Intel Authenticate verifies identities by using a combination of up to three hardened factors at the same time: “something you know,” such as a personal identification number; “something you have,” including a mobile phone; and “something you are,” like a fingerprint.

IT heads now can choose from multiple hardened factors of authentication that are based on company policies. Intel Authenticate is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, 8 and 10, and is available for customers to preview. Microsoft recently said it will stop supporting Windows 7 and 8.

Older laptops can cost businesses $4,203 per year, for every three PCs, in maintenance and lost productivity. New business PCs can help address this by delivering up to 2.5 times the performance and a 30-times increase in graphics performance over a 5-year-old device, providing users with much more productive and powerful business tools.

Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, Panasonic and Toshiba are releasing enterprise-ready devices featuring the new Intel processors.

For small businesses, Intel is offering Intel Small Business Advantage (Intel SBA). The Intel solution provides small business owners with a centralized way to connect and share information coupled with automatic security and maintenance updates.

Intel says Intel Core vPro processors is meant for enterprises which are looking for additional security, more productivity and less complexity in workplace.
