Has your IT organization felt the need for accurate asset management, reduced downtime with fewer deskside visits, and improved malware prevention and response?
Want a solution for out-of-band manageability and security when the PC is in a low-power state or even powered off, the operating system is unresponsive, or software agents are disabled?
Active Platform Management Demystified describes the manageability and security features in PCs equipped with Intel(r) vPro Technology which includes Intel(r) Active Management Technology (Intel(r) AMT). It "goes into detail about how Intel AMT eases the burden of maintaining, managing and protecting PCs in both the Enterprise and Small Business environments" according to Christoph Graham, Hewlett-Packard Technical Strategist, and "will be very useful to anyone delivering Intel AMT solutions."
Intel Active Management Technology provides an access point for the latest management consoles from Microsoft, Altiris, Cisco, LANDesk, HP and others so IT practitioners can access PCs over a wired or corporate wireless network- or even outside the corporate firewall through a wired LAN connection. "This book keeps things clear and simple, even when discussing out-of-band operational details on IDE-Redirect and heuristic filters. The explanations illustrated using the Developer s Tool Kit are especially useful" says Javier Caceres of Aranda Software Corporation.
