Editorial Reviews

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.

This book is certainly not light reading. The book starts with high level overviews and history, both of vPro and out of band management. I describes the physical components of vPro and how they are integrated within the system, but also how they are separate from the OS for security and reliability. Then the book goes into each function of vPro, telling what the function does, how it's secured, and how to configure it for use. At the end of the book, it does include an appendix showing how to do a quick setup which is perfect if you want to test and demo the capailities of AMT (or have less than 50 PCs at one location).

I would hesitate to say this gives you a roadmap of how to deploy vPro in an enterprise, but it's a good resource for admins who need to understand what is required to set up the support systems. I wish I had this book two years ago when I was tasked with creating the whole plan and deployment for all our machines.

I highly recommend this book for managers and admins who want to learn what AMT can do and how it does it.

It may not be the greatest literature but it definitely does its job when it come to revealing the intricacies and practical use cases of the lityle known Intel subsystem (AMT). One more thing is that this book is simply rare when it comes to the subject - as if it was just for an elite.
