Remote Manageability: Transactional Devices
Enhance the retail experience and improve device manageability
When retail devices like kiosks, point-of-sale, and ATM devices come with Intel® Core™ vPro™ technology,1 they can do more than ring up transactions. They enable richer customer experiences and remote management features2 that reduce the total cost of POS ownership and improve the serviceability of today’s sophisticated systems.
Intel processors with hardware-assisted remote support enable advanced POS transactional systems, with next-generation features that help:
- Reduce the total cost of ownership: IT can quickly deploy security patches across PCs, remotely unlock encrypted drives, and manage data security settings
- Improve security: Retail IT departments can accelerate data encryption/decryption using Intel AES New Instructions3 and reduce unwanted access to sensitive data on missing laptops using Intel® Anti-Theft Technology4
- Shrink the cost of complexity: By standardizing on Intel vPro technology, IT can eliminate complex and costly multi-vendor legacy solutions
1. Intel® vPro™ technology is sophisticated and requires setup and activation. Availability of features and results will depend upon the setup and configuration of your hardware, software, and IT environments. To learn more visit: www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/vpro/vpro-technology-general.html.
2. Requires activation and a system with a corporate network connection, an Intel® AMT-enabled chipset, network hardware, and software. For notebooks, Intel AMT may be unavailable or limited over a host OS-based VPN, when connecting wirelessly, on battery power, sleeping, hibernating, or powered off. Results dependent upon hardware, setup, and configuration. For more information, visit www.intel.com/technology/vpro/index.htm.
3. Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) requires a computer system with an Intel® AES-NI enabled processor, as well as non-Intel software to execute the instructions in the correct sequence. For availability, consult your reseller or system manufacturer. For more information, see software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-advanced-encryption-standard-instructions-aes-ni/.
4. Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT). No system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Requires an enabled chipset, BIOS, firmware and software and a subscription with a capable Service Provider. Consult your system manufacturer and Service Provider for availability and functionality. Intel assumes no liability for lost or stolen data and/or systems or any other damages resulting thereof.
