Today more than half of the data breaches starts with the misuse or theft of user credentials.

Intel Core vPro (Skylake) To solve this problem, Intel is previewing a new security solution – Intel Authenticate – which allows companies to start their internal phase of testing and qualification. Intel Authenticate is a solution of multi-factor authentication, using optimized hardware, which strengthens the protection of identity in the PC, making it less vulnerable to attacks aimed at identity credentials and security.

IT departments can choose between multiple factors strengthened or authentication systems based on the policy of the company and are no longer forced to rely on the fact that employees have to remember complicated passwords. Intel Authenticate is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, 8 and 10 and is available as a preview for customers.
