Safe Frontier today announced details of its Active Management Cloud (AMC) – industry first, infrastructure as a service for “beyond the operating system” management of Intel® vPro™ computers. AMC extends fully featured Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) into the Cloud and on to Internet devices, outside of corporate networks, making it mobility viable and cost efficient for large and small organizations.
“Our development has come a long way and I would like to thank Intel for making this remarkable technology available. I believe that Active Management Cloud will help large and small businesses to fully benefit from Intel® AMT. The new delivery model has potential to significantly broaden the application of Intel® AMT within and outside the IT security and management space. It should also help medium and small businesses adopt Intel® vPro™,” stated Gary Schulman, CEO of Safe Frontier.
Intel® AMT is a set of hardware-based capabilities that enhance security and provide independent of the operating system (out-of-band) remote management of desktops, notebooks, kiosks, vending, medical and other equipment with Intel® vPro™ processors. Key features include: Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) remote control, booting device over network, remote power on/off/reboot, remote access to BIOS settings, system defense, and others.
