Why choose the power of Intel vPro® as part of a Device as a Service offer?

Imagine you’re at home or in the office and your Device as a Service package arrives. You open it up to find a brand new notebook and optimum accessories, and then you notice the label next to track pad that says 11th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro®.
That means your IT department has decided that you need a device equipped with the latest Intel processor technology that provides a crucial layer of security as well as the performance a professional needs.

What is Intel vPro®?

The Intel vPro® platform has been specially developed to meet the needs of today’s IT professionals and help them thrive in a rapidly changing digital world. With vPro® installed, computers have the necessary power to run big applications smoothly even when multiple browser tabs are open or you are taking part in a phone conference. 

What’s more, it comes with hardware-based protection for PCs built in that covers OS-layer security, application protection and advanced threat detection. Your IT department can manage, diagnose and upgrade your computer remotely as long as it is equipped with an Intel vPro® processor.

This not only takes a load off your IT team’s shoulders, but also boosts your employees’ workplace security.

Built-in security.

Cybersecurity threats will never go away, and that fact combined with the vulnerability of devices has pushed security to the top of the agenda for businesses. Cyberattacks can be launched from any computer and spread fast, which can cause downtime, loss of productivity and have enormous financial consequences.

Security, therefore, has to begin on the PC. Intel vPro® boosts security and enhances the management of desktops and notebooks that are outside the corporate firewall. It is also possible to diagnose and repair computers with issues remotely, even when the operating system is unresponsive.

This gives greater freedom to IT, avoids the needs for on-site service and reduces the time needed to get a computer up and running again.

Choose performance.

Nothing is more frustrating than a computer that gets slower and slower or needs several minutes to shut down.

Performance is crucial when it comes to handling the intensive levels of work thrown at us these days. On average, employees waste one entire working day every year waiting for their 3-year old computer to boot, impacting both the company’s finances as well as general productivity.

Choosing a computer with an Intel vPro® processor supports every user in boosting their productivity thanks to immediate high performance that handles workloads with ease—faster booting, quick and easy opening of large applications, faster data analysis, simplified connectivity, longer battery life and much more.

PCs with 11th Generation Intel Core™ vPro® processors are high-performance devices that combine important IT features (multi-layer security and comprehensive management features) with a good user experience, extraordinary responsiveness and a long battery life to help you power through tasks.

* The claim “On average, employees waste one entire working day every year waiting for their 3-year old computer to boot” refers to an online survey carried out in 2018 by J.Gold Associates, LLC. on behalf of Intel. In total, 3,297 respondents from SMEs in 16 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United States) answered questions related to the challenges and costs of deploying older computers. Based on one boot per day and an average boot time calculated by taking the midpoint of ranges possible to be selected in the survey for booting a PC older than 4 years, it was estimated that employees spend up to eight hours a year, switching on a three-year old PC (2.90 minutes boot time x 1 boot per day x 5 days a week x 52 weeks a year / 60 (to get hours) x use rate of 0.67 = 8.46 hours per year).
