vPro

An x86 chip platform from Intel that supports hardware-based remote systems management. It was introduced with the Core 2 Duo CPU and chipset and features Intel's Active Management Technology (AMT). Using a third-party management console such as OpenView, LANdesk or Altiris, system administrators can wake up, inventory, diagnose, repair and push security updates and patches to all vPro systems in the network.

Active Management Technology (AMT)
The AMT chipset provides an out-of-band communications channel that works no matter what functioning or non-functioning state the OS is in. It provides a non-volatile memory for critical system data that cannot be compromised, and it has the ability to isolate a PC from the network if threatened or infected. See x86 chip platform and Intel Core.
