ESET has set out to integrate Intel® Threat Detection Technology (Intel® TDT) into its multi-layered cybersecurity technology suite.
Recognizing the complex and evolving nature of ransomware, an ever more formidable threat to customers’ work and personal lives, ESET will enhance its software-based detection technologies with a ransomware detection only Intel hardware can deliver. With progress in technological innovations often bringing new tools for the sustained growth and security of SMBs, the integration of Intel TDT means that ESET endpoint security software running on Intel-based PCs can deliver superior ransomware protection.
Due to the devastating impacts of past ransomware attacks and the increasing complexity of maintaining secure endpoint defenses, ransomware remains a top concern across the industry. To better address this, integrating ransomware detection improvements to ESET endpoint security solutions will provide enhanced immunity to most detection bypasses. Furthermore, with Intel TDT machine learning constantly evolving and progressing, the ability of ESET endpoint security solutions to detect derivative variants of ransomware threats will progress in lockstep.
For ESET and its clients, the value proposition of this collaboration lies in the parallel benefits of using Intel TDT machine learning models to assist with the detection of ransomware and simultaneously off-loading these processing demands to the Intel integrated graphics controller (GPU), keeping overall system performance high.
The benefits of this integration will become available later this year in an upcoming release of ESET’s endpoint security products. In the first round of releases, ESET will focus on endpoints with 9th Gen and newer Intel Core™ and Intel vPro Windows based PCs, which are capable of leveraging Intel TDT out-of-the-box.
