Most Intel vPro® platform features, like PC performance and hardware-enhanced security features, work and
deliver value right out of the box. But if you want to take full advantage of it, deploying the free Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel® EMA) enables full remote manageability functionality.
The Intel vPro platform integrates a suite of transformative technologies that have received extra tuning and
testing for demanding business workloads. Rigorous validation by Intel and industry leaders helps ensure that
every device built on the Intel vPro platform sets the standard for business. With each component and technology
designed for professional grade, IT can be confident in one validated solution that brings together business-class
performance, hardware-enhanced security, modern remote manageability, and PC fleet stability.
But how do you know if you’re getting all the benefits of the Intel vPro platform? What actions do you need to take
to enable and activate all the features of the platform that you want? In some cases, there is nothing you need to
do beyond choosing the right versions of products from device manufacturers and ISVs who have already built the
benefits of the Intel vPro platform into their solutions. In other cases, such as with remote device-management
functionality, you can extract much more value from the platform by enabling or activating technologies that are
part of the Intel vPro platform.
This guide provides an overview of your options and a roadmap for how to get started using Intel® Endpoint
Management Assistant (Intel EMA) to take advantage of Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT).
