Intel vPro: Beyond VPN

Downtime is lost productivity, every time. As an IT service provider, your job is to get your clients back up and running quickly and efficiently, but VPN only enables you to remote control a computer’s keyboard, video and mouse when the computer is operational. Intel’s vPro KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) technology runs below the OS at the hardware layer to enable remote management and connectivity even if the OS is not operational or if a PC is shutdown.

Intel’s integration with LabTech vastly reduces the setup requirements to fully leverage Intel vPro across client sites. LabTech natively inventories Intel vPro capable machines, supports single click provisioning (vPro 6.5 and higher), and power control—right out of the box! Intel vPro KVM support is available to LabTech partners at no additional cost.

Intel vPro Technology Delivers

  • Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) enables IT service providers to remotely manage computing issues and achieve inventory control
  • Intel’s vPro KVM lets you boot to BIOS, boot to remote ISO and remotely reload the OS if needed – all with a full graphical view of the user’s screen
  • Remote power cycling capabilities let you automate after-hours shutdown
  • Intel vPro runs below the OS at the hardware layer and enables you to remote control (VNC) through the hardware, even if the OS is not operational or if a PC is shutdown
  • Intel vPro is built into the client’s PC, so there is nothing additional to purchase

Reduce Costs, Minimize Downtime and Much More!

  • With vPro 6.5 and higher, LabTech users can inventory and remotely provision (i.e. enable and configure for use) vPro capable machines with a single click, without the need to manually visit each machine
  • LabTech supports vPro KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) capabilities with no manual prerequisite setup or labor requirements — simply click and remotely connect and control
  • Intel vPro-based PCs typically experience half the average downtime as a non-vPro PC
  • KVM capabilities minimize site visits that would otherwise have required a truck roll
  • Remote power cycling capabilities let you automate after-hours shutdown, reducing your clients’ energy costs
