IT managers are facing constraints on space, power, and costs. In the midst of these growing demands, a new class of solutions is emerging to transform the data center through cloud-based architectures. Realizing the benefits of cloud computing requires a cohesive set of open yet well-defined standards that operate across IT infrastructures. Intel launched the Cloud 2015 Vision to help businesses implement cloud computing solutions that are federated, automated, and client-aware. What this means is that new approaches to IT automation will offer the promise to swiftly respond to the demands of users in new, cost-effective ways. And federated clouds will allow rapid scale of computing resources, while client-aware clouds deliver optimized applications to any end-user device.

Visit the Intel® Cloud Builders site to learn more about how Intel’s Ecosystem Fellow Travelers are working with us to make the Intel Cloud 2015 Vision a reality by enabling proven solutions today for more simple, secure, and efficient data centers. There you can see how Intel and the ecosystem are engaging in plans to develop solutions for the future to help companies on the journey to cloud. Then take a moment to download one of the Reference Architectures to help you build and optimize your cloud infrastructure.

 

Data Protection


Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI)


What is it?
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm is now widely used across the software ecosystem to protect network traffic, personal data, and corporate IT infrastructures. Data protection or encrypting data—using mathematical algorithms to make data unreadable by unauthorized entities but reproducible by authorized entities—is frequently specified or recommended as a way to ensure that data can be best protected.

Intel® AES-NI is a new instruction set for accelerating the encryption of data in the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series and the Intel® Core™ i5 processor 600 series. It is composed of seven new instructions that accelerate encryption and decryption, improve key generation and matrix manipulation, and aid in carry-less multiplication. Intel AES-NI also helps alleviate the performance challenges inherent in cryptographic processing.

Why Intel® AES-NI matters.
Encryption is a well-established method for data protection. It is most commonly used to secure transactions across networks, such as the Internet, where personal or financial information needs to be kept private. It is also often used in combination with authentication schemes to prevent undesired disclosure when data is being stored for later use—such as on an encrypted drive or as an encrypted file stored in a cloud-based service.

How it works.

 

 

By implementing some complex and costly sub-steps of the AES algorithm in hardware, Intel AES-NI strengthens and accelerates execution of the AES application. With the addition of the seven new steps mentioned above, encryption of data can now happen faster, with greater security and more frequency.

Data Security

Today’s world runs on computing devices that are connected to each other through the global Web. Schools, hospitals, social networks, and even national defense systems are all driven by these technologies. Conservative estimates suggest that by 2015 we will have over 10 billion devices in active use—and the vast majority of these will be mobile and Web-enabled.

As our dependency on computing devices grows, so does our exposure to malicious code, viruses, cyber espionage, and malware. In June 2009, Kaspersky Lab, a well-known security specialist, detected the 25 millionth program designed for malicious intent. As a major provider of computing technology to the world, Intel Corporation takes its role in helping to protect users from attack very seriously. Below are the areas Intel believes are the cornerstones of secure computing environments:

Security assurance.

For Intel, creating more secure products means building to consistent and high design standards in everything we make. To understand where threats may emerge and to ensure that our standards maintain global currency, Intel regularly consults with global security experts and the security research community.

Standards and policy.

Due to Intel’s central role in global computing technology development, we continue to support and contribute to key security standards through organizations such as the Trusted Computing Group (TCG). In addition, Intel influences regulation and legislation to ensure that we continue to deliver relevant and compliant technologies.

Security innovation.

Intel continues to enhance systems so they run more securely and can handle the growing workloads more efficiently. A key component of this approach is providing more robust, vulnerability-resistant platforms. This is increasingly important as attackers start targeting base components such as firmware and controllers.

 

 

New PCs for Your New Compute Environment

IT is changing at warp speed, and PCs must keep pace. That's why 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors bring smart performance and new capabilities to secure mobility, online rich media, and business operations optimization.


 


Protecting the Corporate Infrastructure
Intel Core vPro processors offer features that help protect corporate infrastructure from attacks and security breaches even as users continue to mix personal and professional roles and increase their mobility. These protective features include:

•Programmable defense filters that help to safeguard corporate infrastructure from unauthorized access. Policies, defined at the hardware level, monitor inbound and outbound network traffic or threats on a mobile client. If suspicious behavior is detected, the laptop can port-isolate or quarantine itself by cutting off its own access to network data.
