Administrators need to inventory, provision, patch, diagnose and repair PCs, even if those systems are powered o? or the operating system is not running. When in-person assistance is an option, users can experience significant interruptions in productivity. ...Security can be weakened as well; exposure to a new threat may be prolonged while technicians work to install patches, endangering the entire network. Remote management is the answer, and Atos and Intel have the solution: the Intel? vPro? platform that includes Intel? Active Management Technology (Intel? AMT) for remote PC management.
