Acronis has integrated Intel Threat Detection Technology into several solutions. With this, this security vendor’s platform offers better protection against new and more developed forms of malware.

According to Acronis, malware is becoming increasingly sophisticated. Consider the rapid rise of so-called polymorphic and fileless malware. These malware often use in-memory attack paths and are therefore more difficult to detect. Especially since scanning for these threats requires much more processor processing power.

Offload to integrated Intel GPU

Acronis research shows that using Intel Threat Detection Technology (TDT) simplifies the detection of these advanced malware. The technology helps Acronis’ security solutions free up processing power while scanning hard drives and working memory. As a result, the security solutions should deliver better and faster system performance.

The intentional technology moves memory scanning work to the integrated Intel GPU, relieving the CPU. When Acronis solutions with this technology scan all processes in system memory, this relieves up to 2.4 times the work capacity of the respective processors.

More efficiency in CPU usage

Ultimately, this results in more efficiency and lower CPU usage. In this way, the freed-up capacity of the CPU can be used for productivity and office solutions of the end users.

The Intel TDT is now integrated into the security vendor’s Acronis Cyber Cloud, Acronis Cyber Protect and Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office solutions.
