Our world is more connected than ever and as 5G technology continues to connect more things around us together, keeping those devices, and the data that travels through them, secure is more important than ever. As the nature and severity of cyberattacks continues to increase around the world, we need more advanced security that starts at the deepest part of our devices. 

If recent events have shown us anything it’s that cyber criminals are becoming more capable and are targeting a wider range of companies than ever before. If your business has not yet deployed top-of-the-line, modern security features across your devices, it’s only a matter of time before your data is attacked.

AMD is a company that has been building and securing the chips and processors that power our devices for years and their new AMD Ryzen™ PRO 5000 Series Mobile Processors offer a whole new level of security.

AMD has engineered a multilayered, modern security approach into their new Ryzen PRO processors:

These new processors are designed from the ground up with multiple layers of security with the entire purpose of protecting and securing sensitive data from even the most sophisticated attacks. 

The protection starts with the architecture itself. It is designed from the ground up with security features specifically designed to defend against the sophisticated attacks we’re seeing from increasingly capable cyber criminals. 

Lost or stolen PCs can often cause a lot of headache for IT departments and business owners as they scramble to erase or destroy any sensitive data left on the computer. AMD Ryzen™ Pro Processors are the world’s first processor family with real time, full system memory encryption as a standard feature for business laptops. This feature is enabled by default for Microsoft Secured-core PCs on all AMD PRO platforms. 

AMD Secure Processor is an integrated on-chip security processor designed to help protect sensitive data and validate code before it’s executed.  When enabled, it helps protect your system & data from unauthorized software and applications running on your device.

One of the most common and detrimental ways hackers manipulate computers to access sensitive data is by modifying the memory to perform previously dis-allowed functions. AMD Shadow Stack builds hardware protections directly into the processor to mitigate the ability to modify memory to help make sure your data is safe and secure.

The best defense comes from everyone working together; that’s why quarterbacks have an entire line of players protecting them. With their new Ryzen PRO processors, AMD has partnered with several major OEM manufacturers, including Microsoft, to enable and compliment already existing enterprise-level security features. 

AMD Ryzen™ PRO Processors fully support the Microsoft Secured-core PC initiative, which relies on a combined effort from silicon providers, OEM partners, and Microsoft to provide deeply integrated hardware, firmware, and software for enhanced device security.  AMD PRO processors provide an added layer of enhanced security on Secure-core PCs by enabling memory encryption by default.

Businesses can no longer afford to rely on lax and outdated security measures for their laptops and just hope to never get attacked. Data is quickly becoming the revenue of businesses and criminals alike and, as your company generates and passes more and more data across your organization, you need to be confident that everything is safe and secure.
