In the information age, businesses have an increasing amount of data that they need to protect. According a recent study by the consulting firm IDCglobal spending on security solutions and services is projected to be $219 billion in 2023, an increase of 12.1% over 2022.
Additionally, investments in cybersecurity-related hardware, software, and services are expected to reach nearly $300 billion by 2026, driven by the continuing threat of cyberattacks, the demands to provide a secure hybrid work environment, and the need to comply with privacy and data governance requirements.
“Strengthening the use of corporate notebooks is crucial, since employees often work outside the office and use their personal devices, which increases the risk of vulnerabilities and malicious attacks,” contextualizes Mónica Casas, Regional Sales Leader of the Commercial segment for AMD Spanish-Speaking South America.
Currently, the company has a broad portfolio of products together with the main original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such as Lenovo and HP. Corporate equipment -whether laptops, desktop PCs, or workstations- powered by AMD Ryzen PRO Processors, offer an enhanced level of security thanks to its built-in hardware features.
In its quest to support business continuity, AMD has collaborated with Microsoft on its Secured-core PC initiative, which protects the operating system (OS) against firmware vulnerabilities and prevents unauthorized access. authorized to equipment and data. “These are the first x86 CPUs in the world to integrate the Microsoft Pluton processor to reinforce the Windows 11 OS with chip protection for the cloud, taking care of user identity, data and applications”, explains the executive. This means that even if a device is compromised, information in memory will be encrypted, thanks to the extra layer provided by integrated AMD Memory Guard technology.
In addition, AMD Ryzen PRO Processors have specifications that enable centralized backup control, offering a feature set for remote management, making it easy to manage updates and protection settings across the enterprise.
“AMD Ryzen PRO computing solutions are designed to meet the main challenges of this new era of work. They are key allies for remote, on-site or hybrid workers, who not only need extra performance, but also management capacity and the most powerful security features”, concludes Mónica Casas.
