Does your business use Intel’s AMT? Then be cautious!

Now researchers have discovered a new flaw that affects devices using Intel’s Active Management Technology (AMT). The flaw could allow security controls such as BIOS or Bitlocker passwords to be bypassed if someone got physical access to a device using AMT. This would allow a cybercriminal to later gain remote access to the compromised laptop. In this blog post you can learn that how Intel AMT stacks up to the competition.

AMT is a management feature of Intel products that enables administrators to remotely manage devices. The feature is found on devices such as laptops, desktops, and servers. It works by using a small secondary processor located on the motherboard, and you can connect to a system running AMT by using a variety of tools. Other important factors to consider when researching alternatives to Intel Intel Active Management Technology include ease of use and reliability.

Staying safe

If you don’t need AMT, you should disable it in the device BIOS straightaway.

If you do need it, change the default ‘admin’ password to something that is hard to guess.

We also recommend corporate laptops are never left out of a user’s sight, especially in public places such as airports.
