Security in servers is no longer an afterthought. It’s a key consideration in the choice of a server provider and platform. Dell PowerEdge Servers with AMD EPYC processors use a multi-layer, end-to-end approach of security to help ensure that users’ data and assets are protected.
The Multiple Security Features that Dell build in to PowerEdge, supports the AMD EPYC hardware security features that has being built in at a silicon level with AMD infinity Guard.
5 Reasons Why AMD Infinity Guard Matters for Security
AMD EPYC™ processors are designed with a sophisticated suite of security technologies called AMD Infinity Guard(1). Built-in at the silicon level, AMD Infinity Guard helps organizations take control of security and decrease risks to their most important assets.
- Modernize with a multilayered approach to security
Implement security features designed to be highly resistant to complex attacks, from BIOS manipulation to in-memory return-oriented programming (ROP) and virtualized malicious hypervisor attacks. AMD Infinity Guard also complements many ecosystem software and hardware solutions.
2. Establish a strong foundation for platform security
Help mitigate malware with the AMD EPYC™ hardware “root of trust,” an embedded security checkpoint designed to validate the initial BIOS software boot without corruption
3. Achieve full memory encryption
Help protect against internal and physical attacks, such as certain cold boot attacks. With full memory encryption, data is encrypted even if memory is physically removed from the server.
4. Help ensure privacy in virtualized environments
Encrypt memory data for each virtual machine. This aids in protecting confidentiality of your data even if a malicious virtual machine finds a way into your virtual machine’s memory.
5. Seamless x86 application support
Take advantage of security features fast. AMD Infinity Guard is designed to work seamlessly with your x86 applications — without having to modify code.
Built-in at the silicon level, AMD Infinity Guard offers the advanced capabilities required to help defend against internal and external threats and keep your data safe with virtually zero impact to system performance.
