Intel today in a blog post announced that it is bringing a new
feature Accelerated Memory Scanning which enables virus
scanners to check for malware in Windows computers. This scan
is possible with the scanners having to rely on graphics chips.

The new feature will not be using any CPU power which will help
the processor load from dropping down to 2 percent from 20
percent. Antivirus apps on the other hand use CPU power which
effects the performance of the device, hence with this new
feature, Intel plans to reduce the CPU usage along with
increasing the battery life for laptops.

We already know the partnership of Intel and Microsoft and it
will be the Redmond Giant which will be the first company to
adopt this new technology which will be made available in the
Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection by default for
enterprise users.

Apart from introducing the new Accelerated memory Scanning
feature the company has also announced a new system “Intel
Advanced Platform Telemetry” which will help in blocking
advanced threats.

The feature will be using the machine learning algorithms which
will in improving the performance of the CPU with the feature
as well. Cisco will be the first company which will be adopting
the new Intel Advanced Platform Telemetry.

Intel is working on increasing the security of its products due
to the recent Meltdown and Spectre fiasco. The next generation
chips to be launched by Intel will be coming with additional
security which will help to secure the chips from future block

The company has already promised that its next generation
processors to be launched in 2018 will be free of the Meltdown
and Spectre bugs and will be more secure with the help of the
new technologies the company has launched.
