ConnectWise teams up with Intel to Further Strengthen Cybersecurity for SMBs

ConnectWise plans to expanded its cyber security collaboration with Intel.

Intel Threat Detection Technology (Intel TDT) helps identify cyber threats and detects malicious activity. ConnectWise will integrate Intel TDT technology within the Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) software agent to allow RMM to identify and respond to security incidents rapidly.

“By utilising Intel TDT to enable ransomware and cryptojacking detection in our RMM software, ConnectWise is fulfilling our mission to be a trusted security partner that enables our customers to conduct business in an unencumbered fashion,” said Raffael Marty, General Manager, Cybersecurity, ConnectWise. “While this does not eliminate the need for customers to have a comprehensive security strategy, it is a step toward helping to tame the financial and system performance losses for SMB customers that have fewer resources to dedicate towards security.”

ConnectWise RMM will leverage unique CPU telemetry from Intel TDT to provide joint customers with unparalleled detection of ransomware and cryptojacking attacks – whether they come from a native app, within the browser, or a virtual machine. With Intel TDT, ConnectWise can detect and mitigate the most advanced attacks with greater precision and obtain more consistent results across all types of workloads.  

 “SMBs are seeking simplified and turn-key cybersecurity solutions that are tightly integrated into their overall PC fleet management.  By integrating Intel TDT, ConnectWise customers on Intel-based devices will have access to powerful CPU-based threat detection that can be remediated from their RMM consoles with no additional security software to be purchased or implemented, “said Carla Rodríguez, Sr. Director, Ecosystem Partner Enablement, Intel Corp. “Similarly, Intel now offers Intel vPro Essentials processors that work with ConnectWise solutions to provide a right-sized security option for SMBs. It’s a winning combination for companies with limited security expertise.”
