Intel® Data Center Blocks for Business - PFR Server Block Brief

As security threats continue to evolve and increase, hackers are looking for new ways to infiltrate critical infrastructure. This will include hacking the lowest level of the platform, the firmware, where threats are most difficult to detect. While technologies exist to protect the higher layers of the infrastructure stack, customers also need assurance that the platform launching these security technologies can be trusted.

To address this, Intel has developed the Intel® Data Center Blocks for Business - PFR Server Block. Featuring Intel® Platform Firmware Resilience (Intel® PFR) technology, the PFR Server Block enables platform security from the factory all the way to power-on in a customer's data center. With this offering, customers can prevent firmware from being intercepted, detect firmware corruption, and automatically restore a system if malware is detected. This is an ideal solution for security-sensitive industries including government, financial institutions, and critical infrastructure.

Intel is simplifying adoption of this technology through fully-validated, configure-to-order systems featuring Intel® Xeon® processors, Intel® Server Boards, and Intel® Server Chassis to provide a solution that customers can deploy quickly and with confidence.
