Intel Management

What is Intel Management?

This program provides the Intel Management Engine for supported notebooks with supported operating systems. The Intel management Components monitor the installed Intel hardware, such as chip sets, storage, and other components. They will notify you if there are problems, updated drivers, and other information about those components. These components installed by the computer manufacturer automatically during the OS isntallation. Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) is hardware-based technology for remotely managing and securing PCs out-of-band. Intel AMT is available in desktop PCs with Intel Core 2 processor with Intel vPro technology and available in laptop PCs with Centrino or Centrino 2 platform with vPro technology. Intel AMT is hardware and firmware technology that builds certain functionality into business PCs in order to monitor, maintain, update, upgrade, and repair PCs. Intel AMT is part of the Intel Management Engine, which is built into PCs with Intel vPro technology. AMT is not intended to be used by itself; it is intended to be used with a software management application. It gives a management application (and thus, the system administrator who uses it) better access to the PC down the wire, in order to remotely and securely do tasks that are difficult or sometimes impossible when working on a PC that does not have remote functionalities built into it. Intel AMT includes hardware-based remote management, security, power-management, and remote-configuration features. These features allow an IT technician to access an AMT featured PC remotely. Intel AMT relies on a hardware-based out-of-band (OOB) communication channel that operates below the OS level, the channel is independent of the state of the OS (present, missing, corrupted, down). The communication channel is also independent of the PC's power state, the presence of a management agent, and the state of many hardware components (such as hard disk drives and memory).


It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software installer includes 7 files and is usually about 13.02 MB (13,654,270 bytes).
