Multilayered Security for the Enterprise

Intel® Threat Detection Technology Explained

Cyberattack monitoring and increased security at the hardware level

In recent years, cryptocurrencies have increased in value, causing attackers to shift their focus to cryptojacking. These attacks have evolved to evade typical anti-malware defenses, with techniques such as cloaking in a virtual machine, binary obfuscation, or memory-only payloads. To combat these threats Intel® Threat Detection Technology (TDT) applies machine learning to the CPU telemetry and detects malware code execution fingerprints irrespective of obfuscation techniques. Intel TDT signals the attack to Microsoft Defender, which applies numerous remediation countermeasures while preserving the user’s computing experience.
Watch this video to learn more about how Intel® TDT and Microsoft Defender work together to protect against cryptojacking.
