Making cloud safer, one trusted computing pool at a time

As the cloud industry evolves, so does the volume, complexity and sophistication of attacks on IT infrastructure. Intel Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) provides hardware-assisted security technologies to build a secure foundation. Enable Intel TXT on your IBM Cloud bare metal servers to enhance your security portfolio and act as an additional method to secure your infrastructure.

Minimize risks that could cause the loss of business momentum.

Do your security and compliance teams require a trusted boot?

Ensure your systems start up in a known good state. The power of Intel TXT establishes a root of trust, providing the necessary underpinnings for successful evaluation of the computing platform and its protection. During the boot process, the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) holds the computer-generated keys for encryption, which essentially is a code that measures, extends, verifies and executes — over and over — to establish a system as trusted.
