Processors

NOTE: Global Standard Products (GSP) are a subset of Dells relationship products that are managed for availability and

synchronized transitions on a worldwide basis. They ensure the same platform is available for purchase globally. This allows

customers to reduce the number of configurations managed on a worldwide basis, thereby reducing their costs. They also

enable companies to implement global IT standards by locking in specific product configurations worldwide.

Device Guard (DG) and Credential Guard (CG) are the new security features that are only available on Windows 10 Enterprise today.

Device Guard is a combination of enterprise-related hardware and software security features that, when configured together, will lock a device down so that it can only run trusted applications. If it is not a trusted application, it cannot run.

Credential Guard uses virtualization-based security to isolate secrets (credentials) so that only privileged system software can access them. Unauthorized access to these secrets can lead to credential theft attacks. Credential Guard prevents these attacks by protecting NTLM password hashes and Kerberos Ticket Granting Tickets.

NOTE: Processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor availability is subject to change and may vary by

region/country.

Out of Band Systems Management Intel Standard Manageability

Intel Standard Manageability (ISM) must be configured in our factory at the time of purchase, as it is NOT field upgradable. ISM offers out-of-band management and DASH compliance https://registry.dmtf.org/registry/results/ field_initiative_name%3A%22DASH%201.0%22. ISM offers a limited set of out-of-band features like remote power on/off, Serial-over-LAN redirect, Wake-on-LAN, etc. ISM leverages the same capabilities that were available with Intels Active Management Technology (AMT) version 5.0.

To learn more about Intel ISM, visit Intels website at: https://software.intel.com/en-us/blogs/2009/03/27/what-is-standard- manageability
