Acronis, a cyber protection company, has improved its defence against advanced file-less attacks using Intel® Threat Detection Technology (Intel® TDT), which leverages Intel’s integrated GPU to offload memory scanning operations from the CPU. Acronis is the latest company to integrate Intel® TDT to enhance its security products. Acronis researchers have witnessed new types of malware and attack vectors on enterprises, including polymorphic malware and file-less attacks, as cyber threats continue to evolve and grow.
Many cyber threats utilize an in-memory-only approach which can be hard to detect. Intel® TDT technology allows Acronis cyber protection solutions to free resources while scanning hard disk drives (HDD) and memory, resulting in improved system performance. Acronis researchers found that while scanning all the processes in system memory on supported CPUs, Intel® TDT reduced the load on the CPU 2.4 times, by offloading the job to the Intel® integrated GPU.

The Acronis solution combines complete single-agent cyber protection with Intel® TDT, resulting in lower CPU utilization. This allows more compute capacity for productivity and office software used by Acronis end customers while compute-intensive security operations run in Intel®’s integrated GPU. The innovation of Intel® TDT will be available through Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, Acronis Cyber Protect and Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office solutions.
