“Microsoft's (NASDAQ:MSFT) Defender for Endpoint security solution is expanding its use of Intel's (NASDAQ:INTC) silicon-based Threat Detection Technology to include CPU-based cryptomining machine learning detection.
The expansion helps protect users against cryptojacking, where malware is used to access the power and resources of personal or business computers for cryptocurrency mining or to steal cryptocurrency wallets.
“This partnership is one example of our ongoing investment and deep collaboration with technology partners across the industry. We work closely with chipmakers to explore and adopt new hardware-based defenses that deliver robust and resilient protection against cyberthreats,” says Karthik Selvaraj, principal security research manager at Microsoft. “As organizations look to simplify their security investments, built-in platform-based security technologies, such as the integration of Intel TDT with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, combine best of breed in a streamlined solution.”
