System Defense

The System Defense feature enables applications to selectively isolate Ethernet and IP protocol flows over the network. Using Intel AMT, a management console can block or isolate client PCs from specific TCP/IP flows regardless of the operating state of the operating system.


The System Defense feature is being deprecated. Starting from Intel ME 18.0 firmware, the feature will no longer be available.
