Boost Security and Performance

Enhance security and compression performance in cloud, networking, big data, and storage applications—for data in motion and at rest. Now you can accelerate compute-intensive operations with Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT).

Eliminate Roadblocks

Accelerate applications by adding Intel® QAT to a software-defined infrastructure (SDI) environment. It provides a software-enabled foundation for security, authentication, and compression, and significantly increases the performance and efficiency of standard platform solutions.

Intel® QAT improves performance across applications and platforms. That includes symmetric encryption and authentication, asymmetric encryption, digital signatures, RSA, DH, and ECC, and lossless data compression.

Ensure Trusted Key Management

Intel® Key Protection Technology (Intel® KPT) is a new technology within Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. It’s enabled by Intel® QAT to help secure private key management.
