Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) is a feature provided by Intel for remote administration. If you happen to have a corporate laptop, odds are you too have AMT built into your system. To a sysadmin, AMT eases access to machines for the sake of assisting employees with technical issues, even if the hard drive has failed or been affected by ransomware. This is due primarily to the fact that AMT does not require a functioning operating system for accessibility. Its configuration and operating environment reside completely within its own dedicated hardware!
