As risks accelerate in volume and variety, AMD continues to
believe that meaningful protection for today's PCs requires a
carefully multi-layered approach that relies on best-in-class
security controls and capabilities embedded directly into hardware,
software, and firmware.
This paper explores AMD Ryzen™ PRO 5000 Series mobile
processors' security features and the part they play in a
multi-layered approach to device security. These features include
- Everything built with security in mind – AMD Zen-based core
architectures provide a strong security foundation. AMD's security
architecture helps to reduce exposure of attacks, can reduce
downtime, may require fewer patches, and can help to improve the
total cost of ownership.
- An integrated hardware root of trust – AMD keeps improving its
silicon architecture with each generation, helping to improve
effectiveness against future cyberattacks.
- Integrated security features, from firmware to OS – Once the
initial firmware and OEM BIOS are authenticated, control passes to
the OS through a secure-boot process that continues the chain of
trust using Root of Trust, anchored in the hardware.
- Better memory protection: AMD memory guard – AMD Ryzen™ PRO
series mobile processors were the first commercial processors on
the market to provide technology that helps protect user data by
encrypting the complete system memory contents as a standard
