Trusted Platform Module for Robust, Hardware-Based Security
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a hardware chip integrated on the motherboard that securely encrypts data, reducing the risks posed by hackers looking to capture password and encryption keys to sensitive data. TPM adds an additional layer of security and allows notebooks to run applications more securely, making transactions and communications more trustworthy. When used in conjunction with an optional security software package, it provides greatly improved overall system security, file protection capabilities, and email/privacy safeguards. TPM enables stronger security than that delivered by the BIOS, operating system, or any non-TPM application.
