The new vPro Technology for desktop PCs also opens the door to new virtualized PC models and products aimed at the special needs of small businesses. Among the new business-class technology innovations, this 2008 version for the first time extends IT organizationsÃ¢â¬â¢ reach to protect and manage PCs beyond the corporate firewall.
