To help keep your customers’ IT infrastructures secure, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Gen10 Servers offer unique security features, down to the silicon. With HPE Secure Compute Lifecycle, your customers get best-in-class innovations and firmware protection, malware detection, and firmware recovery. Give your customers a new security foundation with Gen10 Servers.

Silicon Root of Trust
With HPE Gen10 Servers, HPE offers the first industry-standard servers to include a silicon root of trust built into the hardware. The silicon root of trust provides a series of trusted handshakes from lowest level firmware to BIOS and software to ensure a known good state. From this silicon root of trust server design to specific networking and storage options HPE has built in security features that help your customers prevent, detect, and recover from cyber-attacks.


Integrated Lights-Out
HPE Gen10 Servers are offered with HPE Integrated Lights-Out 5 (iLO5). The HPE iLO subsystem, a standard component of HPE ProLiant Servers, simplifies server setup, health monitoring, power and thermal optimization, and remote server administration. With an intelligent microprocessor, secure memory, and dedicated network interface, iLO offers varying degrees of encryption and security.

The iLO5 chipset provides an unprecedented level of hardware security with its silicon root of trust. The silicon root of trust:
- Is based in the silicon chip hardware itself
- Is virtually impossible to alter
- Enables firmware to be authenticated as far back as the supply chain
- Provides a secure startup process
