“What’s possibly the most crucial components of the Gen10 portfolio are the enhancements to security—an advanced Secure Compute Lifecycle that includes firmware security, malware detection, and firmware recovery. If the iLO discovers that the firmware has been altered in any way, it enters a recovery mode whereby it can restore the firmware to a previously authenticated state, or to the version in which it left the factor.” – Krista Satterthwaite (HPE Director of Marketing)
