McAfee Drive Encryption out-of-band management

Out-of-band management allows the administrator to connect to a computer's management controller when the computer is turned off, in sleep or hibernate mode, or unresponsive through the operating system.

Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is a hardware-based technology for remotely managing and securing Intel® AMT systems using out-of-band communication. Part of the Intel® Management Engine, which is built into systems with Intel® vPro technology, Intel® AMT allows network administrators to maintain, manage, and protect the Intel® AMT client systems through hardware-assisted security and manageability capabilities.

The DEDeep extension, available with Drive Encryption and the McAfee ePO Deep Command product, uses Intel® AMT to allow out-of-band encryption management of Intel® AMT systems, locked at the Drive Encryption Pre-Boot screen.
