HARDENED AT THE CORE: AMD EPYC 7002 SERIES SECURITY

Posted on 2019/08/08


HARDENED AT THE CORE: Help protect your critical data with AMD EPYC technologies for both physical and virtual threats. Powered by an industry-leading secure co-processor, AMD EPYC helps maintain a secure compute environment from power-on to runtime.

Leadership Performance: With up to 64 high performance cores per SOC, 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors deliver world record13 performance with X times generational performance increases3 outpacing Intel Xeon Platinum 8280L by up to XX%4. 

1. 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ Processors power the highest-performing x86 servers for the modern data center with World Record performance across the major industry benchmarks. 
2. Uniquely designed for modern data center workloads, AMD EPYC™ 7002 processors provide an ideal combination of features to help unlock performance and redefine economics in:
  • VIRTUALIZATION AND CLOUD: World record virtualization performance5 and core capacity help customers reduce TCO, increase revenue streams with existing capacity, and provide advanced security features to private and public cloud customers alike. 
  • CONTAINERS AND MICROSERVICES: improve response time with high core-to-container ratios and near linear scaling of container capacity per server. 
  • IN-MEMORY DATABASES: Massive memory footprint and industry leading I/O allow large numbers of NVMe drives for fast, in memory performance. 
  • HPC: highest core count, highest DRAM capacity9, highest I/O capacity for GPU acceleration and highest-speed interconnect in the industry. 
  • AI/ML WORKLOADS: More PCIe Gen4 lanes than any other x86 server processor12, able to support the most directly connected (without PCIe switch) GPUs per server in the industry. 
  • Leadership Security: Featuring advanced security features and a silicon embedded security subsystem, AMD EPYC™ Family of Processors are ‘Hardened at the Core’ helping customers guard their most important assets, their data. New 2nd Gen AMD EPYC™ processors, now can cryptographically isolate up to 509 virtual machines per server using AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization with no application changes required.


AMD EPYC™ Family of Processors help customers protect their most important assets, their data. From performance-optimized countermeasures to help prevent certain side-channel vulnerabilities, to proactive encryption in memory, AMD EPYC™ provides advanced protection at scale for modern data center computing.

  • HELP PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS-CRITICAL DATA with a comprehensive set of security tools. AMD developed a suite of processor-based encryption and security elements that help protect data breaches by encrypting it to help limit risk.
  • RESTRICT INTERNAL VULNERABILITIES with encrypted memory. Attacks on the integrity of main system memory (such as cold-boot attacks) are fruitless because any data that might be obtained is encrypted. No modifications to applications required.
  • SAFEGUARD VIRTUAL AND CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE with built-in encryption for virtual machine memory. Help safeguard application privacy and integrity by enabling the encryption of each virtual machine and hypervisor using one of 509 available and unique encryption keys managed by a dedicated security processor.
  • SCRUTINIZE SOFTWARE BOOTS FOR CORRUPTION AMD EPYC enables a secure root of trust that validates the initial BIOS software boots to detect and help mitigate corruption.
