For Security and Compression Acceleration


Improving Performance Across the Data Center

Intel® QuickAssist Technology improves performance and efficiency across the data center by offloading servers from handling compute-intensive operations.  

Server, networking, big data, and storage applications use Intel® QuickAssist Technology for:

  • Bulk cryptography: symmetric encryption and authentication, and cipher operations 
  • Public key cryptography: asymmetric encryption, digital signatures, and key exchange
  • Compression: lossless data compression for data in flight and at rest

By including Intel® QuickAssist Technology in your SDI environment, you can increase efficiencies for applications that use security and compression acceleration.

Intel QuickAssist Technology enables standard solutions with software enabled features that provide a foundation for security, authentication, and storage, while significantly increasing performance and efficiency.



Intel® QuickAssist Technology integrates hardware acceleration in Intel® Chipsets for widely used, compute-intensive algorithms. By offloading these operations to hardware accelerators, you can:

  • Reduce demands on the server
  • Support more secured clients
  • Use less CPU cycles

See how OpenSSL*, Intel® QuickAssist Technology, and NGINX* deliver asynchronous advantages for web servers.


Hardware-accelerating SSL with Intel® QuickAssist Technology frees up significant processor cycles to:

  • Encrypt information across networks
  • Offload compute-intense security protocols
  • Support more secure throughput
