Password management software provider Lamantine Software announced today that they have partnered with Intel to integrate Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) technology into Sticky Password’s software to provide hardware-enhanced security and increased ease-of-use.
Intel® SGX is a new security technology built into most 6th and 7th Gen Intel® Core processors that allows applications to store sensitive data inside encrypted enclaves at the very core of your PC—the silicon CPU.
Inside the sealed Intel® SGX enclave, the data is out of reach to advanced malware and threats, even if your computer has already been compromised or stolen.
Here are some of the features Intel® SGX adds to Sticky Password:
If your PC uses a 6th or 7th Gen Intel® Core processor, it’s likely that you can start enjoying the added protection of Intel® SGX by updating Sticky Password today.

Intel® SGX, is a new Intel technology built in to Core processors that allows developers to add the power of hardware-based security to their apps. Traditional security solutions use software to protect security credentials, opening the door to many potential vulnerabilities and exploits. Intel® Software Guard Extensions stores credentials in the hardware enclaves instead of the operating system or 3rd party software. Critical data is captured, encrypted, matched, and stored in hardware, closing the door and making it harder for even the most advanced threats to reach it.
When it comes to application security, software-only solutions are no longer the limit of what’s possible. The 6th and 7th Gen Intel® Core processors with Intel® Software Guard Extensions enable cutting-edge hardware-enhanced ID theft protection.
