Intel is becoming a big player in the smart tv market and smart tv's has became a new frontier of vulnerability.

It's a guess but I think this hardware layer of protection wont be OS dependent, making it usable on all the different platforms, giving it's hardware maximum market exposure.
Hopefully it will also help on the server (xeon) side of things.

AMD is also working on this and has implemented enhanced virus protection with Windows and this might also be in continuing development.
