Computrace persistence technology embedded into tablet firmware
VANCOUVER July 26, 2011
As a direct result of this technology collaboration, built upon past market success, Lenovo and Absolute customers can now maintain a constant connection back to each tablet in their deployment. This revolutionizes the concept of endpoint security, enabling joint customers to perform remote security and administrative functions on a ThinkPad Tablet regardless of who is using it or where it is located.
How Computrace Technology Works
Computrace products are powered by the Absolute Software patented Computrace persistence technology. When embedded in the firmware of computers and tablets from leading computer manufacturers, Computrace can survive operating system re-installations, as well as hard-drive reformats, replacements and re-imaging, helping to ensure that the service is there when it’s needed most.* The Computrace Agent is virtually undetectable and calls home to the Absolute Monitoring Center with IT asset information including the physical location of each device. If a computer is reported stolen, the Absolute Theft Recovery Team works on behalf of the customer to gather evidence from the computer to identify where it is and who’s using it, then they work with local police to get the computer back. Customers can also remotely delete data, freeze a device, and remotely retrieve files to secure the device (and the data it contains) – a reliable contingency when other data protection solutions fail.
