ASUS notebooks with built-in theft protection

Absolute Software : 20 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Computrace anti-theft technology now features as standard firmware on ASUS B50 notebooks
Absolute Software has announced today that the popular ASUS B50 line of business notebooks now provide embedded support for Absolute's mobile computer anti-theft and management solution Computrace.

Computrace is shipped in a non-active state and can be activated in the firmware by customers if they buy a subscription to Absolute's security services.

'Absolute's Computrace is an essential layer of security for our highly mobile notebook computers,' said Kevin Huang, Senior Marketing Director of ASUS. 'With Absolute embedded in the firmware, we can give our executive customers access to the recovery capabilities of Computrace so they can rest assured that their notebook and data are safe.'

ASUS' B50 takes every consideration of the business executive's varied computing needs for power, reliability, mobility, and security into account. The B50A offers additional levels of security with an integrated biometric fingerprint scanner and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure login and encryption. These features help to ensure that data and transactions through the notebook are secure, yet remain efficient and easy to use.

With embedded support for Computrace, ASUS customers can fully benefit from subscriptions to Absolute's complete range of Computrace anti-theft and management solutions - with tamper-resistant, self-healing capabilities.

Computrace delivers the ability to:.

* Track and manage computers on the LAN or in the field
* Remotely delete sensitive information for regulatory compliance
* Physically recover lost or stolen computers
* Easily inventory all computers regardless of their location
* Remotely inventory software licenses
* Detect hardware changes or prohibited software installations
* Conduct post-theft forensic investigations into computer use

'ASUS is one of the world's top 10 notebook manufacturers. They are recognised for their expertise in creating notebooks for the mobile business executive; those who are frequent travellers and as a result, often find themselves in areas at high risk for theft,' said John Livingston, Chairman and CEO of Absolute.

'According to the Ponemon Institute, 53% of mobile professionals carry confidential information on their notebook computers. By providing the ability to delete files and identify if files have been accessed, Absolute is focused on providing comprehensive security for that sensitive information should a notebook become lost or stolen.'
