Absolute Software anti-theft technology embedded in new ASUS computers

Company launches its B50 business notebooks with Computrace solution embedded in firmware

When a computer is stolen, the Absolute Theft Recovery Team uses information sent via Computrace to investigate computer thefts, document evidence and work with local law enforcement to physically recover missing computers and prosecute computer thieves. To augment their investigation, the team deploys a powerful set of theft recovery tools developed by Absolute, which include capabilities such as keystroke loggers, web cameras, location tracking (Wi-Fi triangulation, GPS) and remote access tools. All tools are only employed post-theft with express and unambiguous customer authorization and consent and are used exclusively by Absolute’s trained professionals in order to protect privacy.
