VANCOUVER, April 19 â€“ Absolute Software (www.absolute.com), a provider of Computer Theft Recovery and Secure Asset Tracking solutions, and Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation, a leading notebook PC maker, have extended Absolute's BIOS-based security to Fujitsu's corporate notebooks. Fujitsu has begun providing embedded support for Absolute's ComputraceComplete Theft Recovery and Secure Asset Tracking software for three new products in its corporate notebook line.
On April 18, 2006, Fujitsu announced worldwide embedded BIOS support for Absolute's Computrace enabled solutions with its E8210 widescreen corporate notebook, LifeBook S7110 and LifeBook E8110 notebook models. BIOS-enabled versions of these products began shipping April 18, 2006, ensuring that Fujitsu's customers have access to the highest level of computer theft protection available on the market. With the technology support in place, Absolute and Fujitsu are now in the process of formalizing their reselling and marketing arrangements.
"Fujitsu's global footprint makes them an important partner to Absolute as we drive to expand our business both domestically and in international markets," said John Livingston, CEO of Absolute Software. "Fujitsu's focus on security made embedding Computrace in the BIOS an easy decision as it helps enterprise customers in three areas of security: regulatory compliance, data protection and theft recovery."
