Absolute's Computrace Included in a Major Computer Manufacturer's Customer Care Program



    
    One of the world's top computer manufacturers now offering Computrace-
    powered solutions for laptop tracking and theft recovery as part of its
    European customer care package
    

    VANCOUVER, June 30 /CNW/ - Absolute(R) Software Corporation (TSX: ABT),
the leading provider of firmware-based, patented, computer theft recovery,
data protection and secure IT asset management solutions announced today that
a large computer manufacturer's customer care offerings now include mobile
computer management and anti-theft solutions powered by Computrace(R).
    The Computrace-powered solution, which includes computer theft recovery,
remote data deletion and IT asset management capabilities, launched this month
as a standalone offering within the manufacturer's customer care offerings
designed for European small and medium businesses (SME), and is sold by the
manufacturer and its resellers across Western Europe.
    "The small and medium-sized business segment is a challenging market to
reach on a global basis," said William Pound, Vice-President, Global Corporate
Development at Absolute Software. "Incorporating Absolute's solutions into the
existing sales channels of major computer manufacturers allows customers to
purchase our products from their trusted source in the manner they are
accustomed to. This is a key strategy in our international expansion program."
    Computrace technology is embedded in the firmware of computers from the
world's leading manufacturers and it can be easily activated by the customer.(*)
Access to Computrace solutions is typically activated by customers when they
purchase a subscription with terms ranging from one to five years. Computrace
solutions allow IT professionals to track stolen computers, delete data
remotely to protect confidential information, detect unauthorized software or
missing hardware and help ensure regulatory compliance.
    If a computer is stolen, the Absolute Theft Recovery Team can use
information sent by the computer and forensically mine it using a variety of
procedures including key captures, registry scanning, file scanning,
geo-location, and other investigative techniques to determine who has the
computer and how it is being used. Absolute then works with local law
enforcement to help recover the computer. Embedded in the firmware of a
computer, the stealthy Computrace Agent is capable of surviving operating
system re-installations, as well as hard-drive reformats, replacements and
re-imaging.
