    About Absolute's Solutions

    The Computrace(R) software agent that powers Absolute Software's
solutions is embedded in the firmware of computers from the world's leading
computer manufacturers right at the factory.(1) It can be activated by
customers when they purchase a subscription with terms ranging from one to
four years. The agent regularly contacts the Absolute Monitoring Center -
sending location and IT asset management information to the Absolute Customer
Center portal.
    When a computer equipped with Computrace is reported stolen, Computrace
sends a silent signal over the Internet to the Absolute Monitoring Center. It
then allows the Absolute Theft Recovery Team to forensically mine the computer
using a variety of procedures including key captures, registry scanning, file
scanning, geolocation, 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
