ASUS P Series Notebooks Now Equipped with New Intel® Anti-Theft Technology

intel anti theifASUS today announced its plans to equip its notebooks with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology, in an effort to help customers address the growing theft of notebooks.

In the commercial world where businesses operate with the strictest level of confidentiality, and where notebooks belonging to highly mobile business professionals are likely to contain confidential company or personal information, the theft of vital information may be costly. ASUS addresses this concern with its new P Series notebooks, which are equipped with Intel® Anti-theft PC Protection Technology. This new technology provides users with the ability to send a “poison pill” remotely, rendering the notebook inoperable by comprehensively shutting it down. As such, the risk resulting from a stolen or lost notebook is eliminated. Once the notebook has been recovered, a local passphrase or recovery token can be used to reactivate the notebook.

The ASUS P30 and P80, with innovative built-in security capabilities based on Intel® Anti-Theft Technology, are available immediately.

“With the growth of laptop sales increasing, theft management has become an important requirement for our customers,” said George Thangadurai, director of Strategic Planning and general manager, Intel Anti-theft Services, Intel Mobile Platforms Group. “Our collaboration with ASUS will bring to customers new worldwide scalable hardware-based security solutions using Intel® Anti-Theft Technology that will deter theft.”
