It was announced that the anti-theft protection will be brought by Lenovo‚Äôs computers, and Lenovo is one of the first companies to deal with that. How does this built-in protection work? It can automatically detect where the stolen or lost notebook is, and respond a thief. This detection can be rendered due to the individual company’s IT policy.

The detective strategy is like this. When an IT technician gets a report that a laptop is disappeared he at once renders the unit inoperable. Besides if a criminal turns on the device a remote engineer on the home base merely deletes the computer data and locks the entire system.

George Thangadurai, general manager of Intel’s Anti-Theft Program, says:

“The notebook lost in the airport or stolen from a car can be devastating and is a common nightmare in the back of every business traveller’s mind, the collaboration with Absolute and Lenovo is aimed at helping solve that problem.”

The two technologies even allows the specialists to remotely handle security and management jobs on a computer.
