Absolute Software brings Intel Anti-Theft technology to consumers

By Julie King |

Business owners who purchase Computrace LoJack for Laptops will now be able to take advantage of Intel's Anti-Theft (AT) features, as Vancouver-based Absolute Software becomes the first vendor to bring this technology to consumers.

The Intel AT features include remote locking and messaging capabilities, expanding the capabilities of the LoJack software.

The LoJack software, which is sold as an annual subscription priced at $24.99 for a regular subscription and $34.99 for the premium edition, works by placing a tracing agent on a user's laptop. This agent, known as the Computrace Agent, then checks in with Absolute's monitoring centre according to a schedule set by the laptop owner, passing on location information each time it checks in.

The addition of Intel Anti-theft features enable the laptop owner to login to their LoJack account and trigger the automatic lock of the laptop. Premium users will also be able to remotely delete data on the laptop before it is locked.

The LoJack software can be installed on any laptop, a company representative noted. To take advantage of the new Intel AT features the user must have an Intel AT enabled computer.

Subscriptions can be purchased at You can learn more about Intel's anti-theft technology through this Intel white paper.
