Asus plans to equip its notebooks with Intel Anti-Theft Technology, in an effort to help customers address the growing theft of notebooks.
The company's new P Series of notebooks are equipped with Intel Anti-theft PC Protection Technology, which provides users with the ability to send a "poison pill" remotely, rendering the notebook inoperable by comprehensively shutting it down. Once the notebook has been recovered, a local passphrase or recovery token can be used to reactivate the notebook.
"With the incorporation of Intel Anti-Theft PC Protection technology in ASUS P30 and P80 notebooks, professionals can now conduct their businesses with greater assurance and without the fear of dire ramifications in the event of theft or loss," said Mr. Henry Yeh, General Manager of ASUS' Notebook Business Unit.
The ASUS P30 and P80 are available immediately.
