Absolute® Software Corporation, the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management solutions for computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, today announced a partnership with Positivo Informática S.A. (Positivo), Latin America’s largest computer manufacturer. Under the terms of the agreement, Absolute persistence technology which can endure operating system wipes, hard drive reformats as well as hard drive replacements will be embedded into the firmware of Positivo devices.
With Absolute persistence technology embedded into Positivo devices at the factory, customers will benefit from a persistent connection to each device regardless of user or location. This allows customers to reliably monitor and secure devices on or off the corporate network so they can take proactive steps in mitigating the potential risk of a data breach. And in the event a computer is stolen, the Absolute Investigations team will work closely with local law enforcement to assist in the investigation and recovery of the device. The Investigations team has recovered more than 30,000 devices from over 108 countries.
“Positivo is one the world’s largest computer manufacturers and their presence in Latin America is well recognized,” said Geoff Haydon, CEO at Absolute Software. “This partnership gives us the opportunity to bring our technology and comprehensive security solutions to a priority market, working with a respected manufacturer to grow our presence in this strategic region.”
