Absolute Software Corporation (“Absolute”) (TSX: ABT), the provider of patented, firmware-based, Computer Theft Recovery, Data Protection and Secure Asset Tracking™ solutions, today announced that its Computrace®One enterprise solution has been awarded a coveted Secured by Design licence from the Association of Chief Police Officers Crime Prevention Initiatives’ (ACPO CPI).
ACPO CPI operates the Secured by Design scheme to provide a reliable benchmark for security products, with the SBD logo only displayed on items that have passed a stringent standards test conducted by a suitably accredited, independent, third party testing body. ACPO CPI General Manager, Alan McInnes said, “We are very pleased to have awarded SBD accreditation to Absolute Software’s ComputraceOne solution. This crime prevention and detection tool encompasses initiative and unique technology to ‘design out crime’ from computer theft.”
Absolute Software EMEA Limited Chief Financial Officer and Managing Director, Rob Chase said the Company is very excited to receive the SBD licence for ComputraceOne. “This award demonstrates our commitment to providing a highly effective solution for organisations to combat loss and theft of mobile computing devices, and to protect confidential data from falling into the wrong hands.”
Mr Chase continued, “Every day there are more and more high profile laptop thefts being reported through the media. Recently Marks and Spencer confirmed that a laptop containing salary details, addresses, dates of birth, national insurance and phone numbers of 26,000 M&S employees had been stolen.”
“Marks and Spencer now join the list of others who have experienced high profile thefts such as the NHS and Nationwide Building Society who were recently fined £980,000 as a result of just one stolen laptop.”
“Our ComputraceOne solution can help customers avoid such consequences by capturing the thief and physically recovering these stolen assets, or by remotely deleting confidential data from lost or stolen computers.”
Over the past ten years Absolute has proven its theft recovery capabilities on a worldwide level by reuniting thousands of people with their stolen laptops and deleting potentially compromised data from lost or stolen machines.
