Absolute Software – Computrace

Computrace software provides a robust and multi-layered security solution that allows organizations to address issues of regulatory compliance, data protection, computer theft recovery, and asset tracking. Major computer manufacturers have embedded the Computrace agent in the BIOS or Firmware of the computer to prevent Computrace from being removed by unauthorized users. Many IT professionals use Computrace to:

  • Track & Recover Stolen Laptops
  • Delete Data Remotely to Protect Confidential Information
  • Detect Unauthorized Software of Missing Hardware
  • Ensure Regulatory Compliance
  • Create Predefined Alerts to Manage Appropriate Use Policies

Using any type of internet connection, Computrace works behind the scenes on your computer to silently and securely contact the Absolute Monitoring Center every 24 hours to report its location. If a Toughbook computer is reported missing or stolen, the machine is flagged to call in every 15 minutes. Even though these computers have Computrace embedded into them, you will have to pay a small price to activate the software within the computer. The starting price for Computrace is $125 for the 3 year subscription. This is a small price to pay to protect your investment. If data were to be stolen or lost, a lot of money could potentially be lost from that. Paying for Computrace can prevent that from happening.

Group Mobile’s lineup of computers that come with embedded Computrace include all Panasonic Toughbooks and the General Dynamics Itronix XR-1.
