Toshiba Announces Lojack Offering

Toshiba UK today announces the extension of its security offering for business laptops with the introduction of LoJack for Laptops, the Absolute Software solution which provides users with reassurance in the event of theft or loss. With critical data, such as sensitive business information and passwords, the solution gives users the power to proactively secure and recover a missing or stolen laptop. LoJack for Laptops gives resellers the opportunity to provide an innovative mobile device security option for SMB and education sector customers.

Simple to install and manage, and ideal for single or groups of users without a managed IT infrastructure, the patented persistence technology is designed to be easily and deeply embedded within the mechanics of the device, making it extremely difficult for criminals to detect or remove. Once installed and activated, the owner can access its four powerful containment features:

•lock – remote device locking to prevent the device being used
•delete – remote wiping of stored data to prevent anyone accessing confidential information
•locate – confirm the physical whereabouts of the device
•recover – a dedicated theft management team who forensically mines the data then works with law enforcement to return the stolen laptop.

“With remote working on the rise, an unfortunate but inescapable consequence businesses face is an increased risk of theft,” says Jeff Willis, Director B2B Solutions Europe at Toshiba. “With this in mind, we are always striving to provide our partners with the latest solutions to protect and reassure customers. LoJack® for Laptops is a logical step for Toshiba’s mobile device security range, as it will allow resellers to present a single device solution, offering security and peace of mind to those customers who do not possess or have access to dedicated IT services; particularly SMBs and organisations within the education sector.”

“The solution can be positioned as the ideal way to protect devices that are left in the hands of pupils who are less likely to take close care of their possessions, or employees who want to use mobile devices but are concerned about losing a key business tool,” explains Willis.

The embedded software, Absolute Computrace, regularly makes contact with Absolute’s Monitoring Centre, meaning that once the user requests a lock or deletion, the command is executed the moment the Agent next connects with the Monitoring Centre.

Typical purchase price (TPP) is:
•£26.00 (1 year subscription)
•£57.00 (3 year subscription)
