Absolute Software Corporation the
leading provider of firmware-based, patented Computrace Computer Theft
Recovery, Data Protection and Secure Asset Tracking announced that
Lenovo is now shipping its ThinkCentre(R) line of business desktops with
Computrace embedded support in the BIOS. With this expanded support for
Computrace, Lenovo customers can now activate Absolute Software’s services on
the complete range of ThinkPad(R) laptops, 3000 Series Notebook computers and
ThinkCentre desktops.

“Lenovo understands that unified security and management has become
critical across a customer’s entire computer population,” said John
Livingston, Chairman and CEO of Absolute Software. “By embedding support for
Computrace in its popular line of ThinkCentre desktops, Lenovo is giving its
business customers the ability to both manage and secure their entire computer
populations using a single tool.”

Beginning with a February 2005 agreement, Lenovo has embedded support for
Absolute Software’s computer tracking software product Computrace(R) in the
BIOS of its laptop products. More recently, Lenovo has embedded support for
the product across its entire mobile product line – including all new
ThinkPad and 3000 Series Notebook computers. Today’s announcement expands
Lenovo’s support for Computrace in mixed laptop/desktop computer populations
by supporting the product in its line of ThinkCentre desktops.

Support for the Computrace agent embedded in the BIOS(1) of computers is
shipped turned off and can be activated by purchasing a subscription to one of
Absolute Software’s Computer Theft Recovery, Data Protection and Secure Asset
Tracking(TM) solutions. Once activated, customers can log into an online
Customer Center to centrally manage up to 100% of their Internet-connected PC
assets from a single user interface. In the event that a computer is stolen or
goes missing, Absolute can help recover it or remotely wipe data(2) to ensure
that sensitive information does not fall into the wrong hands.
