Absolute Software Partners With Brazilian OEM Positivo Informática

Absolute Software, which offers a persistent endpoint security and management module that can be embedded in the firmware of computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, announced a partnership with Positivo Informática S.A. (Positivo), Latin America’s largest computer manufacturer.

Under the deal, 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.

Absolute persistence technology is built into the BIOS or firmware of a device during the manufacturing process. Once activated, customers who purchase these devices benefit from an extra level of security.

Customers can monitor and secure devices on or off the corporate network.  If 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.”
