Microsoft is preparing to launch the new Surface Pro 4, a tablet aimed to replace the laptop, and the new Surface Book, an ultra-thin laptop. Both devices will be released on October 26th in North America, with much hype about the benefits of the laptop-tablet hybrid of the Surface Pro 4 and its benefit as a business device. In anticipation of these new releases, Absolute announced support for both the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book.
Persistence technology by Absolute will be embedded into the firmware of these devices at the factory. Once activated, Absolute Data & Device Security (DDS) will deliver a reliable two-way connection with all endpoints, regardless of user or location, enabling IT to maintain control of these devices and the data they contain.
“Since the launch of the Surface device line, we have worked closely with Microsoft to provide our shared customers with an additional layer of security, allowing them to manage and respond to the data risks that are inherent with a mobile workforce,” said Geoff Haydon, chief executive officer, Absolute. “Our work with Microsoft is ongoing and will ensure our customers continue to benefit from the new features and increased productivity Surface devices provide, without compromising their security environments.”
Absolute is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, currently embedding Persistence technology in a number of Microsoft devices. We’ve built strong relationships with manufacturers around the world so that today, most devices roll off the assembly line with Persistence technology from Absolute already embedded in the firmware of the machine.
