Few things are worse than having your notebook lost or stolen. Things can be especially troublesome if you have sensitive personal or business data stored on the notebook The one thing you can do with a new feature from Lenovo is prevent unauthorized users from using your notebook.
Lenovo has announced a new feature called Lenovo Constant Secure Remote Disable that allows users to send a text message to WWAN enabled notebooks that will shut the machine down. All a user has to do is send a text message saying "lockdown now PC" or "PC shut off" to enable the feature. The notebook will lock down until a custom pass code is entered to unlock the system making it unusable.
"Remote Disable dramatically reduces the anxiety and waiting people often experience when they’ve been the victim of a lost or stolen notebook PC,” said Bob Galush, vice president, Software and Peripherals Marketing, Lenovo.” Through our work with Phoenix, we are able to reduce customers’ security risks and potential exposure of their confidential data when their ThinkPad notebook is lost or stolen. Combined with features like built-in biometric fingerprint readers, full hard drive encryption and embedded security chips, Lenovo ThinkPad notebooks offer the latest industry-leading PC security technologies."
