How Absolute Persistence Technology Works

  • Through our partnership with computer manufacturers, the Absolute persistence module is embedded into the firmware of computer, tablet, and smartphone devices at the factory.
  • Once the Computrace agent is installed and activated our customers enjoy a level of persistence that is virtually tamper-proof, providing them with a trusted lifeline to each device in their deployment.
  • The Absolute persistence module is built to detect when the Computrace and/or Absolute Manage software agents have been removed, ensuring they are automatically reinstalled, even if the firmware is flashed, the device is re-imaged, the hard drive is replaced, or if a tablet or smartphone is wiped clean to factory settings.
  • 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. View a list of devices that support Absolute persistence.
