Absolute Acquires FailSafe & Freeze

By: Absolute Team | 4/20/2010

Last week Absolute announced that we have acquired the FailSafe and Freeze anti-theft technology assets from Phoenix Technologies. These purchases will enable us to make our asset management and security offerings even more comprehensive for businesses and consumers.

FailSafe is a theft deterrence product that can protect, track, and manage laptops and their files if the laptop is lost or stolen. You can also lock and unlock an XP- or Vista-based laptop, letting you secure the laptop when you walk away.

Freeze is a Bluetooth-enabled product that locks a laptop when a user steps outside the "zone of safety."

Certain components of these technologies will be integrated into our products. We are very excited to be expanding our anti-theft offerings! Learn more about this news here.
