Absolute Extends Benefits of Persistence Technology to AMD Chips

By: Arieanna Schweber | 8/25/2015

Absolute recently announced an agreement with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to incorporate our Persistence technology into AMD chip designs.

Absolute’s patented Persistence technology is embedded into the core of devices at the factory. Once activated, Persistence technology provides a reliable two-way connection so IT can confidently manage mobility, investigate potential threats, and take action if a security incident occurs. Persistence technology will now be embedded directly into AMD x86 APU technologies, providing an enhanced security offering to enterprises with AMD processors.

"In the interest of improving the privacy and security of our customers, we have been steadfast in our commitment to evolve security offerings through our technology," said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president, Alliances, AMD. "We are excited to work with Absolute to leverage its unique Persistence technology by integrating this security functionality into AMD processors."

AMD is a long-tenured leader in the semiconductor industry and in meeting today’s IT needs in organizations. By working together, exploring new ways to advance Persistence technology, we aim to deliver a higher level of data and device security to both AMD and Absolute customers.
