Protect laptops and data with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology brief

Intel® Anti-Theft Technology can now lock and unlock your lost or stolen laptops.
Laptops with the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT) provide intelligent protection of lost or stolen assets. Businesses can now prove security and privacy regulatory compliance even after a laptop goes missing, and can minimize legal or financial exposure, as well as the risk of a data breach.

Intel® AT’s flexible policy engine lets you specify the detection mechanism that activates theft mode, the thresholds for timer intervals, and the action(s) to take. Because the technology is built into laptop hardware, Intel® AT provides local, tamper-resistant, policy-based protection that works even if the OS is reimaged, the boot order is changed, a new hard drive is installed, or the laptop is disconnected from the network. When the laptop is recovered, you can reactivate it quickly and easily using your choice of methods: password created on provisioning or one-time code generated by IT. Intel AT is activated through service subscription from Intel AT enabled software and service providers. Intel® AT is available on most laptops with 3rd gen Intel® Core™ processor, 2nd gen and 3rd gen Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ and Core™ i7 vPro™ processors, and select previous-generation processors.
