Laptop Security with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology

Built-in security features help keep confidential assets secure

Businesses are exposed to significant risk when an employee loses a laptop. Intel® Anti-Theft Technology1 (Intel® AT) is hardware-based technology that can lock a lost or stolen laptop so that company confidential information is protected and inaccessible by unauthorized users.

Intel Anti-Theft Technology is available on all Ultrabook™ devices and on many Intel® Core™ vPro™ and Intel® Core™ processor–powered laptops.

Anti-theft technology from Intel

How it works

Intel AT works with other security solutions, such as data encryption, to provide a multi-layered security so that if one layer of security is breached, another layer of protection is readily available. Businesses can deploy and manage Intel AT using available software solutions and services. When a business deploys an anti-theft solution, a lost laptop can be disabled to help protect sensitive information stored on the device’s hard drive by either using local hardware timers or by using a web request from IT administrators.  And, if the laptop is recovered, it can quickly be reactivated to full functionality.

Protect Business Data with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology

There are multiple solutions available today from third parties that are enabled with Intel Anti-Theft Technology. These solutions feature flexible service delivery models to fit your enterprise IT requirements and can be managed within existing IT management workflows.

It’s not just a laptop, it’s your business. Lock it tight with Intel Anti-Theft Technology.
