Newbury, September 2001: Eurotechnix Ltd the Newbury, Berkshire IT specialists, in conjunction with Absolute Software of Vancouver Canada have opened the UK monitoring centre for Computrace, the market leading utility for tracking and recovering stolen or lost portable and desktop computers.

Computrace is the ultimate computer watchdog. The moment a stolen computer is connected to a phone line or has access to the Internet, Computrace silently reports the PC’s location to the Eurotechnix Monitoring Centre.

The software is undetectable and tamper-resistant. Even if a thief suspected that a PC or portable may be loaded with Computrace, he or she won't be able to find and delete the program. Hidden on the hard drive, Computrace is protected against formatting and disk partitioning or even the reloading of the operating system.

If a Computrace-equipped system is stolen, the Agent tracks its location and notifies the Eurotechnix monitoring centre of its originating telephone number, and IP address. The Computrace Recovery Team works with local Police to recover the PC from its tracked location.

Eurotechnix have already installed over 1000 portables in the UK with the Computrace Tracking Agent. The system is already widely used throughout Canada and the USA by major Corporations, Finance intuitions and government agencies. The opening of the UK monitoring centre now provides the same level of cover here in the UK

Enhancing the Computrace functionality is PC Asset Tracking, which lets the Tracking Agent auto-discover additional data points such as Processor, installed memory, hard disk space and serial number from the PC and provides simple, web-based asset reporting tools to authorised users.

To compliment the Introduction of Computrace into the UK, Eurotechnix has negotiated exclusive reduced comprehensive insurance rates with a Lloyds insurance underwriter. The reduction in premium covers the 1st years monitoring cost.

Note to Editors.

Eurotechnix will be pleased to provide sample Computrace evaluation products to nominated reviewers and work with them to provide data for any trials or editorial.
