Panasonic's Data Protection Service allows organizations to track, locate and report the activities of any Toughbook computer, including those that are missing, stolen or that have been transferred to a user other than the one registered to the unit. Administrators can remotely remove data from lost, stolen or transferred units without the user's knowledge.
This helps maintain data privacy and regulatory compliance standards. Its value is in reducing an organization's data security risks and the potentially damaging problems security breaches can cause. With this service, administrators can easily delete data files from lost or stolen Toughbook® laptops, monitor the recovery status of these mobile devices and track unit information. This is accomplished through client-server architecture embedded in the Toughbook that uses encrypted communication with the monitoring servers. All functionality works seamlessly without compromising the organization's productivity.
This service provides data protection, deletion capabilities, asset tracking and theft recovery assistance in three distinct products produced by Absolute Software:
- Computrace Complete
- Computrace Plus
- Computrace Data Protection
Each is available in 3-, 4- or 5-year plans. All of the products allow the organization to remotely delete files from a user's Toughbook without the user's knowledge. The data removal process meets the United States Department of Defense (DOD) standard for data removal and is set up to ensure that data is never deleted without permission of the organization's administrator. Once the data is removed, it cannot be recovered.
