Research Triangle Park, N.C. — Lenovo intends to include Intel’s Anti-Theft Technology in its next generation of ThinkPad Notebooks, the manufacturer reported today.

“With growth of notebook sales skyrocketing in the last decade, mobile data security and theft management have become important requirements for our customers,” said Mooly Eden, VP and general manager of Intel’s mobile platforms group. “We are excited to collaborate with Lenovo to bring to market new hardware-based security solutions using Intel Anti-Theft Technology that are scalable worldwide and will protect PC data and deter theft.”

The notebooks, scheduled for release later this year, will feature built-in security capabilities based on Intel’s Anti-Theft Technology, which allows customers to remotely disable access to end-user data or disable the PC if its is stolen or lost.
