Absolute Software Offers Endpoint Security for Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 
Patented Absolute Persistence Technology Embedded in Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 
Available Through Authorized Surface Resellers in US and Canada Beginning Next 
VANCOUVER, July 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), 
the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management 
solutions for computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, today announced it 
will embed its persistence platform in Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 tablet. 
Under the terms of the agreement, Absolute persistence technology will be 
embedded in Surface Pro 3 tablets in the 29 geographies where Surface tablets 
are sold. The Surface Pro 3 offers the power and performance of a traditional 
laptop, including the ability to run Windows software, on a lightweight and 
versatile tablet form factor. With Absolute persistence technology embedded 
into the firmware - once the Absolute software agent is installed and 
activated - IT can secure corporate devices and the sensitive data they 
When Absolute Computrace® and/or Absolute Manage® are installed and 
activated on the Surface Pro 3, the software will persistently reinstall, even 
if the device is factory reset. IT administrators can remotely invoke endpoint 
security and management commands to protect data, support BYOD workflows, and 
easily manage each device regardless of user or location. 
With Absolute alerting capabilities, customers can respond preemptively if a 
device is deemed to be at risk. Most importantly, organizations can prove that 
IT compliance processes are properly implemented and enforced. 
"We are thrilled to work with Microsoft to offer customers persistent endpoint 
security and management capabilities on the Surface Pro 3," said Geoff Haydon, 
CEO at Absolute Software. "The Surface Pro 3, with Absolute persistence, 
provides IT with the means to support employee productivity while securing the 
device and the confidential data it may contain." 
Consumers that purchase the Surface Pro 3 can also choose these enhanced 
protection options. With firmware persistence, consumer users can leverage 
Absolute LoJack® to remotely lock, delete, and locate their device and will 
also have access to the services of the Absolute Investigations team.
