McAfee has announced a collaboration with parent company Intel to develop anti-theft software for Ultrabook devices.
The software will use unique technologies based on Intel's anti-theft chips. The companies also said the solution will deliver capabilities including data wiping, device locking and location tracking.
George Thangadurai, general manager of the PC client services division at Intel, said: “To address the pervasive nature of such threats, Intel and McAfee are collaborating to deliver scalable and innovative anti-theft solutions, starting with Ultrabook, that will help to provide more peace of mind.”
Steve Petracca, senior vice president of consumer marketing at McAfee, said: “McAfee has a strong legacy of delivering security solutions to consumers through our partner channel, as well as an established partner eco-system.
“By making easy-to-use anti-theft software for Ultrabook systems available, our partners are able to leverage proven security deployment modules to protect consumers. This also allows our partners to differentiate themselves from a crowded field of competitors.”
