IBM and Toshiba Corporation announced that Toshiba’s new line of enterprise laptop PCs will be integrated with IBM software, providing energy management and advanced endpoint security protection. Toshiba plans to sell the new lines of enterprise PCs and its integrated solution globally in mid-2012.
With the growing use of laptops by organizations, there are several important factors to consider, including today’s 24/7 work environment that requires many users to keep laptops running around the clock—not always in power-saving modes. Stolen laptops are also one of the biggest causes of data breaches to organizations in 2011. This directly relates to laptops that contain confidential data requiring higher security measures to protect them if stolen or misplaced. Multiply these behaviors across all employees in an organization, and the security risks, energy costs and environmental impacts rise.
To address this, Toshiba and IBM jointly developed a better way to manage energy use and secure data in laptops. Toshiba’s new line of enterprise laptop PCs will combine IBM software based on its Tivoli Endpoint Manager and Toshiba’s enhanced BIOS feature to allow IT managers to apply company’s specific policies for energy controls and security across PCs within an organization.
