  2. Once you activate your LoJack for Laptops subscription, the Agent starts contacting Absolute's Monitoring Center via the Internet at regular, frequent intervals.
  3. Should you request a Lock or Delete procedure, the Agent receives and executes these commands and next time it contacts the Monitoring Center. If your laptop is stolen, the Theft Recovery Team can use the Agent to obtain forensic data used to guide local law enforcement in recovering it.

Our Persistent Technology
