Absolute® Software Corporation, the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management solutions for computers, laptops, tablets and smartphone devices commends the proactive work of the State of New York’s Attorney General’s Office and the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office in convening the “Smartphone Summit” today in New York City.

According to the Federal Communications Commission, in New York City alone 40 percent of all robberies involve smartphones and other cell phones.*

"New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón should be applauded for their foresight and efforts today in addressing the alarming increase in mobile phone theft across America,” said John Livingston, CEO at Absolute Software. “The public needs to be protected and a proactive response is required to deter these thefts and the risk to public safety they represent. Unfortunately a growing number of these theft incidents involve violence as the victim may be held up at gun or knife point or physically assaulted. The solution already exists and Absolute is actively speaking with the AG and DA’s offices and working with law enforcement and partners such as Samsung to mitigate the risk associated with mobile device theft and the associated crimes. With Absolute’s unique stolen smartphone recovery service, those responsible for theft can be identified and held accountable and there is no better deterrence than that.”

"We as a nation need to stop the current crime epidemic of smartphone theft,” stated Sean Burke, President at School Safety Advocacy Council and 25-year Law Enforcement Commander. “The recent partnership of Absolute Software and Samsung is a major step in that direction and will help protect our students.”

Absolute Software is the only company to offer persistence, a patented technology embedded into the firmware of computer, tablet and smartphone devices by the manufacturer. Once activated by the customer, it provides a trusted connection to the device even if it is wiped or factory reset. This allows only the legitimate owner a persistent connection to their device to be able to both recover their private property and maintain their data privacy.
