Last year, Croma had teamed up with Intel to launch an anti-theft service for laptops in India. The software essentially would be built into the laptop’s hardware. Once set up within, Infiniti adds that the software will plainly lock down the laptop if the user ends up misplacing it. Additionally, the software, it is learnt, would also create a secure data vault service on activation. A secure data vault, claims Infiniti, would encrypt private files of the user and store them.

The Anti-Theft service works on the premise of an intelligent hardware, which locks down a stolen laptop. Interestingly, the announcement states that the software will work on a stolen laptop, even if the thief ends up reimaging the hard drive, installing a new one, changing the boot order or staying away from connecting to any network. The aforementioned secure data vault created on the user’s hard drive would basically create a secure area for all the sensitive information the user has on his/her laptop. During a lock-down, this secure vault gets locked too and with it access to the secure data in the vault gets locked. This information, during a lock-down cannot be accessed even if someone attaches the hard drive into some other laptop, claims Infiniti Retail.
