The latest enterprise-class notebook from Acer is a virtual fortress, the company says. The TravelMate 6460 offers enhanced security features based around the Trusted Platform Module (TPM).
Acer’s Lindsay Tobin says “TPM technology is far stronger than a software-only solution for protecting data integrity, and it enhances user authentication.
“TPM offers facilities for secure generation of cryptographic keys, the ability to limit the use of keys (to signing/verification/encryption/decryption), as well as a hardware Random Number Generator. Acer’s eData Security software application supports TPM 1.2 and allows for file encryption and the creation of a Personal Secure Disk, allowing organisations to take advantage of TPM quickly and easily.”
In addition to the security features, the TravelMate 6460 is powered by Intel Core 2 Duo processor. It features dual-channel DDR2 memory and the S-ATA 5400RPM Hard Drive is protected with Acer Disk Anti-Shock Protection technology. Anti Theft technology is also in place to warn users when the system is being moved.
In terms of graphics, the notebook has a 15.4 inch display and comes with ATI Mobility Radeon X1300, including up to 512MB of HyperMemory.
