Asset tracking

Asset tracking features incorporated into the computer provide asset tracking data that can be
managed using HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM), HP CMS, or other systems-management
Seamless, automatic integration between asset tracking features and these products enables you to
choose the management tool that is best suited to the environment and to leverage investments in
existing tools.
HP also offers several solutions for controlling access to valuable components and information:
HP ProtectTools Embedded Security prevents unauthorized access to data, checks system integrity,
and authenticates third-party users attempting system access.
Security features such as ProtectTools and the Side access panel sensor (Smart Cover Sensor) help
prevent unauthorized access to the data and to the internal components of the computer.
By disabling parallel, serial, or USB ports, or by disabling removable-media boot capability, you
can protect valuable data assets.
Memory Change and Side access panel sensor (Smart Cover Sensor) alerts can be forwarded to
system management applications to deliver proactive notification of tampering with a computer's
internal components.
ProtectTools, the Side access panel sensor (Smart Cover Sensor), and the Side access panel solenoid
lock (Hood Lock) are available as options on select systems.
Use the following utilities to manage security settings on the HP computer:
Locally, using the Computer Setup (F10) Utility
Remotely, using the HP CMS or System SSM, which enables the secure, consistent deployment and
control of security settings from a simple command line utility
