Phoenix FailSafe Demonstrations and Lectures
Phoenix FailSafe is a true embedded PC data protection and theft-loss solution, given that it is tightly integrated with Phoenix's firmware products which are at the foundation of more than 60% of mobile PCs in the world today. FailSafe location-based technology allows the owner to locate and recover lost or stolen laptops, remotely encrypt, retrieve or delete the data on the device or disable the unit to prevent potential misuse. Due to the fact that FailSafe is embedded into the core firmware layer, it is constantly available and functioning. FailSafe is able to offer a superior level of protection due to its tight integration with the hardware security mechanisms in a system.

Phoenix HyperSpace and HyperCore Demo
Phoenix HyperCore is an ultra-efficient embedded hypervisor which allows an independent Linux-based operating system called HyperSpace(TM) to run specialized core services side-by-side with Windows Vista. The HyperSpace platform provides a unique computing environment called ManageSpace that PC designers and security innovators can use to host remote management and security applications that are available before, during and after Windows boot up and shut down. Operating like self-contained appliances, these embedded applications such as anti-virus and secure browsing provide stronger protection than is currently available on PCs.
Enhanced by Intel(R) based-processors enabling virtualization technologies, Phoenix HyperSpace(TM) provides a secure foundation of 'embedded simplicity.' PC OEMs can now offer highly-efficient, instantly available applications that promise to deliver new levels of security, up-time, system reliability, remote management, and ease-of-use to PC users.
