Your business reinforced
Extreme reliability - tested and proven to exceed the demanding US MIL-STD 810G
Business and organizational users demand greater reliability, so ASUSPRO BU series notebooks are strictly quality-tested to much higher industry standards that even exceed the demanding MIL-STD 810G military standard . They prove very durable in drop tests, hinge cycle tests, and panel pressure testing. They also ship with an anti-shock hard drive that includes a triple protection mechanism to ensure data is always safe.
Enhanced drop testing
More than double the drop height of standard notebooks
Stronger hinge test
Twice higher standards than mainstream notebooks
Enhanced pressure testing
Up to 20% higher endurance compared to normal notebooks
Occasional beverage accidents are no longer a problem
Durable reinforced LCD carbon construction
The notebook’s LCD cover employs durable reinforced carbon construction that is several times sturdier than conventional plastics. This gives the notebook 20% higher panel pressure resistance compared to standard notebooks, offering better damage protection while remaining light.
Reinforced with special magnesium-aluminum alloy brackets
ASUSPRO BU series notebooks use a special design that adds tough brackets to the underside of the case for extra strength and to protect the notebook in the event of shocks or drops.
Anti-shock hard drive – triple protection keeps data safe from damage
Stringent 3-axial/6-angular shock and vibration test
As a point of assurance to users, ASUSPRO BU series hard drives are subjected to 3-axial/6-angular shock and vibration trials in accordance with industry-standard surrogate testing.
Shock-resistant hard drives
Damage-absorbing sponge cushions designed as additional shields to protect data against shocks or drops experienced by the notebook during transportation.
Motion sensor protection mechanism
G-sensor hardware and hard drive protection software pre-empt imminent impacts as an additional line of defense in keeping data safe and secure. They use a 3D digital accelerometer with three levels of sensitivity: off, normal, and high. The latter is activated by default, and impact detection remains on at all times.
Tough-metal four-corner notebook structural protection
Shock-absorbing hard drive cushions reduce potential damage
Impact-detecting hard drive G-sensor pre-empts drop incidents
Your business: more secure and manageable
New generation Intel® Core™ processors with vPro™ technology and Intel® privacy protection features help IT managers implement added security alongside intelligent performance
Performance and protection are top priorities for enterprise IT departments, and so the ASUS BU series incorporates generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors. These help IT departments protect their business PCs, automate troubleshooting, expedite repair and maintenance tasks, and reduce desk-side and onsite visits. IT departments tap lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and higher operational efficiency. Intel® Identity Protection Technology (Intel® IPT) adds a layer of hardware-based security, helping prevent unauthorized access to your important business accounts. It is widely regarded by security experts as a more effective approach than software-only authentication.
Intel® Small Business Advantage
(Intel® SBA) helps small businesses efficiently manage their PCs in one simple package
The ASUSPRO BU series features Intel® Small Business Advantage, a new computing platform that consists of hardware, software, and firmware to provide unique security and productivity capabilities. It has been specially designed for small businesses that do not have a managed PC environment, it simplifies your IT allowing you to focus on your business and not on your PC . Intel® SBA includes six applications to help organize security and productivity: Software Monitor, Data Backup and Restore, USB Blocker, PC Health Center, Energy Saver, and Wireless Display.
Embedded TPM security chip: valuable data protected on a deep hardware level
Professionals can rest assured that their valuable data is protected with Trusted Platform Module security hardware integrated on the board to hold computer-generated encryption keys. Its hardware-based design helps repel attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and keys to sensitive data. TPM allows notebooks to run applications more securely, and makes transactions and communications more trustworthy.
Improved security with fingerprint scanning
Notebooks incorporating fingerprint scanning take data access authorization and protection to a higher level with a personal touch. RF electronic scanner imaging reads fingerprint patterns, using sensors that are less affected by skin surface conditions, including dry, worn, calloused, dirty or oily skin, which may impair the ability of other sensor technologies to accurately detect fingerprints.
Keep data safe, plus trace and locate stolen notebooks with Intel® Anti-Theft Technology and Computrace® LoJack® for Laptops
The ASUSPRO BU series utilizes Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT) to help disable access to the operating system in the event that your notebook is ever lost or stolen, keeping it safe and secure. Notebooks are also bundled with Computrace® LoJack® for Laptops by Absolute® Software, giving you the power to remotely locate them if missing. You can also remotely lock and delete data before it falls into the wrong hands. LoJack® for Laptops ‘s dedicated theft recovery team works with local police to track down lost or stolen notebooks and bring them back to you.
