Securing Your Business with Acer TravelMate Laptops

edited April 3 in Business

With cybercrime being predicted to cost the world over 9 trillion USD in 2024, it’s never been a better time to step back and consider your business’s cybersecurity situation. With the growing prevalence of data breaches and cyber threats, Acer is taking steps to fortify the TravelMate series with a host of state-of-the-art security features, ready to protect your business and its data.

Hardware-Based Security

While software solutions play a crucial role in protecting against digital threats, they are often vulnerable to sophisticated attacks and can be compromised by malware or other malicious software. Enter hardware-based security features - a cornerstone of modern cybersecurity. Unlike software, hardware-based security features are built directly into the physical components of a device, making them inherently more resistant to being tampered with or becoming compromised. With hardware-level encryption, secure boot processes, and trusted execution environments, businesses can establish a robust foundation for protecting their sensitive data and mitigating the risks posed by cyber threats.

  • Windows Secured-Core PC

This certification signifies adherence to Microsoft's highest security standards for Windows devices. Acer TravelMate laptops benefit from advanced security measures such as hardware-based root of trust, virtualization-based security, and secure firmware update processes. By leveraging these capabilities, businesses can establish a resilient defense against modern threats, ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of their sensitive data.

  • Intel vPro® 

Acer TravelMate laptops support Intel vPro®, offering a comprehensive suite of hardware-based security features. Intel® Hardware Shield, integrated into Intel vPro®, provides enhanced protection against firmware attacks and malware, while remote management capabilities enable businesses to maintain visibility and control over their devices. With Intel vPro®, Acer TravelMate laptops empower businesses to stay ahead of evolving security threats and cyber-attacks.

By harnessing the power of these hardware security features, Acer TravelMate laptops provide businesses with a secure computing environment, enabling them to navigate the dangers and complexities of the modern digital landscape with confidence and peace of mind.

Software-Based Security

In addition to hardware-based security features, software-based security plays a vital role in protecting businesses against digital threats. While hardware security provides a solid foundation for defending against attacks at the device level, software security features add an extra layer of protection by addressing vulnerabilities in the operating system and applications.

Acer TravelMate laptops are equipped with a range of software-based security features designed to enhance data protection and safeguard against cyber threats. These features include:

  • Windows 11 Pro

Windows 11 Pro is the latest version of Windows from Microsoft, designed to offer advanced security and capabilities by default for businesses. With built-in security features such as Windows Hello for secure biometric authentication and BitLocker Drive Encryption for protecting data at rest, Windows 11 Pro offers robust protection against unauthorized access and data breaches. With its secure and reliable foundation, Windows 11 Pro empowers businesses to stay protected and productive.

  • Acer User Sensing Technology

The innovative Acer User Sensing technology is capable of determining the presence of a user in front of the screen. By intelligently detecting user activity, Acer TravelMate laptops can automatically lock the screen when the user is not detected, enhancing security and protecting sensitive data from prying eyes. This seamless integration of software into hardware ensures businesses can maintain control over their data, even in the most dynamic work environments.

  • Acer ProShield Plus

Acer ProShield Plus Software provides a comprehensive suite of security tools for managing and securing Acer TravelMate laptops. This includes being able to encrypt drives to protect sensitive data, BIOS-level security to prevent tampering with system firmware, and secure biometric authentication for verifying user identities. With Acer ProShield Plus Software, businesses can implement robust security policies and safeguard their data while minimizing the risk of security breaches.

With these software-based security features installed, Acer’s TravelMate series ensures businesses that users can work with confidence, knowing that their data is protected against emerging cyber threats.

Privacy Enhancements

User privacy is important, and businesses need to prioritize the protection of sensitive information. As remote and hybrid work becomes increasingly prevalent and video conferencing becomes the norm, Acer recognizes the importance of certain privacy enhancements to ensure user confidentiality and address these concerns in the very design of the Acer TravelMate series. These features include:

  • Privacy Panel

Acer TravelMate laptops feature a built-in privacy panel that allows users to adjust the visibility of their screen to prevent unauthorized viewing. By simply turning on the privacy panel function, users can limit the viewing angle of their display, ensuring that sensitive information remains confidential, even in crowded or public spaces.

  • Camera Shutter

To address concerns about unauthorized access to the built-in webcam, Acer TravelMate laptops are equipped with a camera shutter. This physical shutter allows users to easily cover the webcam when not in use, providing peace of mind and protection against potential privacy breaches. With the camera shutter feature, users can control when their webcam is active, minimizing the risk of unauthorized surveillance or recording.

These privacy enhancements on Acer TravelMate laptops give users the peace of mind they need, helping to protect their privacy at every turn.


In today's digital landscape, where cyber threats are prevalent and data breaches pose significant risks to businesses, the importance of robust security features in business laptops cannot be overstated. Acer TravelMate laptops offer a comprehensive suite of security solutions spanning hardware, software, and privacy enhancements, empowering businesses to protect their sensitive data and maintain a secure computing environment.

By integrating advanced security features directly into the TravelMate series, Acer ensures that businesses can work with confidence, knowing that their data is protected against emerging cyber threats. As businesses continue to navigate the complexities of enabling the modern workplace, investing in secure and reliable solutions like Acer TravelMate laptops is essential for safeguarding sensitive information, maintaining user privacy, and mitigating the risks posed by cyber-attacks.
