Phoenix cME is a standards-based set of enabling technologies and applications built into the foundation of PCs and other digital devices, residing within the system's firmware and the host protected area of the hard drive. These technologies and applications are always available and more secure due to being independent of the operating system, and because they are built into the architecture of the device.
Founded in 1979, Phoenix Technologies (NASDAQ: PTEC) helped launch the digital revolution when it created the industry's leading machine-independent BIOS software, which ships in more than 100 million new systems each year. Phoenix continues to leverage that core-level experience to develop many other vital solutions at multiple points in the foundation of PCs and other digital devices. Today, Phoenix solutions activate, secure, connect, and recover the world's best-known systems. These solutions operate from a Core Managed Environment (cME), where they're built in and protected from viruses, user errors, hackers, and corruption. Phoenix is headquartered in San Jose, Calif. USA (Silicon Valley), with offices in global business and technology centers. For more information about Phoenix Technologies, visit our website at http://www.phoenix.com/
