Let Cortana do the heavy lifting
Windows 10 for your ThinkPad E580 includes Cortana, your own personal assistant. You'll never have to hunt for files or photos or meetings again!
Advance to chip level encryption
We know how important your data is. That’s why the ThinkPad E580 features a discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) 2.0 chip, which works in conjunction with Windows 10 Pro Bitlocker. Together they encrypt all your data, as well as your passwords.
More secure password protection
With the optional Touch fingerprint reader, you can quickly and securely login with ease. What’s more, the fingerprint reader thwarts biometric hacking with anti-spoofing technology—the fingerprint image is saved inside the chip so it’s not sent out for login authentication when you sign in.
