Computer tracing software tracks stolen laptops globally

Absolute Software : 25 July, 2008  (New Product)
The rise in high profile laptop losses prompts Absolute Software to declare that existing data protection methods aren't enough and that tracking stolen devices adds additional protection and greater possibility of recovery
Laptops are easily mislaid, as proved by the high profile cases reported in the media over the last few days. Most of these laptops had security precautions such as passwords and encryption in place. The fact is that this level of security is not enough.

It is the data on a laptop that is valuable, and so therefore, being able to keep this safe and out of the wrong hands is of the utmost importance.

William Pound, VP International Operations, Absolute Software: 'The lack of security precautions taken to secure important data is shocking.

'There needs to be accountability and processes in place to ensure that data taken from a company - whether it is on a laptop, PDA or USB stick - is secured in such a way that there is no risk of it getting into the wrong hands.

Encryption isn't enough; it is a blend of security that will keep data safe. It is all encompassing, from allowing only authorised staff to access the files on the network, to password protection, to encryption, to tracking and recovery software.'

Absolute Software, the leading provider of patented computer theft recovery, data protection and Secure Asset Tracking solution, ComputraceOne, can delete data and confidential files on stolen laptops remotely and recovers thousands of missing devices across the globe annually by working with the local police. Its customers include the Swiss Football Association, De Beers, and numerous financial institutions and government departments.

The company has tracked and recovered laptops to locations including Argentina, India and Saudi Arabia. It also has remotely deleted hundreds of thousands of documents contained on stolen computers, sparing companies the hefty fines that unprotected organisations have incurred.
