Missoula, MT, March 26, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- One in ten laptops is stolen in its lifetime. Over 800,000 laptops are lost or stolen in US airports each year. NsideTrack, an advanced laptop tracking and data security application, not only tracks the location of a stolen laptop, it also allows the owner to access the stolen laptop remotely to encrypt or delete sensitive files. Now, users can even retrieve important files before deleting them from the stolen laptop.
Several laptop location applications identify a laptop’s location. However, NsideTrack brings laptop security to a new level by giving the laptop owner remote access to the files on the laptop.
“NsideTrack pushes personal and corporate laptop security to a new, affordable level,” notes NsideTrack co-founder and chief engineer, Steve Guerreri. “By providing remote access to the stolen laptop, NsideTrack recognizes that the data on a laptop is an important part of stolen laptop recovery.”
Northside Software, developers of NsideTrack Laptop Tracking Software, have partnered with Skyhook Wireless to provide laptop owners with detailed laptop tracking. Skyhook Wireless drives NsideTrack’s location tracker with its XPS Hybrid Positioning System.
NsideTrack uses Skyhook’s XPS technology to provide detailed location reports, including a digital map, of the laptop’s location. In addition, NsideTrack takes webcam pictures of the laptop thief and screen shots of the thief’s activity. Local police state that NsideTrack’s location reports contain sufficient data to obtain a search warrant.
