Each year, an estimated two million laptops are stolen, and 97 percent of those are never recovered. In addition, one in 10 people have lost a laptop, Smartphone, or USB drive that contains corporate information. In almost every case, these stolen hardware assets contain sensitive, valuable data that is proprietary or confidential. These statistics represent a serious financial risk to the enterprise in lost physical assets (hardware) and electronic assets (data and intellectual property). Enterprises need a reliable way to deter laptop theft, and if theft does occur, disable access to or destroy the previously encrypted stolen data even though the hardware is out of reach.
