What good is software security when it’s stolen?Locked
Vista’s new security features – Linux more secure than Windows – blah, blah, blah. All that means nothing when your PC has been stolen. So, to divert away from some of the recent security issues a little (and to provide a little fresh air), who is doing what when it comes to physical security? You can read a thousand reviews of the latest AV and firewall software, but where are all the physical security product reviews?
Major companies can spend $$$ on physical protection, guards on the doors, walk-in safes for their servers and so on, but what is happening on the home user front? Some of us don’t have the greens to secure their systems but want to stop them being stolen. It would be good to see some new and novel ideas on how to keep your hardware safe.
For me, my gear is on the second floor in the building I live in with no easy means of climbing up. There’s three locked doors between it and the outside world, each made of very solid english oak and fitted with substantial locks (trying to kick them in only results in broken toes). Finally, the case is bolted to the floor.
