Data loss, missing CDs, missing laptops and the HMRC Monday 26 November 2007 PDF Print Absolute Software (www.absolute.com) secures mobility around the world. We are installed and helping secure the data on over two million laptops globally for savvy businesses and individuals. In addition to securely tracking those assets and the data we contain, we also recover more than 50 per week using a team of specialists in the US and the UK. The need is clearly there as the HMRC example amply demonstrates. Mr William Pound, Absolute Software explains: "No company can afford to lose data. The latest loss from HM Revenue and Customs department could have been prevented, however, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and simply highlights an ongoing issue. Data is going missing consistently while being kept out of the public eye. In a world where we are increasingly reliant on mobility tools, we need to be ever more vigilant of the data they contain. It isn't just about sending unencrypted discs through the mail. Whether through simply forgetting your laptop in a coffee shop, or actually being targeted for theft, there are steps to be taken and tools to be used that can minimise the potentially grave consequences of your data becoming compromised and your privacy being invaded. And, its more common than you think. I understand just how serious data compromise is, and how common. A laptop is reported stolen every 53 seconds. Simply, enhanced security strategies are imperative in this data age. It is perfectly possible to prevent information from getting into the wrong hands. Remote deletion of data is possible when the information is stored on a laptop, and would give everyone concerned peace of mind."
