Since 2007, ActiveTrak Inc. has been reuniting lost or stolen laptops, mobile phones, and portable media devices with their rightful owners who installed the company's GadgetTrak© software. The software utilizes features on mobile devices such as cameras and Internet connectivity to apply multiple layers of security that protect sensitive data and locate missing devices. With a number of documented recoveries, and successes, the company has been developing an enterprise solution that provides corporations with a way to mass deploy the software across all the devices on their network, and new features for data protection. The platform also provides easy integration for vendors wishing to offer the technology to their own customers, either online, or at the point-of-sale.
"In our partnership with ActiveTrak we see a great opportunity to provide additional protection for our customers. Our insurance provides peace of mind if a handset is damaged, particularly for expensive phones, now with ActiveTrak we can also protect the data on the device as well, which is priceless," stated ProtectCell CEO Bryan Finnerty.
ActiveTrak Inc and ProtectCell will be at CTIA March 23-25 in Las Vegas, visit them at booth number 5755.
