Notebooks are easy to steal. Caveo Technology LLC, of Cambridge, Mass., has released a PC Card-based security solution for laptop computers called Caveo Anti-Theft.
The product, a Type 2 PCMCIA card, deters laptop theft by detecting motion and issuing audible warning sounds, once armed.
If the computer is moved beyond a distance specified by the owner, the anti-theft system sounds an alarm and shuts down the computer, preventing access to the operating system.
Caveo Anti-Theft is also a data protection system, boasting an encryption option to protect confidential information and providing secure storage off the hard drive.
Caveo Anti-Theft includes Analog Devices Inc.s ADXL202 micro- machined motion sensor.
It is available now, priced at $99 per card.
