Latest technology advances make GadgetTrak the only cross-platform, comprehensive tracking and recovery software available for laptops, smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices
LAS VEGAS and PORTLAND, Ore. – January 5, 2010 – ActiveTrak Inc. (www.activetrak.com), producer of loss and theft recovery software for mobile devices, today announced the availability of GadgetTrak® Mobile Security 3, the most advanced device and data protection service available for smartphones and media tablets.
A significant update to its mobile security offerings, GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 leverages ActiveTrak’s award-winning tracking technology. GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 adds important new security features, including remote backup and data wipe, to its acclaimed tracking technology for lost or stolen smartphones and tablets. GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 is tamper proof, preventing thieves from modifying the application settings or avoiding being tracked by simply removing the SIM card.
“GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 is a major advance in smartphone protection,” said Ken Westin, ActiveTrak CEO. “As smartphones become more powerful and more capable, people trust the device with more of their day-to-day business and personal activities, such as mobile banking and mobile commerce in addition to their email, calendar and contacts. Losing a smartphone can cause a devastating disruption to a person’s life and risk identity theft and other problems. The ability to track a smartphone and secure its data is now even more critical than protecting your wallet.”
GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3, now in a public beta, is available for download at http://www.gadgettrak.com/products/mobile. During the public beta, anyone can try GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 for free for one month.
Key features of GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 include:
- Optimized for smartphones and tablets: GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 is designed to leverage the native capabilities present on smartphones and media tablets to offer the best possible protection for the widest range of mobile devices
- Remotely wipe the device: Remotely wipe personal data stored on your device such as photos, email, contacts and SMS messages
- Secure data backup: Encrypt photos and contacts using government grade encryption (AES 256) and back them up in a secure location
- Advanced Positioning: Locate your device using a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi positioning and cell tower positioning, even if the device is indoors
- Tamper proof: Once activated, the software settings cannot be modified on the device and notifies the device owner if the SIM card changes
- Alarm: Trigger the device to emit a loud siren that can be a theft deterrent or help find a missing phone even if it is set to silent mode
“The world is anticipating the explosion of new media tablets and slates that will be unveiled at CES,” adds Westin. “2011 is going to be the year when tablet devices become the technology accessory everyone will want, including thieves. The oncoming popularity of tablets is why ActiveTrak engineered GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 to protect tablets as effectively as we protect smartphones and laptops.”
GadgetTrak is the only cross-platform mobile protection software available, allowing users to use a single account to manage Mac and Windows laptops, Apple, Android, and BlackBerry smartphones, plus a wide array of mobile devices such as iPods, iPads and other media tablets. Last month the company made its second generation GadgetTrak for iOS software available in the iTunes app store. For a limited time anyone can download a perpetual license for use on their iPhone or iPad tablet for only 99 cents. This newest version of GadgetTrak for iOS keeps running in the background and checking the device’s location every ten minutes. Even if the app is quit manually, GadgetTrak will still register that a major location change has occurred.
ActiveTrak will be demonstrating GadgetTrak for laptops, smartphones and tablets at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 6 to 9. Media can visit GadgetTrak at Showstoppers on January 6, or on the CES show floor in the New Product Marketplace in booth 1035N and also in booth 4435.
