LIGATT Security International announced today that their flag ship product LocatePC, the most downloaded computer tracking program on the Internet, is now available for Apple’s Macintosh computers.
LocateMac will enable a person to track their stolen computer anywhere in the world. It runs unobtrusively on a computer, without any icons or pop-ups. This invisible software is designed to work on all Apple computers and retails for $29.95 for a 1-year subscription.
LIGATT Security International creates and develops affordable products primarily for all business structures and the everyday consumer. Laptop security is an ongoing issue and LSI is dedicated to minimizing laptop and computer theft. The company has found that it is more important to an individual to be able to retrieve and protect sensitive data than for the actual retrieval of the personal computer.
"We have received more requests from our retailers for the Macintosh version of LocatePC," comments Tialer Maxwell, Director of Marketing for LocatePC and LocateMac. "We expect LocateMac to surpass sales of all our other products."
According to The New York Times, a new Intel study of laptop theft among businesses, the largest percentage of business laptops were lost when an employee was working out of the office, followed by when an employee was traveling. To add, the study has shown that about 40 percent of laptops were lost off-site, while another third were lost in transit or travel, like an airport, train station or in a taxi. Other laptop disappearances occurred in offices or without explanation.
LocateMac has all the features of LocatePC including:
- Geolocation - LocatePC/Mac uses the most efficient and successful way to retrieve your lost or stolen computer. Using the mobile tracker and apps for the iPad and iPhone, you do not have to depend on the law enforcement during the recovery process. Receive alerts each time your computer’s IP address changes.
