Move that laptop from a secure area? Self destruct!

A British company has developed an intelligent security technology that can block access and destroy data if a laptop is moved from its designated space.

Backstopp, from technology company, Virtuity, constantly monitors the electronic “heartbeat” of a laptop to determine its location. If the laptop is moved from its allowed zone the software steps in to remove sensitive data.

Backstopp can use any wireless communication, such as Wi-Fi, to locate laptops. The PCs can also be tagged with RFID chips to monitor movement when switched off to make the safe zone even smaller. (link)
