Absolute Software has announced the release of a Mac version of
Computrace LoJack for Laptops, a new security tracking software application. It costs $49.99 for one year of service.
Developed to help Mac users locate and recover their computers if they’re stolen, the software silently contacts Absolute’s own Monitoring Center when the computer connects to the Internet. The software provides an IP address and other networking information to help Absolute pinpoint the device’s physical location.
Absolute guarantees its work — if your computer isn’t located within 30 days, the company will refund the purchase price — of the software, that is.
Computrace loJack for Laptops requires Mac OS X v10.3 or later and is a Universal binary — it runs natively on PowerPC and Intel-based Macs.
