Absolute Software today announced the release of the Mac version of Computrace LoJack for Laptops, a laptop security tracking solution that locates and recovers lost or stolen computers. The new Mac version can be purchased directly through Apple retail stores, major retailers throughout North America and directly from Absolute Software.
In the event of computer theft or loss, Computrace LoJack for Laptops silently contacts Absolute’s Monitoring Center when the computer connects to the Internet. The embedded software provides the stolen computer’s IP address and other networking information to Absolute’s Theft Recovery Team which works with local law enforcement to identify its physical location and recover the computer. If a stolen laptop is not recovered within 30 days, Absolute Software will refund the purchase of Computrace LoJack for Laptops.
Computrace LoJack for Laptops is available for Mac OS X 10.3 or higher. The software can run on both the PowerPC(PowerBooks and iBooks) and Intel-based (MacBooks and MacBook Pros) platforms. The price per unit for one year of service is USD$49.99.
