Sprint offers laptop security solution

Tech brief

SprintSecure Laptop Guardian is designed to enable around-the-clock security through remote monitoring, location and locking if a laptop PC is lost or stolen.

Sprint said the product can increase productivity of mobile staff and simplify security management because all capabilities are delivered wirelessly to the laptop anywhere on the nationwide Sprint Mobile Broadband network. The solution uses a 3G Mobile Broadband connection card that serves as a two-factor authentication device. The card is an ignition key, and users must insert the card into the laptop for access. The same card can be controlled by an administrator to remotely revoke authentication privileges, always retaining control of the laptop and, more important, corporate data on the laptop.
