Countless mobile phones, laptops and PDAs are lost every week in the UK. Replacing them is easy but reducing the risk of unauthorised third-party access to data on those devices is not. Many of these lost devices will contain sensitive information on them including business and personal details. Should you or an employee lose a device then pc-mac data management can reduce the risk of that data getting into the public domain. Not only could this loss of data cost your business and damage its reputation but could also expose yourself and your customers to a breach of the Data Protection Act and just as they can issue hefty fines for loss of data from IT equipment the ICO can do the same for PDA’s and mobile phones.
It’s worth noting that this service can be especially beneficial to larger companies when they undergo a ‘tech refresh’ and replace multiple PDA’s and mobile phones as this should be the stage undertaken before disposal of the equipment.
The pc-mac data management ‘track and get back’ service offers the following for just a small monthly cost:
- tracking of the device |keep an eye on where your business devices are and offer your staff more security when they are in the field. If a device is lost then we can uncover its location by using this simple software
- transfer of data to a replacement device | even if your device isn’t lost and you simply want to transfer all the data onto your new device
- deletion of data from original device | If you have lost your device or want to wipe your data from it
