I have been asked to search for a system to get info from our stolen PCs* and gives us info to recover them.
I have searched the web and there are plenty of systems, but most of them rely in a program running in the OS. The trouble is that our systems have a corporate login/static IP and a bunch of particularities, so I must assume that stolen PCs will be formatted before being put to use.
So far the only system that I have found that looks like what I need is Computrace from Absolute Software. Intel Anti-Theft technology is not useful because most of the PCs to protect are desktops.
So the questions are:
- Can someone point me to similar products that can track a PC after being formatted. I am a little surprised that I only could find Computrace.
- Has anybody had any experience with Computrace? Was the PC formatted?
*1 I do not mean that we stole them; they will be stolen from us sometime in the future. :-)
