Laptop Technology Prevents Data Exposure

Intel plans to this year release technology that will prevent thieves from getting at data stored on laptop computers, giving IT managers a means of protecting sensitive information in the event a laptop is stolen or misplaced.  The company says Intel Anti-Theft Technology will be released in the fourth quarter of this year.

Several other companies are developing anti-theft technology, including Lenovo Group, McAfee and others.
