Arm Your Laptop

Caveo Technology introduced Caveo Anti-Theft, an integrated security solution for laptops that offers both theft deterrence and data protection. Available in the form of a PC Card, Caveo Anti-Theft deters theft by detecting motion and issuing audible warning signals. If an armed computer is moved beyond a distance specified by the owner, the system assumes theft and implements strong security responses, including shutting down the computer, preventing access to the operating system and sounding an audible alarm (optional).

The product also features an encryption option to protect confidential information. The system is independent of the computer, and Caveo's proprietary Motion Password provides an easy method of arming and disarming the system whether the computer is on or off.

Caveo Anti-Theft PC Cards retail for $99. For more information visit the Caveo Web site.

Mapping for Mobiles

IntelliWhere announced IntelliWhere OnDemand, a new vector-based mapping software product for personal digital assistants. IntelliWhere OnDemand was designed for organizations that employ mobile workforces in government, transportation and utilities, who require wireless field access to data such as maps, diagrams and asset information from GIS databases.

IntelliWhere OnDemand used highly compact file formats to ensure optimal speed. Its interface is simple to use, requiring no prior GIS knowledge and minimal training. With a few simple clicks, a field worker can zoom in and out, run basic searches and queries, redline, call up details of an asset, capture GPS positions, capture other critical data and edit attributes for uploading.
