Company description

If your laptop, mobile phone or removable media device is stolen, GadgetTrak® software will tell you where it is, who has it and in some cases even what they're wearing.

 

Based in Portland, Oregon, GadgetTrak Inc. is the leading innovator of theft recovery and data protection solutions for mobile devices. GadgetTrak's innovative and patented solutions protect today's most popular mobile platforms including Mac OS X, Windows, Blackberry,Windows Mobile as well as custom embedded solutions. GadgetTrak notonly provides the technology to recover and protect data on thesedevices, but also recovery assistance.

 

GadgetTrak has three core products:

 

GadgetTrak®  Laptop Security utilizes advanced wi-fi positioning to provide the device owner with the precise location of their device within 10-20 meters of accuracy without the need for GPS. In addition if the system has a web camera integrated, it will capture a photo of the thief every 30 minutes. The software currently supports both Mac   and Windows.

 

GadgetTrak® Mobile Security provides the most advanced data protection and theft recovery solutions for smart phones, enabling control of your device and data in the event of theft. The software allows the device owner to send remote commands via SMS to wipe data from the device, track it, make it call another number so you can listen in on thief, back data up and other features. The software currently supports Blackberry and Windows Mobile.

 

GadgetTrak's USBTrak is tracking technology for portable media devices including flash drives, external hard drives and other devices with a memory partition. When a device with the software is accessed it will trigger it to hijack the computer it is connected to and send data to the device owner.

 

GadgetTrak's Lost & Found Tags -  Our lost and found service consists of metalic highly durable tags that can be placed on items and registered through the GadgetTrak website. The tags are sold online as well as bundled with our software or part of customer loyalty plans in key resellers.
