ActiveTrak has introduced an advanced defrag device and data protection service for smartphones and media tablets.
Known as GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3, the service is a significant update to ActiveTrak’s mobile security offerings.
ActiveTrak notes that GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 leverages its award-winning tracking technology and adds important new security features, including remote backup and data wipe, to its acclaimed tracking technology for lost or stolen smartphones and tablets.
This tamper proof service prevents thieves from modifying or defragging the application settings or avoiding being tracked by simply removing the SIM card.
GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 is now in a public beta and is available for download. According to a press release, anyone can try GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 for free for one month during the public beta.
"GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 is a major advance in smartphone protection," said Ken Westin, ActiveTrak CEO. "As smartphones become more powerful and more capable, people trust the device with more of their day-to-day business and personal activities, such as mobile banking and mobile commerce in addition to their email, calendar and contacts. Losing a smartphone can cause a devastating disruption to a person’s life and risk identity theft and other problems. The ability to track a smartphone and secure its data is now even more critical than protecting your wallet."
“The world is anticipating the explosion of new media tablets and slates that will be unveiled at CES,” added Westin. “2011 is going to be the year when tablet devices become the technology accessory everyone will want, including thieves. The oncoming popularity of tablets is why ActiveTrak engineered GadgetTrak Mobile Security 3 to protect tablets as effectively as we protect smartphones and laptops.”
