BackStopp is a simple but effective tool
to help an organisation protect its
mobile data in the event of the loss or
theft of an employee’s laptop, PDA or
Laptops are becoming smaller,
more powerful and cheaper
Improvements in mobile
connectivity allow laptop users
to send and receive more
information whilst on the move
1 laptop and its data is lost or
stolen every 50 seconds
Traditional Security Tools
Traditional security tools require users to remember long
and cryptic passwords.
Other data security tools rely on external plug in
hardware which is often stored and lost with the device.
Invisible to the user
No user passwords
No hardware requirement
No restrictions, BackStopp
protects all data regardless of
its location on the device
No expensive infrastructure to
install or maintain
Employees can activate BackStopp against their lost or stolen laptop
by either notifying their organisation’s support department OR
by logging in directly to the BackStopp console.
Multiple communication channels
BackStopp uses the most effective communication method
available to locate a lost laptop. BackStopp’s utilisation of the
GSM network means a device can be found almost anywhere
on earth and if necessary decommissioned even if the device
isn’t connected to the internet.
US DoD Data Deletion
Upon receiving a secure decommission message all data
files on the lost or stolen device will be destroyed using
US Department of Defence standards.
BackStopp also deletes critical system files which render
the device useless to the thief.
BackStopp remotely initiates
pin hole cameras on the
stolen device to provide a
photo of the first person to
use the device.
GSM cell triangulation can
also provide an approximate
grid reference or point on an
BackStopp Wi-Fi / RFID integration
As soon as a device breaches a predefined parameter,
e.g. it leaves an authorised area during working hours,
BackStopp automatically issues the decommission
command and starts tracking the device OR …
.. BackStopp informs the legitimate user or security
personnel of a potential security issue by SMS or email.
BackStopp's integrated volume encryption means that
any thief who attempts to deactivate BackStopp or
remove the device’s hard disk will find nothing more than
highly encrypted data.
BackStopp integrates with leading providers of online
data backup services so all your data can easily and
quickly be restored on to a new or replacement device.
BackStopp allows the user to specify a date range when the
device should not be used, for example during a holiday.
If the device is used Backstopp detects it and either
automatically deletes the data or sends an SMS or e-mail
alert to the legitimate user or the organisation's HR
BackStopp uses the quickest and most cost effective transport
mechanisms to detect and decommission a laptop before the data
can be compromised.
Uses GSM network for maximum speed as well as internet and
Culprit identification for law enforcement agencies.
Produces a comprehensive audit trail which is part of an effective
Information Assurance policy.
Low cost Risk Management for your mobile data.
