The ultimate protection from being “iJacked” with Ken Westin, CEO of ActiveTrak

GadgetTrak is about as cool as mobile security can get. Not for the fact that the technology can remotely wipe devices or send a message to the thief, not even the fact it can remotely backup my contacts and all that is important on the device. The really cool part is that, even if the thief changes the SIM and thinks he/she has outsmarted the rightful owner, it sends the new phone number via SMS to the owner. Brilliant!

This session with Ken Westin, Founder and CEO of ActiveTrak and GadgetTrak, goes beyond the ins and outs of the technology and touches on both the reasons that he started the company and what kind of successes they’ve had in recovery — including some great stories of foiled thievery.

Enjoy!
