University Deters Data Theft: Using Breakthrough 'Non Stop Laptop Guardian ' Technology

Cover
To further support its campus-wide wireless Internet service and better protect student, faculty and staff data, Charleston Southern University is using new Alcatel-Lucent technology to allow the school's IT Department to remotely oversee, secure and manage wireless laptop computers, and "lockdown" these devices if lost/stolen to prevent asset loss, and more importantly, protect critical data.

If a missing laptop is later found, or located using NLG's Global Positioning System (GPS) feature, the encryption key can be enabled again, restoring all data and returning the laptop to full functionality. "This solution was the ultimate answer to laptop security concerns, and also fit perfectly with major investment in campus-wide WiFi communications. With NLG, we can continue to encourage wireless laptop use and the high level of productivity these devices provide."

At present, CSU faculty and staff are provided NLG. A program to offer it to students at cost or at special pricing is being explored. Student grant funding for NLG is also a possibility in the future.
