Unprotected Laptops: The Million Dollar Gamble: How Much Can Your Company Afford to Lose?

Unprotected Laptops: The Million Dollar Gamble: How Much Can Your Company Afford to Lose?

A laptop is stolen every 53 seconds. Considering the hard drive alone, estimated in 2007 to contain between $1 million and $8 million worth of commercially sensitive data, plus the possibility of additional millions in liability for a data breach-- the costs are staggering. So how should companies and organizations feel about asset and data protection? They should be alarmed and take action.

With so much at stake, why are so many businesses allowing their employees to risk exposure of their company's vital information? Perception is a large part of the problem-- the perception that security solutions are just too expensive, and that computers are relatively inexpensive to replace-- but that's a dangerous misconception. Remember, a company doesn't "just lose the box" when a computer goes missing, it loses confidential information and data critical to the operation of the business.

The reality is this: Wouldn't a company spend 10 cents a day to protect millions of dollars worth of vital company data while also providing certified data destruction, hard drive data recovery and the ability to keep its damaged hard drive after it's been replaced by a new drive? With Dell's comprehensive ProSupport Mobility Services solutions, companies can do just that with custom-tailored options to fit the needs for simple and reliable laptop security as well as asset and data protection.
