POLICE DEPARTMENTS SEE RISE IN STOLEN COMPUTER RECOVERY
NASHVILLE, TN - May 15, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- In the past few weeks, Law
enforcement officials across the country have recovered stolen computers
protected by CSS, Inc.'s security software product, The CyberAngel
(www.thecyberangel.com). CSS, Inc. has experienced a significant increase in
reported thefts of computers and has worked successfully in recent months with
Police Departments in such major cities as Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, and Houston,
as well as smaller communities like Little Rock, Tulsa, Nashville and Fresno, to
recover stolen computers.
The patented CyberAngel software communicates detailed information about the
location of where a stolen computer is being used to CSS, Inc.'s Security
Monitoring Center. While the computer is stolen or missing, The CyberAngel's
data encryption feature renders confidential information invisible to thieves or
unauthorized users. Recent recoveries include thefts of targeted laptop
computers, one being stolen from a client's vehicle while in the homeowner's
garage and another being taken during an office break-in. CSS, Inc. provides
local authorities with enough location information to secure a search warrant
for the premises, and liaises between victim and police until recovery is a
"It (CyberAngel) saved us countless man-hours during the investigation,"
recounted Det. Crabbs, Harford County, MD Sheriff's Office. "In our case, an
insurance company's client list was contained in the laptop which was stolen.
The client's personal information could have fallen into the wrong hands,
causing a multitude of problems."
"I think it's great, should have been here long ago. For lack of a better term,
it's a LoJack for a computer," stated Det. McInerny, Hawthorne, CA Police.
"This had been the biggest burglary in our jurisdiction, and we had no leads in
this crime to date before we got the call from CSS," said Det. Hogancamp,
Homewood, IL Police. "It was amazing to find that one piece of software could
lead us to the criminals. Without the help of The CyberAngel and their technical
staff, none of this would have been possible."
