ZTRACE Technologies recognized the downsides of the wonderful world of mobile computing -- mobility and portability. This all started because ZTRACE’s founder found his home burglarized and the thief didn't steal the laptop. That started the "what ifs" that led to the development of ZTRACE GOLD.
How Does It Work?
ZTRACE GOLD is installed on the laptop's hard drive and registered with the ZSERVER with a unique identification. Every time the laptop is connected to the Internet, ZTRACE GOLD checks with the ZSERVER to determine the laptop's status. ZTRACE GOLD operates in stealth mode, with no directories, files, icons, or sounds ever appearing on the laptop.
In the event of theft, the owner notifies the ZTRACE Monitoring Center via phone, e-mail, fax, or the Web. The ZSERVER tracking system is activated and waits for the next connection of that laptop to the Internet.
ZTRACE GOLD works with any type of Internet connection, including dial-up, cable modem, DSL, T1 and wireless. It recognizes and traces through both internal and external networks for LAN/WAN configurations to pinpoint actual location of the missing laptop. ZTRACE GOLD supports intelligent telephone dialing capabilities to trace the location through any public or private phone system, including dial-out prefixes, international calls, and can even capture blocked or unlisted calls through caller ID.
When the missing computer connects to the Internet, the stealth application receives a signal from the zSERVER and the computer reports its own location.
