Remote Security Software

We have many remote users who use laptops and for corporate policy we need to find a 3rd party application that will allow the IT department to remotely access any and all data on those laptops and to remotely wipe and\or disable the laptop at any time.
Anyone know of good solutions for this? Thanks.

Hi,

There are a fair few solutions for this now:

On an enterprise level you may want to look at something like Druva inSync or DiskAgent which incorporates geo-location, backup and remote wipe.

Just to share in context of protection of remote machine with combination below

1. Prey\Lojack, that allows you to track the machine if the user connects to the internet.

2. A 2nd HD partition, or encrypted folder, using truecrypt. You should not mount this automatically but mount it yourself with a strong password. This device level and not management centralization available.

PGP WDE 10 knows remote wipe, too. In my opinion, we don't need remote wiping if the data is encrypted using strong passwords. Remember that remote wipe won't work if the hard drive is taken out of the laptop.
