With technology advancements and widespread adoption of connectivity, more and more users are using a wide range of devices to access information whenever and wherever they want. With increase in laptop usage, there is also an increase in laptop theft. This paper describes how Intel® Anti-Theft Service (IATS) powered by Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel AT) helps protect both the asset (device) and data by locking down the device if lost or stolen. In this paper, we outline the working of Intel AT, operation of IATS, design and development of IATS from user experience viewpoint, and conclude with shared quantitative and qualitative metrics for implementation of Intel AT with customers and partners.
