If your employees use company-owned laptops, you should know that theft rates are soaring. Fight back: Install software that will help you catch the thief. CompuTrace software (800-220-0733; $90 for one year) tracks down a stolen computer. After you alert CompuTrace of the missing PC, it will be able to tell from where the modem is dialing in.
