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. A competing product, CyberAngel (800-501-4344; $81 for one year), freezes up your machine if anyone who doesn’t know your password tries to log on. It also notifies a monitoring service.
