How does Zapeze work?

Zapeze runs in the background as a small inconspicuous utility and periodically connects to the Zapeze server to check for commands issued by you. It uses minimal system resources and does not interfere with your daily work in any way.

Zapeze is like an insurance policy against data and identity theft. It can provide you with complete peace of mind at a very small price.

You manage your computers registered to this service via our secure web interface. If one of your computers is stolen, you simply log on to your Zapeze account from any online computer and issue a "wipe data" command. The client software installed on the stolen computer receives this hidden command (usually within minutes), and proceeds with erasure of all data. After completion, the computer will lock up. Although the computer has been stolen and you cannot access it physically, your remote command will insure your data is completely erased, thereby protecting your security.

What if the stolen computer never connects to the Internet?

In our experience, most thieves, even those who are interested in your data, do connect stolen computers to the Internet either directly, or via some network that has access to the Internet. Using networking is the most convenient method to copy data from one computer to another. If a thief wants to try accessing your bank account online or some other password protected site you use, he will naturally be online, and Zapeze will get to him before he gets to you! Of course, if the thief is only interested in your hardware, he may proceed to immediately re-format your hard disk; in such a case your data is still safe, even though our software did not have a chance to run.

Will Zapeze protect my data in every possible circumstance?

Nothing in life is ever 100% certain except death and taxes, as they say. There is chance and probability in everything else. If a professional thief is following you, waiting for an opportunity to steal your laptop and steal your identity, there is probably little that can stop him. But better than 95% of laptop thefts are by casual thieves. Laptops are stolen when people set them down in the airport for a moment to attend to something. They are stolen from hotel rooms, from locked cars and from places of business. Often the thief is merely after the hardware. However, if it happens to you, you have no way of knowing whether all your personal data was compromised or not. Until now!

Once you have issued the "wipe data" command, you can check the status of your stolen computer any time you like from within your account on our server. You can see immediately when the command has been received by the stolen computer, setting your mind at ease. Insurance can always replace the hardware, but you have the security of knowing your personal data is completely wiped out.
