New improvements in Version 1.4 give much more control over how the system operates with Windows and other security products, allowing it to function even more effectively with laptop tracking systems. As Director John Brazier says, “DeadMan’s Handle now gives companies even more confidence in their laptop information security, and gives them a chance to check that the security has held up.”
