WestinTech debuts Mac anti-theft software

Verey anti-theft software

WestinTech, a company specializing in anti-theft software, has debuted its latest program, Verey. The package is specifically aimed at Mac desktop systems, and helps to safeguard them by sending out notifications when a system is stolen. Alerts are normally sent out via e-mail, but Twitter integration allows updates via SMS, instant messaging or the web. Inside an alert is important tracking information, such as the IP and MAC addresses, as well the serial number and nearby Wi-Fi networks. The program will also attempt to record video clips, using an iSight or another attached camera.

While a computer is reported stolen, Verey will also lock it up after a certain amount of use, displaying contact information and other data set by the legitimate owner. Verey is a Universal Binary and costs $40; no subscriptions are required, but price only covers use on a single system.
