Our User’s Story: The Stolen Mac
I’ve used Prey several times in the past. So when we had a company device stolen from a user’s vehicle, the first thing I could think was to get Prey installed. Since this was a Mac machine, we had it in an MDM but had sent the wipe command.
The thief must have thought it was a fresh install and started adding their information. Our MDM was still enrolled. So I was able to send the command to install prey. Within 24 hours we found that the laptop had been sold to a less than reputable computer store.
We sent police officers with the serial number and we got it back. Actually, from Prey’s install to the item’s retrieval there were less than 24 hours in total. Very impressed as usual with a great product. Thank you!
Final thoughts: Highly recommend this product. Even if you have MDM this is a great compliment to your arsenal.
