What They’re Saying

My laptop was stolen when my car was burglarized as my wife and I were passing through Oklahoma City. The crooks took everything we had in our backseat. Fortunately, I had affixed a STOP Plate when I originally purchased my laptop. After I had discovered the burglary, I called STOP to report my laptop stolen. Not more than an hour later, I received a phone call from STOP (Brad) informing me that the perpetrators had discarded my laptop when they discovered the STOP Plate. Someone had found my laptop and called the number to report the laptop found. Brad gave me the person's contact info and I was able to get in touch and retrieve my laptop. I was ecstatic because the laptop was the most expensive item that was stolen and the information on the hard drive was very important to me. The STOP Plate really works and I plan to recommend it to my friends. Thank you STOP for providing the great service! - Nicholas (End User)
Since implementing the STOP solution, the loss rate of our laptops dropped from an average of three per year to zero. We haven't experienced a single loss since the introduction of your product. The STOP plates proved to be an easy solution to a costly problem. - Keith Rickles - Regional IT Manager - Lehigh Cement Southern Division
We are very pleased thus far with the STOP program. We intend to continue to use the product and expand upon it… Please feel free to add us to your website client list. - Gregory M. Steeber - Technology Coordinator - Belle Vernon Area School District
STOP is working well for us. STOP along with other procedures implemented has eliminated theft and loss. Our users have become intimidated by the plate and therefore respect the equipment and the policies. It's been great. - Pat Hansen - Director of Information Technology - Marymount Manhattan College
After experiencing laptop thefts from our offices, we turned to STOP to remedy the problem. We hoped that putting the STOP Security Plate on our equipment would make them less likely to be stolen. The number of thefts dropped to zero shortly after installing the plates on 2000 laptops. It really is a visible deterrent. - Robert Doyle - Project Leader - UST Inc.
You guys are fantastic. Everything has gone so smoothly and you nearly bent over backwards for me. Thanks so much for everything - you are a perfect example of wonderful customer service. - Chad M. Stone - Information Technology - Lehigh Cement Company
No laptop should be without one. - Simson Garfinkel - as quoted in Web Security, Privacy & Commerce with Gene Spafford, published by O'Reilly & Associates, Inc.
Good news... my laptop was returned! My friend said the laptop reappeared in his suite. I have to conclude the thief chickened out on the laptop due to the STOP Security Plate, but kept the cords and such because none of it had any kind of identification. I cannot thank you enough for your help. Truly, STOP saved a lot of important files and also my personal sanity. It was among the best 25-dollar purchases I've ever made. - Abe Riesman - Student - Harvard University
The STOP Team is Awesome! I wanted to give a big THANKS for helping us with setting up our registration database as well as the great support that you've always given us. Thanks a million to Isabelle & Doug. - Dao Khemthongsengsay - Allied Waste Industries, Inc.
I am a true believer in STOP. - Lyne Denis Investigator – Preventionist Concordia University Montreal, Quebec Canada
Used with other means of security, such as stealth tracking software or file encryption and/or password and biometrics authentication, STOP could be the final element to an agency's security system. - Side bar - STOP Laptop Theft
Thanks a million! You guys really are the best. - Chelle Hollingsworth - ProSys Information Systems [An Authorized STOP Partner/Reseller]

"Another alternative is to attach a security plate to the laptop, so as to squelch the resale value of a stolen PC. STOP Security Plate, for instance, is a metal warning plate that affixes to a laptop using Very High Bond (VHB) adhesive. It features a chemically bonded tattoo beneath, stating "Stolen Property," along with high visibility stickers..."
