There is a growing Black Market demand not only for computers, but for swapped out internal parts, like chips, drivers, memory, etc.. Many universities, corporations, and government facilities are reporting losses of hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. Others are reporting millions of dollars of losses. The most disturbing aspect is that only 5%-15% is due to forcible entry, while 85% to 95% is due to internal theft.

Because most theft is internal, conventional alarm systems and card access systems are not effective. You need to find a computer security product that can protect equipment 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Replacement costs which deflate your department's budget directly affect raises, improvements, and equipment purchases. Even if you received a discount on the initial cost of the computer(s) - now that they are stolen, you still need to replace them.
