If you’re prone to misplacing your laptop, and it has valuable information on it, you might want to check this out. Seagate has devised a new way to prevent a laptop from being booted up or data being read off the drive without authentication.

The new technology is embedded directly in the hard drive — the computer’s storehouse of data. It requires users to have a key, or password, before being able to access the disk drive or boot up the machine. Without the password, the hard drive would be useless, Seagate officials said.
