Dell has released the results of a new study that claims 12,000 laptops are lost in airports across the nation each week and that 70% of the lost notebooks are never reclaimed. The study was conducted by Dr. Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute.

The study also says that 53% of people admit to carrying confidential business information and 65% of those people admit to not taking steps to protect the data in the event of loss. To help prevent the data from falling into the wrong hands Dell offers a service that can remotely delete data on lost notebooks.

"We've introduced new Dell ProSupport Mobility Services to help costumers protect their laptops and the data that resides on them. Offers included are things like laptop tracking and recovery and a remote data delete option so that if your laptop does go lost or missing we're able to reach out and remotely delete that sensitive data so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands."
