Have any of you heard of PreyProject?

Prey Anti Theft: Track & find stolen Phones, Tablets and Laptops

I was looking for a Windows 8 program to install on my tablet that would stop any theft that may happen.

Just looking for your guys suggestions.

Lookout is a good mobile antivirus that can track your phone if lost or stolen you can also lock and wipe your tablet remotely if you pay for a subscription.
