A server may intermittently receive from a client  location information such as GPS information  triangulation information based onone or more Wi-Fi access points  and IP trace information. The server may determine theclient’s location by (a) determining  for an interval of time  whether GPS information triangulation information  and IP trace information are available for the client  and (b) based onthe available GPS information  triangulation information  and IP trace information  determiningthe present location of the client  e.g.  by determining a weighted arithmetic mean or by using asequence of types of location information ordered based on accuracy. In response to following asecurity policy  the server may perform an action  specified by the security policy  based on thepresent location of the client.
