Mobile Theft Management is Now Available through all Apple Channels and
VANCOUVER, May 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for endpoint security and management
solutions for computers, laptops and ultra-portable devices today
announced the launch of Computrace® Mobile Theft Management (MTM), the first - and only - iOS loss management and theft recovery service
on the market for the enterprise.
Computrace MTM allows organizations to safeguard the iPad and iPad mini
devices in their deployment. Based upon the same investigative
techniques used by the Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services team for Absolute Computrace theft recoveries, customers now have the
infrastructure and support to prevent and respond to iOS loss and
The Computrace MTM service provides two components: loss prevention and
theft recovery. The loss prevention program provides customers with the
tools to implement best practices within their organization and amongst
users to ensure these iOS devices are handled responsibly.
The theft recovery component is an extension of the loss management
program. If an iPad is reported stolen, the Absolute Investigations
team will work closely with local law enforcement to assist in the
investigation and recover the device. The theft recovery program
includes a service guarantee in the event the Absolute Investigations
team is unable to recover a stolen iPad.
"The Computrace Mobile Theft Management Service provides our customers
with access to the elite Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services
team, which has assisted in more than 29,000 successful recoveries in
97 countries," said John Livingston, CEO of Absolute Software. "As a
result of this hard work, we have built a global network of
relationships with law enforcement agencies and innovative
investigative techniques our customers can leverage to recover stolen
iPad and iPad mini devices. Now that Computrace Mobile Theft Management
is available through Apple channels and distribution, we can extend the
service to all Apple customers."
"The Roosevelt High School 1:1 student iPad initiative was a bold and
unprecedented program designed to immerse students in the instructional
use of state of the art technology, but there were a host of potential
issues that came along with allowing student technology to leave
campus," said Jedediah Gilchrist, Senior Manager, Infrastructure and
Operations at Portland Public Schools. "Absolute Software was the only
company we found able to offer the kind of comprehensive plan to
respond to theft (in the event it should occur) that would give staff,
administrators and parents the peace of mind they need in order to let
this program flourish."
Computrace Mobile Theft Management Service is available today. For more
