remotely manage all the devices in their deployments, including PC,
Mac®, Android, iOS, and Windows® Phone devices, from within a single

"Mobility has transformed the enterprise. Employee satisfaction and
productivity have increased, shared work is truly collaborative, and
communication is no longer restricted by user or location. Absolute
customers take advantage of these outcomes by applying a user-centric
approach to mobility," said Geoff Haydon, CEO at Absolute Software.
"All of the devices used by employees - including computers, tablets,
and smartphones - can be easily secured and managed through a single
console. This approach ensures that the benefits of mobility are not
inhibited by the security needs of the organization. It's immensely
satisfying to see, what we feel are the unique cross-platform
capabilities of Absolute Manage, recognized by leading industry
analysts at Gartner, Inc."
