VANCOUVER, May 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Absolute® (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and data risk management solutions, today launched its Chromebook™ extension to the Absolute Mobile Theft Management (MTM) solution for Education customers.
The Chromebook MTM extension provides greater depth of reporting for hardware, software, and geolocation information within the Absolute Data & Device Security (DDS) console. These are important enhancements that support the rapid adoption of Chromebook devices within Education organizations.
These organizations rely on Absolute to provide effective student and endpoint protection based on a combination of technology and on-site programs, allowing them to effectively monitor, locate, and recover devices while ensuring the safety of their students.
Absolute MTM includes free-of-charge access to the Absolute Safe Schools program. Delivered by the Absolute Investigations team, the program helps educate users about device safety, provides awareness on-campus and within the community, and teaches students and staff how to avoid scenarios where they may be at risk.
Additional services include a lost and found component as well as theft recovery investigations where the Absolute Investigations team works closely with local law enforcement to assist in the recovery of the device.
"Absolute has worked closely with Education organizations for more than 20 years, supporting the rapid adoption of technology in the classroom," said Eric Aarrestad, senior vice president, Product Management, Absolute. "Our Chromebook MTM extension allows our Education customers to maintain a reliable connection across all of the devices in their deployment so they can safeguard students as well as their technology investment."
