Absolute Insight for a Comprehensive View of Customer IT Environments
VANCOUVER, July 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and
management solutions for computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones,
today announced the launch of Absolute Insight, a comprehensive web-based remote monitoring, security, and management
solution for managed service providers (MSPs).
With Absolute Insight, MSPs have a complete view of each IT asset in all
customer deployments, including relationships and dependencies within
the organization based on information from hardware, software, active
directory, HR, procurement, and other data sources. Using a cloud-based
console, MSPs have the ability to remotely track, secure, and manage IT
environments on behalf of their customers.
Absolute Insight is based on two web-based reporting portals - the
Technician Portal which MSPs use for a complete view of all customer
assets under management, and the Customer Portal which provides MSP
customers with visibility into the security and management of their
individual environments. Along with extensive reporting and
visibility, users can provide clients with superior service including
audit and compliance reports, proactive alerting for suspicious
activity, lease completion information, and expiring warranties which
allow IT to react and mitigate any potential security issue.
"Absolute Insight provides a complete IT management solution for managed
service providers. It is a market first solution designed to meet the
increasing needs of MSPs to remotely track, manage, secure, and service
end-customer assets," said Matt Meanchoff Vice President, Services at
Absolute Software. "With our Absolute persistence technology, we can
take cross-platform IT management to the next level by providing MSPs
with reliable access to critical data that can help them better manage
and secure each of their customer's deployments."
Leveraging Absolute persistence technology, Absolute Insight provides MSPs with a persistent connection to each
device in their customers' deployments. This ensures an automatic
reinstallation of the security and management software agents even if
the firmware is flashed, the device is re-imaged, the hard drive is
replaced, or if a tablet or smartphone is wiped clean to factory
settings. This allows MSP administrators to secure and manage each
device regardless of user or location.
"Absolute Insight strengthens Evry One's market offering - it improves
our service level, giving us a distinct advantage over other MSPs,"
said Patrik Hammarberg, Manager, Client Center at
EVRY One Outsourcing Services. "We have one-click access to numerous
reports with a variety of information including hardware, software,
anti-malware, encryption, call history, missing devices, lease, and
warranty. Having a 360 degree service desk view of our assets is a huge
value. Providing our customers with real-time access to their managed
devices gives them peace of mind."
Absolute Insight is available today. For more information visit: www.absolute.com/absolute-insight
