Absolute Software is First-to-Market with Mobile Theft Management for iOS
VANCOUVER, May 8, 2013
Mobile Theft Management is Now Available through all Apple Channels and
VANCOUVER, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - 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 theft.
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
