Absolute Manage 6.3 Now Supports Mac OS X Profile Management

VANCOUVER, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX:
ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management
solutions for computers, laptops and ultra-portable devices today announced
the release of Absolute Manage® 6.3 with a variety of Mac enhancements.

With this latest release, customers will be able to manage both OS X Profiles
as well as MCX (Managed Preference) settings on older Mac OS X computers. This
will expand the profile-based management and configuration within Absolute
Manage from mobile devices to Mac computers. In addition to creating profiles
using Absolute Manage's native profile editor, IT administrators will be able
to import and modify OS X configuration profiles they may have already created
outside of Absolute Manage.

Absolute Manage's intelligent automation and proactive, policy-based
management easily identifies what type of configuration profiles are
supported, and automatically deploys them to individual computers or groups of
computers. Absolute Manage 6.3 also includes expanded support for Samsung's
SAFE MDM functionality.

"Our customers rely on our technology to manage diverse enterprise deployments
that include a variety of operating systems and form factors," said Peter
Frankl, Vice President, Lifecycle Management at Absolute Software.  "Absolute
Manage 6.3 represents our delivery of specific requests from our customers
with deployments that include a range of Mac OS X computers. These new
features reinforce the cross-platform capabilities of Absolute Manage, as well
as our ability to partner with our customers to build meaningful features."

Availability
Absolute Manage 6.3 is available today. For more information, reference the
