Education

Secure your school data, networks and student devices with Absolute Software.

Higher Education

Delivering meaningful education has never been more exciting. Text books are quickly being replaced with digital devices, classrooms can be virtual, and students can learn from just about anywhere in the world.

The technology you need to support this reality can be complex and expensive. And since most education budgets are limited, how you spend (and safeguard) your investment is probably one of the most important decisions you will make.

K-12 Education

The IT landscape for organizations within Higher Education is unique. Administratively, facility-owned assets contain enrollment and personal student information for which you are ultimately responsible. Additional devices are provided for classroom and lab work. And then there are student-owned devices that represent an entirely different challenge.

If your IT assets are not safe, neither is the reputation of your school. So how do you maintain control over such a vast and ever-changing environment?

Absolute Software has been providing schools, universities, and other educational organizations with solutions to manage and secure their IT endpoints since 1993:

  • Absolute Computrace for endpoint security is used by hundreds of schools across the nation to centrally track, locate, and secure IT assets within a single cloud-based console. Asset inventory cycles are reduced from days to minutes. Alerts are sent as soon as suspicious behavior is detected. And you don't need to spend additional budget on replacement computers because we recover stolen devices. Guaranteed.
  • Absolute Manage for endpoint management maintains the health of each device in your deployment. Support Mac, PC, and iOS devices within a single console. Prevent the spread of viruses and forbidden applications. Use every software license and Apple app before you buy more. And redirect the money you save from implementing Power Management policies to more meaningful school initiatives.
  • Absolute Service is an IT Service Management (ITSM) solution. It combines people, process, and information technology so that IT services can align with the needs of the business.
