60,000 Queensland Student Laptops Get Computrace Protection

By: Absolute Team | 12/23/2011

Absolute Software announced today that we have completed a Computrace software license sale covering more than 60,000 student laptops with the Queensland Government’s Department of Education and Training (DET) in Australia.

This new deal extends our existing relationship with Queensland DET and we are excited to roll out the licenses by the end of Q4. With this deal, Queensland DET has taken proactive steps to protect the data and devices of their students, giving them the ability to respond to and remediate loss and theft of their assets.

"By having access to laptops, our students are better equipped to access important online resources, resulting in improved collaboration and greater opportunity for personalised learning," stated DET’s Information and Technologies Assistant Director-General David O’Hagan. "Absolute’s Computrace technology provides schools and students with the security of knowing their machine can be tracked and traced should it ever be lost or stolen."
