Absolute Protects Getac's Global Suite of Rugged Devices

By: Arieanna Schweber | 3/19/2015

Absolute Software today announced an expanded partnership with Getac, a leading manufacturer of rugged computers. Absolute’s Persistence technology will now be available on Getac’s global suite of rugged mobile solutions, including its rugged netbooks and rugged tablets.

Getac designs its devices to be “rugged from the ground up,” finding solutions to everything from sunlight readability to power management and even salt fog protection. Developed to fit specific vertical needs with features and specifications tailored for in-the-field performance, Getac customers will have expanded access to superior level security and management features by Absolute Software to remotely track and manage deployed devices, on or off the corporate network.

“Getac rugged computers are designed to get business critical data in the hands of knowledge workers in the field, no matter where their job takes them,” said Mark Grace, Vice President Worldwide OEM and Business Development, Channel, at Absolute. “We are pleased that Getac has expanded its focus to protect not only the physical device, but also help its customers secure corporate data with our Persistence technology.”

We’d like to think our Persistence technology offers the same “rugged” security support that Getac customers have come to expect from their devices. Persistence technology provides you with visibility and control over all devices, regardless of user or location. If an attempt is made to remove the Absolute Software client, it will automatically reinstall so you can continue to secure devices and the data they contain. No other technology can do this.

This week we announced an expanded collaboration with HP for their new Education Edition Devices, further expanding our list of Persistence supported devices. Learn more about how Persistence works here.
