Absolute Software Added to Magic Quadrant for Moblie Device Management Software

By: Absolute Team | 5/28/2013

For the first time, Absolute Software has been included in the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management (MDM) Software by Gartner, Inc. Absolute Software's solution, Absolute Manage MDM, has been positioned in the Niche Quadrant. The 2013 MDM MQ recognizes that companies are looking for enterprise security and mobile optimization with offerings that support enterprise mobile management.

"The MDM capabilities within Absolute Manage allow our customers to manage and secure their entire deployment of computers, laptops and ultra-portable devices from a single console. We are proud to provide a solution that continues to meet our customers’ evolving needs and our growth in the MDM space." - John Livingston, CEO at Absolute Software notes

Absolute Manage MDM allows customers to remotely secure and manage all the mobile devices in their deployment including Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices. The solution provides support for mobile applications management, security for corporate content, controlled network access, and automated workflows for the enrollment of employee-owned devices for organizations that support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and other programs. Customers can manage enterprise- and employee-owned devices on the go from any ultra-portable device, as well as from a PC or a Mac-based console where they can also manage laptop and desktop computers.

For inclusion in the May 23, 2013 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software, vendor solutions were considered based on criteria such as:

  • support for enterprise-class (non-carrier)
  • multiplatform support MDM (software or SaaS), with an emphasis on mobility
  • support for three different mobile OS platforms
  • at least 500,000 devices licensed
  • see our press release for full criteria
