By: Absolute Team | 6/4/2014

Absolute Software has been providing schools, universities, and other educational organizations with solutions to manage and secure their IT endpoints since 1993. We are proud to announce that we now protect, secure and manage the devices of 21 out of the 25 largest school districts in the United States.

Absolute Software works collaboratively with these school districts to provide a safer environment while managing and securing mobile devices, including Absolute's industry-only persistent monitoring, protection, investigation, and recovery services. With our technology in place, students and staff can focus on learning and IT managers can significantly reduce security risk and ensure student safety while reducing vendor costs and overhead, allowing more resources and budget to be allocated to learning initiatives.

“Absolute Software is a trusted partner of Lewisville Independent School District. Absolute Software allows us to remotely manage all of our 69,000+ mobile, OS X and Windows devices with a single solution,” said Mark Bulthaup, Desktop Management Lead at Lewisville Independent School District. “With Absolute Manage we are able to provision devices, keep track of software licenses and easily push out software updates in minutes, freeing up valuable IT time for other tasks.” Learn more about how Lewisville Independent School District has gained efficiencies and cost-savings.
