By: Absolute Team | 6/17/2014

Absolute Software has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Niche quadrant of the Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Software Magic Quadrant (formerly the Mobile Device Management Software Magic Quadrant). This is the second year Absolute Software has been included in this Magic Quadrant.

Our EMM solution, Absolute Manage, allows customers to remotely manage and secure all the mobile devices in their deployments including Android, iOS, and Windows Phone devices. Unlike other vendors, Absolute Manage extends management capabilities to include PC and Mac computers, providing customers with the ability to manage all of their devices within a single console.

Gartner magic quadrant emm detail 2014Absolute Manage's cross-platform capabilities include mobile application management, secure content distribution and automated workflows for the enrollment of employee-owned devices – as well as full client management for Windows and Mac devices.

The EMM market is evolving rapidly. CIOs want to leverage mobility to better run, grow and transform their organizations, but they are not willing to support multiple technologies and consoles to do so. Absolute Manage allows customers to provide consistent security and management across all devices, regardless of form factor or operating system.

"We are pleased to see Absolute Software place for the second time in the Enterprise Mobility Management Magic Quadrant," said Errol Olsen, Interim CEO at Absolute Software. "We work closely with our customers to deliver the unified IT experience they require so they can manage all of their corporately-owned and BYOD devices from a single console."
