By: Absolute Team | 8/5/2014

Absolute Software today announced that Gartner has rated its client management solution, Absolute Manage, in its June 13, 2014 Critical Capabilities for Client Management Tools Report.

Gartner gave Absolute Manage the highest score of 4.7 out of 5 for Cross-Platform Support and tied for third-highest score of 4.4 out of 5 for Administration and Usage out of the 14 vendors reviewed.

Of the four use cases named in the report, Absolute Manage tied for the highest product score in the Resource and Expertise-Constrained use case, 3.7 out of 5, and was one of three vendors who were rated second-highest vendor in the Total Client Management use case with 3.5 out of 5 out of the 14 vendors reviewed.

We believe the breadth of device coverage continues to be one of the strongest market differentiators for Absolute Manage. Our customers can remotely manage all the devices in their deployments, including PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Windows Phones, all from within a single management console. IT can replace multiple systems with a single solution so they can easily determine the status of each device, conduct routine IT maintenance, manage enterprise mobility, and securely support the use of employee-owned devices to support user productivity.

“Mobility has transformed the enterprise. Employee satisfaction and productivity have increased, shared work is truly collaborative, and communication is no longer restricted by user or location. Absolute customers take advantage of these outcomes by applying a user-centric approach to mobility,” said Geoff Haydon, CEO at Absolute Software.

When all devices are secured and managed through a single console, organizations ensure the benefits of mobility are not inhibited by the security needs of the organization. At Absolute, we believe that you shouldn't be forced to interact with devices using multiple portals to perform different tasks on a variety of form factors. This Unified IT approach saves you time, standardizes IT skillets, simplifies IT infrastructure and mobilizes IT.
