Computrace Extends Ease of IT Security Management

By: Absolute Team | 4/30/2009

Absolute Software made two big announcements recently about it's leading laptop security software platform, Computrace.

New Computrace Plug-In for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

Not only is LoJack for Laptops (Computrace for consumers) now available in the McAfee online store, but Computrace customers can now view asset tracking and security information within the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO)!

This new plug-in allows IT administrators to use the ePO software to deploy Computrace to ePO managed assets, to view reports from one central place (vs two dashboards), and to set up summary reports on computers & mobile assets with Computrace installed.

The Absolute Customer Center will continue to offer additional ways to manage your Computrace-protected assets, including geolocation tracking, recovery of missing assets, and performance of remote data deletes. Learn more about this news here.
