By: Absolute Editorial Team | 5/9/2013

This week we formally announced our latest service, Computrace Mobile Theft Management (MTM), the first and only iOS loss management and theft recovery service on the market for the enterprise.

As we shared in our earlier blog post, Computrace MTM leverages the proven experience and expertise of the Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services team to the safeguarding of enterprise iPad and iPad mini devices.

"The Computrace Mobile Theft Management Service provides our customers with access to the elite Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services team, which has assisted in more than 29,000 successful recoveries in 97 countries." - John Livingston, CEO of Absolute Software

Combining loss preventing with theft recovery, Computrace MTM allows us to access the global network of relationships with law enforcement agencies to recover stolen iPad and iPad mini devices.

Computrace MTM in Action - Roosevelt High School 1:1 iPad Initiative

Roosevelt High School implemented a 1:1 student iPad initiative "designed to immerse students in the instructional use of state of the art technology, but there were a host of potential issues that came along with allowing student technology to leave campus," said Jedediah Gilchrist, Senior Manager, Infrastructure and Operations at Portland Public Schools. "Absolute Software was the only company we found able to offer the kind of comprehensive plan to respond to theft (in the event it should occur) that would give staff, administrators and parents the peace of mind they need in order to let this program flourish."

For educational use of iPads in 1:1 programs, it's not just about the protection of the device but also of the student. As we shared recently, students with school-issued iPads are becoming targets for theft(which can turn violent). In addition to responding to theft, here's an article on how to Keep School Tablets Safe.
