Absolute Software Launches University Computing Initiative at Educause 2013

October 15, 2013

Campus-wide program provides endpoint security to protect students, employees, and faculty

Vancouver, Canada and Anaheim, California: (Educause 2013 - Booth #910) October 15, 2013Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management solutions for computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, will be at Educause 2013 showcasing the University Computing Initiative and the complete Absolute Software product portfolio.

The University Computing Initiative (UCI) provides patented Absolute security technology across the campus including students, employees, and faculty. For devices owned by the organization, the program includes Absolute Computrace® and Absolute Manage® – allowing IT to properly protect sensitive data and ensure these devices remain in their hands.

Personal devices owned by students are protected with Computrace LoJack for Laptops. Each student is given a separate account so they can privately maintain control over their device. And in the event of loss or theft, they can protect their personal information. Most importantly, students and parents can rely on the Absolute Investigations and Recovery Services team to work with local police to recover a stolen device.

More than 90 percent of incoming freshmen own a laptop. If these devices aren’t protected they can’t be recovered. University-owned devices are also at risk which can lead to data breaches and other security incidents that will negatively impact the school’s reputation. An Absolute-secured campus provides students, faculty, parents and the university with a proactive stance to help lower crime on campus, keeps students and faculty out of harm’s way when recovering a device, and provides parents with peace of mind.

During Educause 2013, Jennifer Bramlett, Senior Director, Investigations and Recovery Services at Absolute Software, will be speaking about end-to-end device security on campus. The presentation will share how safe campuses can be established with the University Computing Initiative. Jennifer will present on Wednesday, October 16th at 12:30 pm at the Lenovo Booth #1401 and 3:30 pm at the HP Booth #1101.

At the Absolute Software Booth all higher-education solutions will be showcased - Absolute Computrace, Absolute Manage, Absolute Service, and Absolute Secure Drive. Absolute Software has provided organizations within higher education with solutions to manage and secure IT endpoints (and the data they contain) since 1993.
