Suffolk Construction Tracks, Manages, and Secures Devices With Absolute Secure Endpoint
Suffolk Construction Builds a More Secure Environment and Enhanced Asset Management Capability With Absolute Secure Endpoint
Since its foundation in 1982, Suffolk Construction has become one of the most successful, privately-held building contractors in the U.S. The company’s success is the result of passionate and highly-skilled employees, consistently superior performance, and exemplary customer service. Suffolk has over 600 laptops used remotely across hundreds of construction sites.
Manage a Field-Based Device Fleet
To best manage its multiple work sites, Suffolk provides employees with laptops. As these laptops are largely used remotely, the company required a high-tech tool to accurately inventory and manage an off-network, field-based fleet. In addition, Suffolk sought a reliable theft recovery solution, as notebook theft proved a costly occurrence.
How They Did It
Prevent Theft and Secure Devices Off the Corporate Network
Physically tracking, managing, and securing devices that are off the network is a difficult task. Combine this with a dispersed workforce and across construction sites that are a high target for theft. To address these challenges and maximize their device investment, Suffolk Construction turned to Absolute Secure Endpoint.
Streamline Inventory Processes While Minimizing Costs
Absolute Secure Endpoint has helped streamline the company’s inventory process and minimize the high costs of device theft. Robert Umenhofer, Suffolk’s Desktop Support Team Lead, states that Absolute is a “tremendous aid” when keeping tabs on remote devices and estimates that the product provides “a nearly 100% accurate picture of where our computers are located and who is using them.”
Enhanced Asset Management Capabilities Helps Improve IT Efficiencies
Umenhofer explains that IT efficiency has increased as a result, and there is no longer the need to visit individual job sites to track down a given machine. According to Umenhofer, an investment in Absolute Secure Endpoint is a “no-brainer.”
For Suffolk Construction, Absolute Secure Endpoint:
- Streamlines Suffolk’s inventory process
- Helps easily locate devices and determine who is using them
- Minimizes the cost of device theft
