Absolute MTM for Chromebooks and iPads

Keep Your Students and Devices Safe and Sound

You’ve made a significant investment in technology for your learning programs. But have you considered how to address the risks you will encounter when you place laptops and tablets in the hands of students?

Loss and theft is inevitable. Often, these devices are specifically targeted by criminals, putting students at risk. Damage can also occur when students mishandle or abuse their devices.

So how can you protect your technology investment when it’s spread across multiple school districts and in the hands of students who are constantly on the move? Most importantly, how can you keep your students safe?

Absolute Mobile Theft Management (MTM) combines effective security technology and on-site student safety programs so you can track, locate, and recover your endpoints while ensuring the safety of your students. Absolute MTM supports Chromebooks and iPads. Combine this with Absolute DDS for Windows, Apple and Android, to protect all of your devices in a single cloud-based console.
