Protect your students and staff by safeguarding your assets with Absolute Safe Schools.

Educational organizations are embracing mobile devices to provide a more flexible approach to classroom learning. Laptops and tablets are enhancing the learning experience by motivating students, providing a wealth of instant information, and eliminating costly textbooks that date quickly. But along with the benefits of mobile devices comes the associated risks. Device theft is on the rise and some students are becoming targets of crime.

Absolute offers you the insight you need to assess risk scenarios with school devices and apply remote security measures so you can protect each endpoint. To promote a safe school environment for students and faculty, the Absolute Safe Schools program will help you educate users about device safety, teaching students and staff how to avoid scenarios where they may be at risk.

Absolute gives you the confidence to enable a digital learning environment while protecting your students and securing your technology investment. Our adaptive endpoint security solutions provide you with a persistent connection to all of your endpoints and the data they contain. This means you’re always in control, even if a device is off the network or in the hands of an unauthorized user.
