I do think it is well worth the cost and consideration, especially if you are using it on devices containing electronic medical records, personal health information or personal privacy information or devices that contain proprietary information, critical business information or other information that needs to be securely protected. It can also be used to track a device (individual) as well if that is your goal. We use it as an extra precaution to track our mental health clinicians that do home visits. It allows us to keep track of their whereabouts, in case an issue arises at a client's home. We are able to send someone out to check or assist, alert emergency services or send law enforcement if a situation should arise.

Once we had got 20k plus users to blacklist. The data was too big. We wanted the results within some hours. When we used SDM and did all in one shot. It hardly took 2 hours. The same we presented to the clients in our weekly call. Got appreciation as well for that. Yes, just to summarize, even though we have huge datas, this helps us to fetch the results too easily. Thanks.

Pros
Absolute
  • I tracked a stolen computer all the way to Africa from USA and disabled it.
  • I set up geofences with alerts. As soon as a computer got a wifi connection outside of our fences it would email me its current location.
  • Absolute's persistent technology was helpful. -Even when a pawn shop would attempt to "wipe" a device before getting it online, as soon as it got online it notified me of the OS re-installation and current location. We could call authorities and they could recover the device for us. And they were happy it made their job easier and deterred the pawn shop from reselling stolen devices.

Cons
Absolute
  • I do not know where I would consider this product to be deficient in functionality, difficult to use or any major changes that needed to be addressed.
  • I wish the pricing of this product was a little lower, but I do think it is well worth the cost and consideration, especially if you are using it on devices containing electronic medical records, personal health information or personal privacy information.

  • At times whitelisting the applications creates a problem, now it has been improved more.
  • No editable option once the data saved.
  • License issue has been occurred initially. Even though license was there, we couldn't use it properly. Slow it recovered.

I have only used Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS). It was recommended by my Dell sales rep. After reviewing the product info, and loading a demo, it became clear that this is what was needed to add to our existing security to protect us from information loss due to a data breach on our portable devices. I presented this solution to the appropriate departments, and they agreed that this was something well worth the investment.

As I said, we can do the task in bulk which is the added advantage in this. At times alerts gets triggered in multiple like 1000 plus. We can't do it manually as it kills time. But by using this, we can do it on bulk within hours. So likewise, we also did in the same way. We can pull reports also from this (excel files). We showcased to clients wherein we got the appreciation also. Really liked. Thanks team!
