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.

I mainly use it to access my office emails. It gets easy when you can get to see the updates via email on the go no matter where you are. It can not only keep us update with the latest information but also it is good to have this tool handy to access information that is needed on the go. I would definitely recommend this tool to my friends as it's one of the good tools to have on your phone.

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

  • The admin UI is still not very user friendly, even with the updates that have taken place.

If given a choice, I would like to access office emails directly using Microsoft Exchange. Entering login passwords every five minutes seems painful and syncing of emails is not done in real time.

Very simple to install. I would give it a 10 if the admin UI was easier to navigate.

I haven't talked to support besides trying to locate documentation and based on that experience, I give this score.

If you have a serious issue with your on-premise installation, access to support can take a bit to get someone on the phone, and it can take some time to rectify, given the complexity of the software. In my experience, the support team does get you back up and running in critical scenarios, but you more than likely will be on some marathon calls, unless it is a very simple and known issue.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Return on Investment

Absolute

  • Recovery of stolen assets.
  • After recovering a few devices and students becoming aware of Absolute being deployed, it had a prevention effect deterring additional theft.
  • It deterred pawn shops from accepting our stolen machines.
