Likelihood to Recommend

Absolute

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.

Google Endpoint Management

Google Endpoint securely manages data, more so the sensitive one, by developing passwords that are strong and complex. Further, Google Endpoint remotely updates or installs software and other details. For purposes of synchronization, Google Endpoint is adequately available and helpful. Lastly, has a utility management scope, and the deployment process is simplistic.

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

Absolute

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.

Google Endpoint Management

Google Endpoint has a remote control, which simplifies tasks, and it's not a must for a person to install the software on the required device. Also, Google Endpoint has a free version, and the monthly subscription amount is small. The training and installation process are all fair, effective, and effortless

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.
