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.

It is well suited for compliance and information gathering/reports. You can query about literally anything in any given machine's environment. It is definitely well sure for very large corporations.

Pros

  • Absolute can track devices in real time. If a device is stolen, you can track it. You can lock the device, wipe it or send a message to it. By tracking the device, you can also locate the user that has the device if it is in their possession. You can use it to track your people if you choose, but we use it only to locate an employee if they have not been heard from and have not replied to a cell phone call or text.
  • Once Absolute is set up it requires no intervention. Setup is easy and the management interface is easy to use.
  • It has the ability to track on Google Map with recent and historical locations. Geofences can be setup and triggered to send email alerts.
  • Absolute reporting on the device provides OS information, software inventory, malware software reporting, etc.
  • It protects itself from being removed with its’ persistence technology, which keeps it from being removed from the device, even if the device is reformatted and reloaded.
  • The reporting capability on the devices provides a lot of information on each device that can be very useful in monitoring devices that are typically detached from the network.

  • Invanti’s remote management is seamless most of the time and helps us to resolve issues without the need of the customer to provide permission during each session on or offsite.
  • We have become heavily dependent on the bundled Kapersky AV. IT is easier to maintain than our previous client.
  • There is less of a burden on our client machines. Scans are very easy to schedule.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Configuration can be tedious and takes some time. Once you become familiar with the many aspects of the system it can go faster.
  • Setting up software deployment can be frustrating due to unknown system responses given. A better FAQ on return codes would be helpful.
  • Setting up automated patching is a long process.

Landesk Management Suite is an important part of our business. It's a useful tool that does what we need it to do on a daily basis. Landesk support is also improving which is nice to see. Overall the product continues to get better and I recommend it to anyone needing a package with such features.

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

  • I think that Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS) is well worth the investment to protect important data securely. Without it, a data breach could cost an astronomical amount of money and you many never be able to complete recover from it.
  • It also aids in recovery efforts for stolen devices and therefor reduces the financial cost of replacing the lost devices.
  • There is a free trial available that is well worth the time investment to see if Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS) might be a valuable tool to add to your existing security plans.

  • LANDesk had a positive impact on ROI based on the time that it removed from our provisioning tasks. Our environment previously took an entire day to deploy to bare metal. After setting up LANDesk we could deploy a new PC in a few hours.
  • Another positive impact was on Software Deployment. Instead of having to send an associate deskside we could push an application automatically to a PC based on pre-defined scenarios. The Self Service Application portal was also beneficial to provide updates that a user could install at their leisure.
