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.

I would recommend this program ideally more for larger organizations, but that is not to say you couldn't use it for personal use. I think it's ideal for an organization because of all the features it has in one program. It provides all the protection you'd need in a corporation, especially for ones dealing with sensitive company/personal/financial information. Administrators are also able to set specific settings for users so the company can tailor security restrictions as needed

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.

McAfee Complete Data Protection

  • I wish it would give better reasoning why some sites or downloads are blocked, this can be frustrating to have happen if what you are trying to download is from someone/thing you know is a trusted source
  • Sometimes the program messes up the formatting of some webpages I'm trying to visit
  • Drive encryption can be a bit slow to load at times

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.
