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.

Trend Micro Mobile Security

If you and your employees use mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to do a lot of work-related tasks, having security software to keep sensitive data secure is very helpful and will greatly reduce the risk of a breach. It will also block calls to avoid getting spammed. It seems appropriate for any organization to protect their data, small or large.

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.

Trend Micro Mobile Security

  • The interface may take some time to get used to.
  • Scanning sometimes is really quick, which appears to be too fast to actually check everything.

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.

Trend Micro Mobile Security

They are both pretty good protection suites. Trend Micro has the upper hand in ease of use once you get used to the interface and features, as well as offering an attractive price model for small businesses. Trend Micro offers a secure way to remotely lock and wipe, or device locate in the case of a stolen or lost phone. It helps IT to keep an eye on devices to provide better security.

  • 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.
