    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.

    We run a large environment where managing agents and clients would be difficult, but this software doesn't require either. We use it a lot from our iPhones accessing the software from anywhere in the office and even from home.

    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.

    • Network discovery--with no agents to manage is great and its very fast
    • Reporting--custom reports, charts and PDFs; the software also emails monthly reports automatically
    • Users only see the data and menus they need, so no training needed and the UI is focused
    • No clients to install; we can use it from any browser and from our cell phones
    • Upgrades are done quickly; we've never needed to get involved, as they do it for us

    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.

      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.
