VANCOUVER, Feb. 3 /CNW/ -- Absolute(R) Software Corporation ("Absolute" or the "Company") (TSX: ABT), the leading provider of firmware-based, patented, computer theft recovery, data protection and secure IT asset management solutions announced today that the University of Texas has selected Absolute Manage for deployment on all their Mac(R) computers.
"As the number of Mac systems at the university grew, we found that our organization (the central IT department for the University of Texas at Austin) needed a more scalable and reliable systems management solution that could accurately inventory and manage our Mac systems," said Cam Beasley, Chief Information Security Officer for the University of Texas at Austin. "After evaluating several solutions, we were impressed with the asset inventory, software distribution, disk imaging, and scaling capabilities of Absolute Manage that are essential for better accountability and maintaining a healthy and secure computing environment in a federated environment like ours."
Absolute Manage is the computer lifecycle management solution from Absolute Software that gives organizations an easy and automated way to manage PC and Mac(R) computers, as well as iPhone(R) devices, from a single interface. IT administrators using Absolute Manage can efficiently manage all their assets by automating time-consuming IT processes such as software distribution, patch management, asset inventory and disk imaging. Additionally, it helps organizations save money by allowing them to track installed applications and licenses, redeploy under-used licenses and hardware to maximize inventory, and avoid non-compliance fines.
"The University of Texas has always been a leader in technology and has set the standard in how best to take advantage of technology for their staff and students," said John Sarantakes, vice president of North American Sales at Absolute Software. "And now that they have chosen Absolute Manage, they can demonstrate better accountability for their resources, save time and money managing their computers and use those resources in other areas that improve learning outcomes across the university."
