"Clean UI with many features and capabilities"

What do you like best?

I like the separation of software and hardware assets. It is easy to find a device you are looking for based on name, device model, user, etc. I also like the setting of multiple policies to multiple devices. Easier to maintain settings for different groups.

What do you dislike?

it took some getting used to on finding certain software assets. Software has so many names, versions, dates, that it can be difficult to track down a list of users you are looking for. Though this may be more on the software itself then the platform of Absolute.

Also locating the geotracking on a device. It is fairly hidden within the device properties and takes some time to find.

Would like to have a way to directly export data real time and import into PowerBI for other data analytics. Either through an API or some kind of online connection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Device encryption, software reporting, asset management (Used in conjunction with our own asset management tool)

"Absolute is the "last stand" in our IT security profile"

What do you like best?

There are lots of things but I think I like how it integrates with the BIOS to do it's thing most of all. Once installed, it is essentially and hands-off piece of software. And because it is at that low level it can do many things that similar software cannot. But I would be remiss if I didn't mention the ability to track and recover lost or stolen laptops. They also been making great strides in the past 1-2 years to make the software easier to use and still maintain all the functionality.

What do you dislike?

The newest version has a bug in it when it is in a Geo-location group it uses too much CPU. Also their licensing seems to be a bit chaotic. While I am sure the different products mean something to them, I don't necessarily know the difference. A clearer delineation of the different products would be helpful. tNot really a dislike, but a feature I would like to see is wizard of some sort that will remove any older PCs when they have reached EOL.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think they have made great progress in the last 1-2 years.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to recover lost/stolen PCs and/or delete any sensitive data that may be on them. Other benefits include making sure the laptops are secure, inventory management, and the ability to encrypt drives

What Endpoint Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great for visibility and control, but a bit difficult to control"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to lock machines remotely. This has been a huge boon considering the all remote nature of our workforce, and the tendency for machines to grow legs and walk away.

The Data Discovery piece is great as well, and the ability to see encryption status is useful.

What do you dislike?

The licensing is a bit confusing at times, and the portal could use some real work to become a lot more usable and user friendly. As it stands, that's my largest gripe overall.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to form a close relationship with your representative. We went a while with no contact to our reps (our own decision, not theirs) and it made us a lot less likely to make use of the product.

Once we began having discussions with our reps about our needs, they were able to push us in the right direction for each need we brought up - though some were behind further paywalls.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As stated above, we have a big issue with visibility and control with our machines being out in the wild away from home all of the time.

We have been able to check for PHI (a major concern), encryption, and even location of the units when needed. These are all great benefits to us as a whole.

"Compelling value statement"

What do you like best?

It is easy to deploy the client, it is easy to check statuses, and the alerts allow me to continue with my work knowing I will get notified if something is amiss.

What do you dislike?

The procedure to enable persistence the first time is a bit clunky. I don't know there's a lot Absolute can do about that, but it's a bit clunky.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Off-network contact and management of mobile endpoints - specifically laptops. We have been able to gather much more sophisticated inventory information for our devices in the field. We also now have the ability to lock/wipe/disable devices that go missing and verify they were encrypted. This provides immediate regulatory coverage.

"Endpoint Visibility & Reporting"

What do you like best?

The visibility into endpoints, persistence in case the operating system is wiped or reinstalled, and the ability to secure data in the event of loss or theft.

What do you dislike?

License management; UI is a combination of new features and legacy features

Recommendations to others considering the product

Deployment is simple if you have the ability to push software to Macs and PCs. Administration has a learning curve as it takes time to become familiar with all features and knowing where to find them. It is recommended that you read the administration guide thoroughly and take advantage of your deployment resources to get a full overview of what you can do. Understand your business case and use Absolute's resources to satisfy those before moving onto more advanced features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to respond when a devices is lost or stolen. We can also determine which endpoints have an disproportionate amount of sensitive data.

"Informative and very helpful, resolved my issue in a timely manner. Very knowledgeable!! "

What do you like best?

I love the new interface and that Mitchell reaches back out to ensure all issues are resolved in a timely manner . Communication is always open and our rep has made everything very easy.

What do you dislike?

The site can be a bit delayed at times. Specifically when you are updating a new host. We also really liked the asset replacement guarantee that is no longer an option for our company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Continue to improve the user interface and make it user friendly as it may possibly be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Asset tracking, in the event that a device is lost or stolen nice to know we have options.

"A great product"

What do you like best?

We enjoy the insight into our assets, lockout capability, and most of all the ability to remotely run scripts. Need to run a PowerShell script on all your machines, even those not dialing in to your VPN regularly? This product does that and it's awesome. It can be set to run either privileged or as the user, and we've found it very valuable when we need to get a change to remote laptops quickly. For small / medium business this fills a real gap.

The laptop tracking and lockout functionality is the longest and most well known feature of this product, and is why we originally purchased it. It would be worthwhile just for that.

What do you dislike?

Licensing control in the portal has had some confusing moments as they transitioned to new product lines and our seats somehow got divided across two different license types. Our rep was helpful in navigating us through this when it arose.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out their product if you haven't used it yet. You should be able to start with just a few seats, and is available direct or via resellers such as your hardware supplier. Hardware support for this product is built into almost every business laptop, and the management and lockout capabilities are great to have. It's simple to setup and in my opinion - a great value.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking and protecting our assets. We have recovered at least one laptop from a former employee refusing to send it back - as soon as laptop lockout occurred and laptop was not usable they changed their tune and cooperated promptly. Magically they located the device once they couldn't use it anymore...hmm :)

"Like this product"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to install. I am currently using a remote installation program as I have laptops all over and they come and go from the office, so being able to remotely install this product has been a blessing. I am currently using the command line switches and have not had any major issues.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how long it takes to get a hold of tech support. When I first started with Absolute, it was with LoJack. I did not understand the difference, however once I did find out it took a very long time to get the licenses transferred over from LoJack to Absolute. There was a lot of disconnects between myself and tech support as I do not think they had a full understanding of how to go about this task. Needless to say, we have been successfully migrated and everything (minus a few hiccups), things are going well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend Absolute to anyone looking at tracking laptops from a corporate level. However do not get Absolute confused with LoJack, which LoJack is their consumer product and Absolute is their corporate product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our need for this product stemmed from a couple of our laptops getting stolen and since most of our users travel the world, it seemed like the right solution for us. I am able to track the location of the laptop and really it is more a piece of mind knowing that if the laptop was to get lost, we have a greater chance of recovery.

"Piece of mind for a reasonable investment"

What do you like best?

The product works! Thanks to Absolute software we've recovered several lost laptops over the years and for those machines we were not able to recover, we successfully deleted the contents of the hard drive. Demonstrating this capability is critically important to government, financial, and other data-sensitive clients. The user interface is also intuitive and easy to navigate.

What do you dislike?

Can't say there's anything I dislike about the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To me it makes no sense to install the software and protect only some devices and not others; that is if the reasoning is to control costs or due to a perception that some devices are less likely to go missing than others. Don't go half-way, protect ALL your devices or protect none at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All employees have company issued laptops and about half are remote workers. Inevitably one or two laptops go missing a year. The software has allowed us to recover or delete the hard drives of unrecoverable laptops.

"Absolute Survey"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can have a place to manage all the mobile devices within our corporation from one interface.

What do you dislike?

I would have to say that my only real complaint would be the amount of time it sometimes takes to clear a license after unenrollilng a device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolute is a great product for managing mobile device needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mobile device management and the ability to have it repair our SCCM client on those devices.

"Excellent Product"

What do you like best?

The product is extremely useful, easy to deploy, and very reliable.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything I dislike about the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You really get great bang for your buck. It's a small investment to make and very easy to implement. You get protection for your devices and data against theft, but also a host of other features. The functionality is tremendous and the program leaves an incredibly small footprint on our devices.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In addition to providing ironclad security on all of our endpoints, Absolute has been incredibly helpful for inventory management, reporting on all aspects of our devices, and warning us when potentially confidential data may reside locally on an endpoint.

"A very useful tool for providing endpoint security."

What do you like best?

I'm able to track the hardware and determine the location by IP and find out who is logged into the computer. I can also find out details about the hardware for a particular system.

What do you dislike?

1. Remote installs using the msi and group policy are not working.

2. A laptop was lost and the location was found by Investigations & Recovery but it has not been recovered yet and case updates are not sent on a regular basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I know Mercury Insurance was looking at this product. I have friends in the industry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to wipe data in the event of loss. We can locate missing hardware within the company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This has been the best software we have found for tracking laptops out in the field.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to lock down laptops that people have tried to steal/not return and have them returned to us thus saving us money.

"Device Locator/Great Auditor"

What do you like best?

Allows me to keep track of all my devices and ensure they are within a certain geographic area and receive alerts automatically when they are outside of said area. Also allows me to track and recover devices should theft be suspected. Very useful!

What do you dislike?

Interface for the Absolute Console is a bit convoluted to use but overall, a minor issue.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the issue of keeping track of all our mobile devices. The benefits realized are being able to keep track of our mobile fleet even if they are reimaged so that we always have a pulse on them and a laptop can be recovered quickly and easily thanks to Computrace!

"Everything you need for computer tracking in a self managing program"

What do you like best?

The ability to track computers that might leave the campus is priceless. Easy to setup and manage borders that track computer movement means no more lost or stolen hardware.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes computers will report outside of the borders when they are not.

"Remote Control Done Right"

What do you like best?

The ability to inventory a system anywhere in the world without the need for a centralized domain.

And of course the ability to freeze systems :)

The ease and speed in which a system can be frozen makes this software irreplaceable to any organization with sensitive data.

What do you dislike?

Some machines seem to skip daily reporting when connection times are compared with data from LogMeIn. I've seen systems shown offline in Absolute console for days that are online and accessible in LogMeIn.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This product can offset it's own cost in so many ways it's a no brainer, buy it. No matter what business you do or how many people you have, buy it immediately.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data breach security, protecting HIPAA data in the event of loss or theft.

Enforcing compliance policies via policy settings.

"Accruent Review"

What do you like best?

The fact that the software was installed at the BIOS level, and would not be affected by a hard drive wipe or replacement. It was also nice that we could remotely wipe or freeze the device from intruders the next time it checked into the manager.

What do you dislike?

The price. For what we utilized of the product, it was a very large cost that was basically only for when a device was actually stolen or lost, which was maybe once a year.

We were only really using it for locking down a system in the event that it was lost or stolen.

"Absolute Resilience Review"

What do you like best?

Persistence, Software and hardware information, Reach PowerShell, Full Disk Encryption, AV and other security features.

What do you dislike?

Would like to have Python added to the Reach that now has PowerShell. This is on the road map it was stated in recent Reach product video so that is good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep focusing on Security features. For example, support of meeting NIST 800-171 and mapping to those requirements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Assets inventory and control both on and off the local network, Security audit and enforcement, Lost or stolen computer tracking, Freeze, etc Used for three years at a Healthcare IT company also and very pleased.

"Quality Service"

What do you like best?

Our representative answers our questions quickly. Also the ability to track and shut down a device if it is lost or stolen. We also like the fact we can limit accessibility to certain geographical areas.

What do you dislike?

The only complaint I have so far with service is the fact you can't preselect USA for example in the geofencing. Drawing the borders manually was slow and clunky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to add on with new pc purchases so configuration on the workstation is a minimum.

"Absolute"

What do you like best?

Absolute allows you to track where your devices are in real time. If you have remote sales reps, it helps to know where the device is, especially if it is stolen. You can also view all of the software on the device. You can lock it remotely, wipe it, or send a message to it.

What do you dislike?

The price points. It can get expensive to manage a fleet of computers

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider what you need it to do. Absolute offers lots of features, but it comes at a price.

The support I've received through Absolute has been excellent thus far. They have worked with me on ensuring I was in compliance with licenses and helped create policies within the portal to use. As well as creating reporting structures.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I had disliked was our portal logins getting disabled without our notice. To be fair, we were over provisioned on licenses, but that was resolved rather quickly.

When the Absolute portal is down and we do not get a heads up. Minor stuff that has been proposed to be a feature request.

Encryption reports are great, even though they have been inconsistent for Mac devices. Encryption report tells us percentage wise of devices encrypted for our company. Important initiative at the moment. Device tracking is useful as well. Data delete isn't so much useful as that would just be a second layer of protection after encryption. Device freeze is useful for when offboarded employees do not return their devices to us.

"Complete UI with Endpoint Data Discovery (DLP-Lite) and lots of capability."

What do you like best?

Endpoint Data Discovery is a DLP-Lite that tracks down credit card, social security, and password information on endpoints. Couple that with selective file delete and a little user warning and you have a way to decrease risk of information release on specific endpoints at greater risk.

Training is easily available within the UI.

What do you dislike?

Moving systems between policies is a bit cumbersome. You have to remove and re-add. It would be better if you could flag assets and move them with a single move command.

"Solid product"

What do you like best?

The agent is persistent, once it is installed it is not coming off. Has some nice features for remote wiping data.

What do you dislike?

Alerts should include more device information (like IP info), I get the alert and then have to get on the portal to follow up and see what actually happened. Devices don't check in often enough. Web interface can be difficult to navigate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking our tablet devices for major changes or use outside of our secure networks. Works very well and relieves a lot of fear about device theft and recovery.

"Great inventory and application persistence tool"

What do you like best?

I like how Absolute can keep track of your devices and the how it can self heal the Absolute client and other applications with application persistence.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the process in moving a disabled device to inactive state so the device can grab a license. If we can do that within the console ourselves, that would be great.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of devices that have falling off the network, especially when the SCCM or JAMF client has stopped working.

Application persistence with the SCCM client.

"Exceptional service"

The quick response to any issues and spectacular training

Not much to dislike with them, they helped flip me over from a retail product to enterprise product seamlessly.

We have quite a few laptops in our company and due to FOIP rules we have to prove that all information is secure. With Absolute we can prove that if a laptop goes missing we can quickly disable and wipe it so the information is safe.
