Absolute Software Expands Mobile Content Management Capabilities to Android

Now IT Managers Can Securely Distribute and Manage Documents and Media Files to Android Tablets with AbsoluteSafe

VANCOUVER, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Absolute® Software Corporation ("Absolute" or the "Company") (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management solutions for computers, laptops and ultra-portable devices announced today Android tablet support for AbsoluteSafe with the launch of Absolute Manage 6.1.5.

AbsoluteSafe is a Mobile Content Management (MCM) application available with Absolute Manage that allows organizations to securely distribute and manage content to mobile devices, eliminating the security risks associated with traditional document sharing apps and email. Now, AbsoluteSafe support is extended to Android tablets providing feature parity with the existing iOS version.

"AbsoluteSafe for Android and iOS devices allows our customers to control how and when users connect with sensitive corporate data, a key component of secure data management," states John Livingston, Chairman and CEO at Absolute Software. "With this complete control, organizations can securely share files on corporate and employee-owned devices."

Along with policy-based secure media transfer, IT administrators can restrict the files from being emailed, printed, or moved outside of AbsoluteSafe. And files in AbsoluteSafe can be password protected, providing an additional layer of security for organizations when distributing content to ultra-portable devices. For sensitive corporate content, access can be set with a specific expiry time so documents are automatically removed from the device regardless if it is on or off the network.  And for greater operational efficiency, the administrative work required to deposit documents into AbsoluteSafe can be transferred to non-IT employees that have been granted the appropriate permissions.

Most importantly, if a device is at risk - Absolute Manage will automatically remove it from management and the AbsoluteSafe app will be removed, preventing unauthorized access to any sensitive corporate content it may contain.

Availability

Absolute Manage 6.1.5 is available today.  For more information about AbsoluteSafe read the datasheet: http://www.absolute.com/shared/datasheets/abt-as-ds-e.pdf
