Absolute Software Expands Managed Preference Settings to Mac OS X
Absolute Manage 6.3 Now Supports Mac OS X Profile Management
VANCOUVER, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Absolute® Software Corporation (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and
management solutions for computers, laptops and ultra-portable devices
today announced the release of Absolute Manage® 6.3 with a variety of Mac enhancements.
With this latest release, customers will be able to manage both OS X
Profiles as well as MCX (Managed Preference) settings on older Mac OS X
computers. This will expand the profile-based management and
configuration within Absolute Manage from mobile devices to Mac
computers. In addition to creating profiles using Absolute Manage’s
native profile editor, IT administrators will be able to import and
modify OS X configuration profiles they may have already created
outside of Absolute Manage.
Absolute Manage’s intelligent automation and proactive, policy-based
management easily identifies what type of configuration profiles are
supported, and automatically deploys them to individual computers or
groups of computers. Absolute Manage 6.3 also includes expanded support
for Samsung’s SAFE MDM functionality.
“Our customers rely on our technology to manage diverse enterprise
deployments that include a variety of operating systems and form
factors,” said Peter Frankl, Vice President, Lifecycle Management at
Absolute Software. “Absolute Manage 6.3 represents our delivery of
specific requests from our customers with deployments that include a
range of Mac OS X computers. These new features reinforce the
cross-platform capabilities of Absolute Manage, as well as our ability
to partner with our customers to build meaningful features.”
Absolute Manage 6.3 is available today. For more information, reference
