Absolute Showcases Mobile Device Management and Security at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo

October 20, 2010

Absolute shows off anticipated iOS4 management, enhanced BlackBerry,
Symbian and Windows Mobile solution

ORLANDO, Fla. and VANCOUVER, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ – Absolute(R) Software
Corporation (“Absolute” or the “Company”) (TSX: ABT), the leading
provider of firmware-based, patented, computer theft recovery, data
protection and secure computer lifecycle management solutions,
announced today that it is showcasing the management and security of
popular mobile devices, including locating, locking and wiping Apple((R)) iOS4, BlackBerry((R)), Symbian and Windows((R)) Mobile devices, using its Computrace((R)) and Absolute Manage solutions during the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in
Orlando, Florida.

The consumerization of IT has seen popular mobile devices integrated
into the workday more than ever before. Absolute’s computer lifecycle
management solutions are purpose-built for IT administrators to track,
manage and protect mobile devices and PC and Mac((R)) computers from within a single intuitive management console accessible
from both PC and Mac environments. 

“We have been seeing organizations limiting the use and deployment of
popular consumer mobile devices because of data leakage concerns from
device loss and theft. One of our customers even passed on buying 2,000
iDevices because they could not effectively manage and secure them,”
said Bill Hunka, Area Vice President of Business Development at
Absolute. “But with our manage, locate, lock and wipe abilities,
customers can now feel confident in achieving the cost savings and
competitive advantages from allowing employees to leverage these
popular mobile devices. We will continue to add support for new device
platforms to ensure customers can seamlessly manage and secure their
expanding cross-platform environments.”

To show that IT administrators need not avoid popular mobile devices in
the workplace due to their inability to manage and secure them, experts
from Absolute are on hand at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo to showcase
Absolute Manage and Computrace. Highlights include:

Management and security of Apple iOS4 devices from within the comprehensive Absolute Manage computer
lifecycle configuration management suite. This solution can gather
hardware and software information, lock and wipe a device, manage and
deploy profiles, and deploy in-house applications.

Geofencing and data protection on BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile devices using the Computrace
tracking and recovery solution. Computrace allows organizations to
locate devices and expand their security perimeter to secure and manage
all of these devices.

Location details: Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, Florida. Booth 702.
