Today most organizations manage a variety of ultra-portable devices. Often employees will bring their own devices to work, or they'll request a specific model from IT. With so many different form factors and operating systems, how do you intend to manage and secure these devices and the corporate data they contain?
Welcome to the simple life. Absolute Manage Mobile Device Management (Absolute Manage MDM) allows you to remotely manage the Android and Apple devices in your deployment. Now you can wirelessly (over 3G or Wi-Fi) configure, query, and even wipe or lock managed devices.
Leverage the cross-platform capabilities of Absolute Manage: IT administrators can do their work from a Mac or a PC. There's no need to invest in additional hardware since the Absolute Manage console and server can install on a pre-existing Windows or Mac environment. Manage PC, Mac, Android, and iOS devices within a single console!
Absolute Manage MDM is available as a stand-alone product or as a component of Absolute Manage. Features include:
Track installed applications on all of the mobile devices in your deployment. Build device records using custom data fields that support the unique requirements of the business. Apps by Absolute provide you with a variety of apps so you can geographically track devices and perform security and administrative taks from an iPad; manage in-house apps; and apply strict security controls for the sharing of files and media - including a complete lock down of print, email, and other media sharing options.

Security, Change & Configuration Management
Set longer, more complex passwords for enterprise level security. Lock a device, clear a password, and wipe a device clean to factory settings (without an Exchange or MobileMe account). Manage and deploy profiles to configure email, restrict applications, set up VPN, disable the camera, and deploy web clips. Use policy-locked configuration profiles to stop non-compliant devices (jailbroken, blacklisted apps installed) from accessing company email and networks. Schedule policies so users have a defined window of time to access secured documents and corporate networks. Send customized messages and communicate with the end user wirelessly.
Gather over 67 hardware and software information items including device serial numbers, Mac addresses, installed applications, telephone numbers, and more. Integrate your mobile device data with third party applications such as Microsoft SCCM.
