Absolute Software Provides Full BYOD Capabilities for Computers, Tablets, and Smartphones

Absolute® Software Corporation today announced full BYOD support for Mac and Windows computers. Absolute Manage® customers can now automate BYOD polices for employee-owned computers, along with tablets and smartphones, from one console.

Absolute Manage 6.5 will provide enrollment workflows as well as remote and automated security protocols for corporate and employee-owned devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops.

The integration between Absolute Manage and Cisco’s Identity Service Engine (ISE) provides an increased level of network security. If a computer or mobile device attempts to access the network, its compliance status is automatically checked against company policy.

With this release, Absolute Manage will support Samsung KNOX, a containerization solution native to Samsung’s hardware and Android OS. Samsung KNOX allows employees to move from personal to corporate information and apps while allowing IT to apply separate policies to the device’s personal space and workspace.
