Absolute Software Corporation, a provider of endpoint security and management solutions for ultra-portable devices, computers and laptops, is now offering Android tablet support for its AbsoluteSafe, with the launch of Absolute Manage 6.1.5.
The mobile content management application, already available for iOS, allows organizations to securely distribute and manage content to mobile devices, eliminating the security risks associated with traditional document sharing apps and email.
"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," said John Livingston, Chairman and CEO at Absolute Software. Livingston noted that with such control, organizations can securely share files on corporate and employee-owned devices.
Along with policy-based secure media transfer, IT administrators can restrict files from being emailed, printed, or moved outside of AbsoluteSafe. Files in the app can also 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. In addition, administrative work required to deposit documents can be assigned to non-IT employees who have been granted the appropriate permissions.
If a device is at risk Absolute Manage will automatically remove it as well as the AbsoluteSafe app, preventing unauthorized access to any sensitive corporate content it may contain.
