Absolute Software has launched Computrace Mobile for the BlackBerry.


The new solution delivers asset management, data protection and geolocation tracking for the BlackBerry smartphone. Once installed, it reports asset and location information every 30 minutes so IT administrators can detect hardware and software changes on the smartphone.


If a smartphone is lost or stolen, IT administrators can issue a data delete command that will permanently delete sensitive information. It also runs daily reports to see its locations using Google Maps within the secure Absolute Customer Centre.


John Livingston, president and CEO of Absolute Software, said: “Our customers have the competitive advantage of being able to manage their laptops, desktops and smartphones from a single portal, helping to reduce operational costs and losses due to theft and inefficient allocation.”
