Locking down the work place.

Absolute Software has announced the launch of the next version of Absolute Manage to allow the detection of jailbroken devices that are being used in the workplace.

According to the company, Absolute Manage 5.4 allows IT administrators to locate a lost or stolen device on an internet map, while users can authenticate themselves using Active Directory.

Absolute Software also said that using Absolute Manage 5.4, IT administrators can manage all their assets by automating time-consuming IT processes such as software distribution, patch management, asset inventory and imaging for both their Macs and PCs from a single console.

“The continued growth in adoption of Apple iOS4 devices is driven both by employees wanting to use their preferred device to access the corporate network, and IT departments sanctioning the use of non-PC devices," said Peter Frankl, vice president of lifecycle management at Absolute Software.

“The growing challenge for IT administrators is to establish effective security and management solutions at the endpoint, while avoiding major disruptions to established server and network architectures. With the release of Absolute Manage 5.4, our customers have even more flexibility in managing their iOS4 deployments, while maintaining enterprise-calibre security, in either a Windows or Mac network and server environment.”
