Absolute Software to Use Google Maps Geolocation API to Track Devices

Absolute® Software Corporation has announced that it will extend its products to use Google Maps to provide improved device geolocation tracking in its Absolute Computrace product. This partnership will provide Absolute customers with improved global coverage and more accurate geolocations.
The location of a device is an important factor in assessing the risk of a data loss event and measuring compliance with corporate policies. The accuracy of the geolocation data presented in Absolute’s products is critical to its customers. Using Google Maps technology allows customers to track devices and be alerted of risks with the highest accuracy.
The geolocation capabilities of Absolute Computrace include recent and historical location information for a device, as well as the ability to build geofences to contain devices within a specific geographical area. If a device goes beyond the bounds of a geofence, IT is alerted so they can investigate and determine if the device and the data on it is at risk.
