An expanded partnership has been announced today between Absolute Software Corporation, the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and management solutions for computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, and rugged mobile computing specialists Getac.

The agreement will make Absolute’s Persistence solution available on Getac’s global range of rugged mobile devices, including its rugged notebooks and rugged tablets. Built to fit specific vertical needs, Getac solutions provide customers with features and specifications designed to deliver in-the-field performance.
