Absolute Software, a global leader in enterprise cyber resilience, today announced that GOAL High School, a statewide multi-district charter school, chose Absolute Cyber Resilience capabilities to gain visibility, apply security, and extend cyber resilience across its endpoint device fleet serving more than 6,000 hybrid and remote students.

GOAL is the largest high school in Colorado. It supplies devices to each of its students across the state every year. After previously using Chromebooks and making the switch to Microsoft Windows devices, the institution needed to find a solution that would allow it to track, manage, control, and freeze devices when necessary. After evaluating recommended vendors from its supplier, GOAL High School decided Absolute Secure Endpoint would be the best solution to meet this challenge.

“Modern education requires schools to provide compelling opportunities to students who need to learn across a hybrid model that relies on digital tools that span remote and on-site instruction. This new paradigm presents cybersecurity and compliance challenges that all education institutions need to address,” said Jamie Truillo, Chief Information Officer (CIO), GOAL High School. “We chose Absolute over competitors to provide us with the visibility, control, and resilience needed to not only protect our investment in thousands of distributed laptops, but also ensure the security and resilience needed to provide uninterrupted engagement for our students.”

In addition to security, compliance, and resilience benefits, Absolute provided GOAL High School with:

  • Reduction in device loss from 15% to 5%, with an overall 50% loss reduction
  • Tracking and locating for missing devices, on or off campus networks
  • Remote wipe and freeze capabilities for at-risk devices
  • Mission-critical applications behavior monitoring
  • Visibility across its entire device fleet

“Schools accelerated technology programs to support hybrid learning during the pandemic, but we have all seen news about how management challenges resulted in device loss rates of up to 30 percent,” said Warren Young, Vice President of Education, Absolute Software. “Schools using Absolute experience significantly improved device retention rates, which can result in millions of dollars' worth of recovered devices for districts.”
