School districts are flocking to Chromebooks as their technological tool for students in K-12. Unfortunately, their popularity means they often get stolen and until now, school districts have not had a solution for their recovery.

Liminex Inc. announces the first and only Chromebook recovery solution, and integrates it as part of its Guardian EDU software. Guardian EDU delivers a powerful new anti-theft feature set, giving district IT administrators the ability to track the specific stolen device with comprehensive real time data, including not just precise geolocation, but also screenshots of every page visited, every key typed on the device, and pictures using the webcam.

With the information provided by Guardian EDU in hand, and with help from local authorities, school districts are already recovering stolen Chromebooks.

Prior to anti-theft, Guardian EDU became widely accepted for its ability to help school district IT Administrators monitor and guide student activity on these devices. The software allows admins to understand how Chromebooks are being used on all levels -- including broad usage trends, unique organizational units, and granular per-student browsing behavior. The Flagged Activity Engine intelligently analyzes the contents of pages as they load, combining an unparallelled level of insight and control with real-time alerts to let you know when inappropriate content is accessed by students. Guardian's BlackCat filtering engine provides CIPA-compliant category-based blacklisting that uses machine learning to dynamically expand as students visit new inappropriate websites. Admins can also customize BlackCat with specific domains. Combined with flagged activity tracking, BlackCat learns in ways traditional proxies and content filters cannot.

Liminex has now incorporated formidable anti-theft features into Guardian EDU at no additional cost, creating one comprehensive Chromebook management solution. For more info on Guardian EDU, please visit
