Absolute Computrace can Mitigate 80% of Breach Scenarios

By: Absolute Editorial Team | 4/18/2013

As many of you know, the endpoint represents a significant point of risk. Analysts agree that the top data breaches are due to device loss/theft or misuse by insiders. These data breaches, and other non-compliance events, severely impact a company's operations. Industry regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA increase the importance of governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) for the endpoint. By using Absolute Computrace, up to 80% of these breach scenarios can be mitigated, and regulations met.

Governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) is an umbrella term to describe an organization’s approach to these closely-related areas, reflecting how an integrated approach to all three can benefit an organization. Absolute Computrace allows IT administrators to remotely control and secure IT assets within a cloud-based interface – the Absolute Customer Center – where they can enforce compliance policies, identify computers that might be at risk, and take preemptive and reactive measures if a security incident occurs. Computrace also provides Investigations and Recovery services in the event of non-compliant or criminal activities.
