Absolute Software Acquires Data Security and Data Loss Prevention Assets from Palisade Systems

By: Absolute Editorial Team | 6/25/2013

Today Absolute Software announced it has acquired the assets of privately-held Palisade Systems, a data security and data loss prevention (DLP) provider.

The Palisade technology delivers enterprise data security solutions for web monitoring and filtering, data monitoring and DLP, based on Palisade’s patented PacketSure Data Security Platform. Palisade Systems solutions enable healthcare, corporate, government and education organizations to monitor and secure sensitive and proprietary intellectual property, and to prevent it from leaving company networks and endpoints; define and enforce access to external network resources; and enforce compliance with federal privacy and industry security regulations.

“Our customers have been requesting that we add this type of endpoint DLP capability to Computrace, our endpoint GRC offering. The technologies are complementary. We can now provide our customers with an expanded GRC offering that allows them to not only remotely invoke security commands to prevent and mitigate data breach scenarios, including data delete, data retrieval and device freeze, but also to now proactively monitor and manage data at risk on the endpoint,” said John Livingston, CEO at Absolute Software. “We welcome the Palisade Systems’ team to the Absolute family. Their expertise will add significant value and allow us to continue our impressive growth within the endpoint security space with an expanded GRC solution.”
