Absolute Accelerates Endpoint Resilience and Operational Agility for Customers in Era of Remote Work and Distance Learning

September 09, 2020

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — September 9, 2020 — Absolute® (ABT.TO), the leader in Endpoint Resilience™ solutions, today announced limited-time offers for customers to purchase critical add-on capabilities, including Absolute's Application Persistence™ service and Absolute Reach® portfolio, previously available only with the company’s top-tier Resilience edition. Absolute is also extending its previously announced COVID-19 related support offers, providing existing customers with the ability to self-heal existing virtual private network (VPN) applications and more seamlessly secure, manage, and patch remote devices at no additional cost through October 30, 2020.

Absolute’s Application Persistence service enables customers with the ability to self-heal more than 40 industry-leading security and productivity applications to ensure they remain healthy, active, and undeletable. Leveraging its unique firmware-embedded position, Absolute’s Persistence technology is able to identify if mission-critical controls are missing, disabled, or not working as intended and, if necessary, automatically prompt repairs or reinstallation. Absolute Reach, with a comprehensive library of more than 130 automated, custom workflows, allows IT and Security teams to easily run queries or reports and then take widespread remedial action – such as enforcing patch installations, or turning on or repairing VPN applications, which can be executed even if a device is off the corporate network. This is the first time Absolute has made these capabilities available to customers as standalone add-ons to their current product offering.

A recent survey of IT decision-makers by 451 Research found that 67 percent of respondents expect that their work-from-home policies will become permanent, or at least remain in place for the long term. By providing more flexible access to key Resilience features, Absolute is equipping many more customers to adapt to continuously changing conditions and securely mobilize employees, students, and devices as needed, amid the ongoing COVID-19 impacts.

“With little clarity on what the future of work and school will look like, organizations are in dire need of tools that can enable them to be more agile and responsive without compromising security, productivity, or continuity,” said Christy Wyatt, President and CEO of Absolute. “The strong response to our previous COVID offering has shown there is significant demand for capabilities like unbreakable visibility and self-healing controls that our true Endpoint Resilience solution can provide. With these new product offers, we’re making it easier than ever for Absolute customers to access critical capabilities that enable a seamless transition between remote, hybrid, and in-person environments while maintaining full visibility and security.”

Absolute’s Remote Work and Distance Learning Insights Center provides enterprise and education organizations with regularly updated data and resources to benchmark the resilience of their remote device environments against more than nine million Absolute-enabled endpoints. In the most recent findings, Absolute’s anonymized endpoint data showed the average delay for deploying the latest patches to Windows 10 enterprise devices was more than two months (79 days), and nearly one in four enterprise devices (24 percent) had a VPN considered to be out of compliance. Looking specifically at enterprise customers with Absolute’s Application Persistence service turned on, the percentage of devices with a healthy and compliant VPN jumped to 96 percent during the same time period.
