Absolute Empowers Customers to Extend Power of Self-Healing to More Mission-Critical Security Applications
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — May 5, 2020 —Absolute® (ABT.TO), the leader in Endpoint Resilience™, today announced it is enabling customers to self-heal even more of their mission-critical security controls, recently adding support for applications from Tanium and Citrix to ensure they remain healthy and virtually undeletable. Absolute’s Resilience Ecosystem now includes nearly 40 independent endpoint security agents and continues to expand based on customer demand.
The COVID-19 outbreak, and the resulting need to quickly send devices home and stand up remote work programs, have only magnified the endpoint complexities making organizations more vulnerable to potential data breaches and compliance violations. Early findings from Absolute’s upcoming 2020 State of Endpoint Resilience Report show the typical enterprise endpoint device has more than 10 distinct endpoint security agents running - all competing for the bandwidth and resources needed to function effectively and deliver their intended value.
“As companies of all sizes face continued pressure to ensure business continuity, productivity, and security, there has never been a more important time for organizations to have endpoint security that is both resilient and undeletable,” said Christy Wyatt, President and CEO of Absolute. “By delivering the capabilities needed to self-heal applications integral to mitigating risk and maintaining organizational security and employee productivity, we can minimize some of the burden IT and Security teams are currently shouldering - and allow them to focus on keeping their businesses running and taking care of their customers.”
Embedded in the firmware of more than 500 million devices, Absolute’s Persistence® technology - the foundation of its Resilience solution - enables a self-healing, unbreakable two-way connection to endpoints, applications and data. Absolute’s technology regularly checks the health of customers’ security applications to identify if they are missing or disabled, and then automatically repairs critical components or prompts reinstallation when necessary - without requiring human intervention.
In addition to Tanium and Citrix, Absolute’s Resilience Ecosystem now also includes support for updated versions of these leading VPNs: Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, F5 BIG-IP Edge Client, and Pulse Connect Secure. Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Absolute previously announced it is extending free access to Application Persistence for VPN to existing customers through August 31, 2020.
