Absolute Software Enables Customers to Identify and Address Potential Endpoint Security Risks with Additional Platform Enhancements
VANCOUVER, British Columbia and SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 6, 2021 –Absolute Software™ (NASDAQ: ABST) (TSX: ABST), a leader in Endpoint Resilience™ solutions, today announced additional platform enhancements, further enabling customers to swiftly pinpoint and respond to potential endpoint security risks across remote, distributed device fleets.
Anchored by its firmware-embedded position in more than half a billion endpoints, Absolute’s patented Persistence® technology enables an unbreakable two-way connection to devices, applications and data. Leveraging Absolute’s unparalleled visibility, IT and Security administrators can create custom rules to be alerted to a wide range of device or user-related events, such as IP address changes, removal of device hardware, or the disabling of security controls; take immediate action to freeze or wipe the device, and protect sensitive data; and capture the insights needed to demonstrate timely action was taken.
“The number of endpoint devices operating out of physical reach and off the corporate network has made it more challenging than ever for IT and Security admins to identify where their organization might be most vulnerable or exposed to risk,” said Ameer Karim, Executive VP of Product Management at Absolute. “These platform enhancements signal our ongoing commitment to delivering the visibility, intelligence, and self-healing capabilities our customers need to ensure devices and data remain protected, and critical applications stay healthy and resilient.”
Absolute also announced it is enabling customers to extend the power of Absolute’s persistent, self-healing connection to more mission-critical applications, recently adding support for Lenovo® Device Intelligence. Through Absolute’s Application Persistence™ service, joint customers can ensure Lenovo Device Intelligence remains active and resilient on every endpoint – and in turn, enable IT to continuously monitor device health and quickly resolve any potential device issues or failures before they materialize.
In addition to Lenovo Device Intelligence, Absolute Resilience™ customers have the ability to persist more than 40 leading security agents, including those from ESET®, Fortinet®, Netskope®, VMware®, and others.
