2023 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Endpoint Security Includes Automated Security Control Assessment (ASCA) on Innovation Trigger

VANCOUVER, British Columbia and SAN JOSE, Calif. – October 18, 2023 – Absolute Software™, the only provider of intelligent, self-healing security solutions, today announced that it has been recognized in the 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security1, as a Representative Vendor in the newly identified Automated Security Control Assessment (ASCA) category.

In the report, Gartner states, "This Hype Cycle illustrates the most relevant innovations in the endpoint security space to assist security leaders in planning adoption and implementation of emerging technologies." Gartner added, "The Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security tracks developments that help security executives defend their companies."

According to Gartner, ASCA is an emerging category included for the first time, in this year's report on the innovation trigger. In the report, analysts Evgeny Mirolyubov and Jeremy D'Hoinne observed, "Organizations implementing ASCA processes and technologies enhance staff efficiency, minimize the impact of human errors, and improve resilience in the face of organizational churn. ASCA reduces security control configuration gaps that unnecessarily expose the organization to otherwise preventable attacks."

"Organizations need solutions that not only defend their endpoints against an ever-expanding array of advanced attacks but also that explicitly increase their ability to minimize disruption and quickly recover following incidents," said John Herrema, Executive Vice President of Strategy, Absolute. "The data we collect from the millions of endpoints using our Application Resilience solution shows that security and management controls experience many millions of non-compliance incidents per year that, fortunately, we can both detect and automatically remediate. It is encouraging to see resilience validated as a critical capability and recognition of vendors delivering on that promise."

Absolute's Secure Endpoint product line includes Absolute Visibility,™ Absolute Control,™ Absolute Resilience,™ and Absolute Ransomware Response.™ Combined, we secure endpoints from threats and vulnerabilities, respond to security breaches and incidents, and enable the detection and automated mitigation needed to autonomously self-heal endpoints and applications.
