Absolute Data & Device Security (DDS), formerly Absolute Computrace, is an adaptive endpoint security solution. It provides you with a persistent connection to all of your endpoints and the data they contain.
With Absolute DDS, it’s all about the connection. By maintaining a two-way connection with each device, you have the insight you need to assess risk and apply remote security measures so you can protect each endpoint and the sensitive data it contains.
This valuable insight is delivered through a cloud-based console that requires no additional IT infrastructure.
Identify risk conditions and receive a notification if these conditions occur. Key security data integrates automatically with SIEM solutions. Validate the status of complementary security applications such as encryption, anti-malware, and SCCM. Use these reports to prove to auditors that security measures were properly implemented and in place at the time of a security incident.
Collect incredibly accurate information from each device, including historical data. Determine what’s installed on a device. Identify events and activities that could be precursors to a security incident including changes to IP address, location, and user; non-compliant software/ hardware installations; and many more. Receive a notification if these activities occur.
Remotely recover or delete data. Set policies to ensure offline devices are automatically protected. Freeze a device and communicate with the user to verify status. Produce an audit log to prove data on a compromised device was properly secured, not accessed, and safely deleted. Use certified data delete workflows to decommission a device.
Track assets on a Google Map™, including recent and historical locations. Create geofences based on corporate policies. Investigate devices that are out of bounds or entering an unauthorized location.
Leverage the Absolute Investigations team to determine the cause of an endpoint security incident. Identify and eliminate insider threats. Refine best practices so the same incident does not reoccur. Determine if data was accessed during an incident, and whether or not a data breach notification is required. Recover stolen devices.
Asset management without realtime capabilities is worth very little. So, I would rank the ability to reach out and manage devices regardless of their physical location with Absolute as a ‘must have’. The role of Absolute is critical in two specific ways: it provides validation to our internal asset management platform and extends access to our computer population when we find them outside of our control.

Absolute offers so many tools we find very valuable. We can now see which software is loaded on a machine to determine if we’re maxing out or underutilizing software licenses. We’ve been able to transfer unused software licenses to users who need them, saving the office or division from buying additional licenses; allowing those monies to be used on other expenditures.
