What is Absolute Persistence?

Absolute's Persistence® is a patented security solution that provides a continuous, tamper-proof connection between devices, data, and the cloud-based Absolute console.

Through our partnerships with device manufacturers such as Dell, HP, Lenovo and others, Persistence is embedded in the firmware of computers, tablets, and smartphones at the factory, remaining dormant until the Absolute agent is installed. Installation initiates a call to the Absolute Monitoring Center, and Persistence is activated.

Once activated, the status of the Absolute agent or any third-party applications is continuously monitored and, if it is missing or damaged, a reinstallation will automatically occur. Persistence will survive attempts to disable it, even if the device is re-imaged, the hard drive is replaced, or the firmware is flashed.

What is Application Persistence?

Application Persistence is a feature of Absolute Resilience that provides embedded, self-healing capabilities to third-party endpoint controls, such as VPN, anti-virus, encryption, systems management, and other critical applications.

Virtually any app can be automatically reinstalled, regularly checked for version control & integrity, and IT teams alerted the moment anything abnormal occurs.

Application Persistence works with devices on or off your corporate network, and, as Persistence technology is embedded at the factory, it can’t be compromised.
