Highlights

Absolute Secure Access delivers capabilities that you typically only find in separate offerings that make up the modern Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) or Security Service Edge paradigm (e.g., secure tunnel, ZTNA, SWG, CASB, DEM):

Make your remote access solution resilient to external factors, leveraging a self-healing Secure Access client for Windows

Quickly and easily expand access to networks, the Internet, cloud services, and private applications without interfering with your employees’ ability to do their jobs

Make applications invisible to unauthorized users, which reduces the attack surface

Conduct real-time risk assessments as well as threat detection and prevention

Assure a secure browsing experience for all – desk, mobile, or hybrid users

Improve helpdesk effectiveness by proactively diagnosing and correcting poorly performing networks

An optimized tunnel to stabilize and improve connectivity

Reliable and resilient remote access

  • Assure reliable network application access for end users even in the most turbulent network conditions by leveraging patented tunnel and network session resilience.
  • Optimize audio and video for end users, delivering positive employee experiences and increased productivity.
  • Enforce security policy directly on the mobile endpoints, which prevents any chokepoints, bottlenecks, or unnecessary data backhaul.

Embrace a Zero Trust approach

Security without sacrificing productivity

  • Shield SaaS, on-prem, or private cloud resources from intruders and attacks.
  • Leverage dynamic, contextual access policies to any online destination, with or without use of a secure tunnel.
  • Verify that third-party security products are updated and enabled before granting connections.
  • Automatically block phishing and smishing attacks by preventing access to servers or Internet sites that pose a security risk.
  • Allow complete remote access control, inside and outside the firewall.

Deliver a secure browsing experience for all – desk, mobile, or hybrid workers

Protect against online security threats and infections

  • Defend against viruses, malware, malicious code, zero-day threats, as well as data loss or leakage.
  • Safely inspect, scrub, and inoculate Web content in a cloud container before delivering it safely to the end user’s Web browser.
  • Scan for the presence of malware, including worms, Trojan horses, and spyware.
  • Block malware (including zero-day threats) from reaching endpoints and networks by rendering websites in isolated containers located on remote servers far from the endpoint.
  • Disarm and reconstruct content from file downloads.
  • Prevent inadvertent uploads of sensitive information to maintain compliance, protect intellectual property, and reduce overall risk exposure.

Govern cloud usage across devices and cloud applications

Unlock the power of the cloud

  • Control access to SaaS applications based on risk, including contextual factors like time of day, user, device security posture, geolocation, network connection, etc.
  • Prevent malicious and accidental data leakage across cloud-based resources.
  • Stop the spread of threats such as ransomware across cloud and user endpoints.

Make counting on your networked world possible

Assure continued service delivery

  • Automatically restore unhealthy network connections and applications, coupled with increased visibility into network health and security posture.
  • Actively improve the end user experience – boost and streamline worker productivity and efficiency.
  • Gain complete visibility to remote and mobile workers, with the deepest analytics available for enterprise mobility – even outside the corporate perimeter.
  • Identify and resolve failures and outages quickly, as well as enforce service SLAs.
  • Track effectiveness of ZTNA policy enforcement, allowing for immediate impact analysis and further fine-tuning of policies.

Secure Access FAQ

Absolute Secure Access is one of the company’s core product lines, which was added through the acquisition of NetMotion in July 2021. The product portfolio provides resilient network connectivity for users to securely access critical resources in the public cloud, private data centers, and on-premises. These products allow users to transition from an optimized, secure tunnel to a resilient Zero Trust approach, without impairing productivity or admin controls.

Absolute Secure Access encompasses three products:

  • Absolute Core provides security and confidentiality for data in motion by means of encryption and access controls. It also offers benefits to the end user, such as making tunnel and network sessions resilient and optimizing streaming video and audio.
  • Absolute Edge provides a software-defined perimeter via Zero Trust Network Access, creating a context-based, logical access boundary around an application or set of applications – wherever they're hosted. It shields applications from the Internet, making them invisible to unauthorized users. Access policies are enforced at the endpoint, avoiding latency and any data transgression.
  • Absolute Insights for Network™ offers diagnostic and experience monitoring capabilities across endpoints and network, allowing organizations to proactively monitor, investigate, and remediate end user performance issues quickly and at scale, even on networks that are not company-owned or managed.

Absolute Secure Access packages are offered in two flavors, Absolute Core™ and Absolute Edge™ (formerly called Complete) with the included products as outlined below. Regional variations might be available.

  • Absolute Core
    • Secure, optimized tunnel
    • Policy enforcement
    • Network Access Control (NAC)
  • Absolute Edge
    • Includes Absolute Core
    • Absolute ZTNA
    • Absolute Insights for Network

For Absolute Edge customers, Absolute offers the Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service (powered by Ericom) add-on module that tightly integrates with the extensive policy capabilities in Absolute Secure Access. It strengthens an organization’s security posture while improving end user experience.

Customers can easily upgrade their subscription between Absolute Core and Absolute Edge. Capabilities are additive and enabled via a software license key.

The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service is an add-on module that tightly integrates with the extensive policy capabilities in Absolute Secure Access, strengthening your organization’s security posture while improving your end user experience. It preserves a natural browsing experience for mobile, deskless, remote, and hybrid workers while defending organizations from viruses, malware, malicious code, zero-day threats, and data loss or leakage. It safely inspects, scrubs, and inoculates Web content in a cloud container before delivering it safely to the user’s Web browser. The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service extends the same level of protection normally only associated with office or hybrid workers to mobile, deskless, and field workers.

The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service is available for free trial and purchase as an add-on module to Absolute Edge on-prem or SaaS.

Absolute Secure Access supports Apple® iPad and iPhone devices (iOS 11 and later), Apple MacOS (10.13 and later), Android devices (running on Android 5.0 or later), Android for Work, Samsung KNOX, Windows Pro Tablets, laptops, and other devices running Windows 8, 10, and 11.
