What's New?

Visually compare historical web usage trends across multiple web pages or web tools

Visually compare average weekly web usage trends of multiple web pages and tools across your user base through customized historical graphs by selecting specific websites or tools of interest. Leverage this information to monitor the migration from one web tool to another, compare usage of certified and uncertified web content and identify web tools that are in demand and should potentially be certified.

Web Usage (Last 7 Days)

Configure daytime hours (or “core” hours) to align with your business or school operations to ensure reported web usage telemetry is tailored to your specific needs. Compare usage of web content during core hours versus off-core hours or during different operating shifts.

Enable autonomous health monitoring and healing of modern endpoint security and VPN apps

Support for FortiClient® VPN and Cisco® Secure Endpoint (AMP for Endpoints)
Absolute now reports on the health of both FortiClient VPN and Cisco Secure Endpoint and automatically remediates them whenever required, to ensure they are always running in a healthy state with zero human intervention. Application Persistence saves time and ensures your remote employees always access corporate resource securely and strengthen your security posture.

Support for newer version of ESET® Endpoint Antivirus
Application Persistence now also supports the new version of ESET Endpoint Antivirus (v7.0), so you can ensure your entire fleet is always protected with the latest security policies.

Identify and respond to security risks through customized rules

Create custom rules based on multiple events to swiftly identify and be alerted to unusual user and device activity. Choose from a wide selection of IT and Security based endpoint events including, but not limited to, IP address changes, removal of device hardware, OS being reimage and the disabling of mission critical apps such as Anti-Malware or Encryption. The Custom Rule Builder feature leverages Absolute’s unparalleled, source of truth telemetry captured from your endpoints, ensuring you’re alerted and able to respond to a variety of potential security risks.

IP Changed & Disk Removed

View historical events related to the Device Freeze action from the History section of the Absolute console. This feature is particularly helpful for proving during internal or external audits that Device Freeze requests were initiated and completed swiftly once security risks were identified by IT or Security teams.
