What's New?

Configure Authorization Thresholds and a Secondary Approver for Device Actions

Certain device actions such as wiping a device, freezing a device, and running a script can be disruptive to an organization and so it’s important to ensure that they are not executed either by mistake or maliciously by a disgruntled employee or a threat actor. The new Dual Approver capability allows IT and security administrators to set authorization thresholds on the number of devices that can be included in device action requests before a secondary approver is required. Dual Approver is supported on the following device actions – Device Freeze, File Delete, Unenroll Device, Run Script, Send Message, and Cryptographic Wipe. The capability is available to customers subscribed to the Absolute Control and Absolute Resilience service tiers.
