See What Others Cannot See, Secure What Others Cannot Secure: Absolute

thesiliconreview-geoff-haydon-ceo-absolute-17“We make your entire enterprise stronger by building self-healing remediation technology throughout the greater security ecosystem.”

Dark endpoints — devices that are off the network, lost, stolen or operating without effective security controls — are breeding grounds for security breaches. Fractured visibility across layers of devices, applications, data, and users presents far too many opportunities for attackers and even insiders to perpetrate devastating breaches.

You’ve probably resigned yourself to the fact that you’ve been infiltrated by an unknown adversary. You simply cannot stop determined adversaries or negligent employees all the time. Accepting this reality means that, you have to be faster at detecting and responding to breaches to avoid becoming the next embarrassing headline.

Absolute set the new standard for endpoint visibility and control with self-healing endpoint security and always-connected IT asset management to protect devices, data, applications, and users — on and off the network. Bridging the gap between security and IT operations, only Absolute gives enterprises visibility they can act on to protect every endpoint, remediate vulnerabilities, and ensure compliance in the face of insider and external threats. Absolute’s patented Persistence technology is already embedded in the firmware of more than one billion PC and mobile devices and trusted by over 15,000 customers worldwide.

Absolute: Always There, Already There

Absolute is the first and only company to offer uncompromised visibility and near real-time remediation of security breaches at the source. Embedded in more than a billion devices, its Absolute Persistence self-healing endpoint security technology gives IT pros complete control over devices and data. No other technology has the power to withstand user error or malicious attacks, and return devices to an original state of safety and efficacy.

The company’s cloud-based platform gives IT and security professionals absolute awareness and control of devices, data and applications — whether on or off the network or in the hands of an unauthorized user. With Absolute, you can enhance IT asset management, protect sensitive data, reduce insider threats, and ensure compliance.

Absolute: “Absolute Persistence is our unfair advantage.”

Absolute Persistence gives any endpoint agent the ability to withstand user error or malicious attacks, and return to their original safe and effective state. This toughness and resolve are woven throughout all aspects of Absolute’s business. Absolute solutions also have zero impact on users, yet dramatically improve business productivity and security. This frictionless approach also extends to the way Absolute supports its customers and conduct business. The company is committed to advancing the state of endpoint security with Persistence as the foundation.

Absolute’s cloud-based console is always available for visibility and near real-time remediation of devices, applications, data and users, thanks to a two-way connection with Absolute’s self-healing embedded Persistence technology. You get the awareness to understand, quantify, and manage your risks for absolute control — on or off the network. The firm delivers better clarity and gives you better context into your security posture for uncompromised visibility — and the power to remediate endpoint controls and security breaches in near real-time. This “unfair advantage” also extends to third-party endpoint controls, making your entire security stack better prepared and more resilient to attacks.

Absolute’s partners include the biggest technology companies in the world, and its technology makes self-healing endpoint security a reality for businesses, educational institutions, and healthcare facilities.

Clientele Testimonies

“We were able to provide the board with quantitative information about device utilization that drives consensus so the budget could be approved, and also peace of mind with security, privacy, and theft recovery.”

- Dr. Rich Contartesi, CIO, Loudoun County Public Schools

“Once deployed across EMEA, many of our mobile devices may never return to head office so Absolute is very important because they allow us to keep track of hardware anywhere in the world. Also, we don’t have to spend so much time helping users set up their devices. It has taken away a lot of the work we used to do producing information and reports for the business.”

- Tony O’Connor, Technical Support Agent, Network Operations, Premiere Global Services, Inc.

“Absolute seamlessly developed, tested and deployed Application Persistence to an application that is critical to our business. Their ability to constantly update and innovate adds, even more, value to the Absolute DDS offering. What differentiates this team is its service mentality- that can, will, and want to win attitude.”

- Jeff Reinsfelder, Infrastructure Distribution Manager, Allegis Group
