The Silicon Review
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.
Its 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.
How Absolute Does Business
Control is the bedrock of confidence. Absolute’s ability to give its customers self-healing endpoint security and complete visibility of their devices, data, users, and applications is the ultimate level of control and confidence for the modern enterprise.
Absolute Persistence is its unfair advantage. It 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 its 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 support its customers and conduct business.
“We make your entire enterprise stronger by building self-healing remediation technology throughout the greater security ecosystem. We are committed to advancing the state of endpoint security with Persistence as the foundation,” says Steve Munford, Interim CEO of Absolute.
The Absolute Platform
Visibility You Can Act On: Dark endpoints are breeding grounds for data breaches. Absolute introduces the new standard for endpoint visibility and control, already embedded in over 1 Billion endpoints for the always-connected visibility, insight and real-time remediation capabilities to stop breaches at the source.
Manage and Secure Every Endpoint, Everywhere: Absolute gives you the power to see, manage and secure every endpoint, everywhere. That’s because only Absolute is always-connected to every endpoint, unlike traditional endpoint security solutions that are constrained by network dependencies and contingent upon healthy endpoint agents. With Absolute, no endpoint device will ever go dark giving enterprises highly-assured IT asset management, self-healing endpoint security, and data visibility and protection.
Persistence Technology: Absolute leverages Persistence technology, already embedded in the firmware of over a billion popular endpoint devices, to deliver always-connected visibility and control with an efficient tether to every device, on and off the network.
“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.”
“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.”
