Absolute expands its application resilience ecosystem
Fri, 10th Mar 2023

Absolute Software has announced the continued expansion of the Absolute Application Resilience ecosystem with the company’s latest product release. Joint customers can now leverage Absolute’s patented persistence technology, and unbreakable device connection, to strengthen the health and resiliency of more than 70 mission-critical security and business tools, including eClinicalWorks, Forescout SecureConnector, HCL BigFix, IMTLazarus, Pixart MDM, Plurilock CloudCodes, UNOWHY, and XM Cyber HaXM.

In today’s work-from-anywhere environments, the need for resilient security controls capable of protecting distributed devices and sensitive data has never been more critical. 

Absolute’s analysis has shown that non-resilient applications may be working effectively on less than 80% of the devices they’ve been installed on – in some cases, as low as 35% - while more than 95% of devices with Application Resilience capabilities enabled reported healthy security applications.

As a result of accelerating demand, Absolute has seen a 26% increase, year over year, in the number of customer devices leveraging Application Resilience to monitor app health and behaviour, and a 42% increase in the number of devices both monitoring app health and autonomously repairing or reinstalling them when needed.

“It is abundantly clear that in order to deliver both maximum protection and returns on security investments, critical controls must be constantly monitored and maintained,” says John Herrema, EVP of product and strategy at Absolute Software.

“Our unique intelligence repeatedly shows that complex device environments have put endpoint agents at constant risk of collision, decay, or being disabled by malicious or negligent users. By making the investments to continuously grow our Application Resilience ecosystem, we are enabling our customers to harden their defences against malicious attackers and strengthen overall security posture.”

In one use case, a US professional sports franchise uses Absolute Application Resilience to autonomously heal their endpoint management and EDR solutions without IT intervention, enabling them to maintain application health and reduce risk exposure.

In another instance, one of the largest healthcare systems in the US is using Application Resilience to ensure its endpoint protection platform (EPP) and client management application are working effectively, strengthening its ability to enforce security standards and meet stringent compliance requirements.

“Absolute Software is the only provider of self-healing, intelligent security solutions. Embedded in more than 600 million devices, Absolute is the only platform offering a permanent digital connection that intelligently and dynamically applies visibility, control and self-healing capabilities to endpoints, applications, and network connections. It is helping customers to strengthen cyber resilience against the escalating threat of ransomware and malicious attacks. Trusted by nearly 20,000 customers, G2 recognized Absolute as a Leader for the twelfth consecutive quarter in the Winter 2023 Grid Report for Endpoint Management and as a Leader for the second consecutive quarter in the Grid Report for Zero Trust Networking,” concludes  Herrema.
