Embedded in the firmware of more than 600 million devices, Absolute enables visibility and control across endpoints, applications, and network connections. Leveraging our unique self-healing capability, customers can protect devices, data, and users and ensure that critical security controls operate at maximum effectiveness, while also delivering an optimal remote and mobile user experience. Additionally, leading software providers can extend our patented Absolute Persistence® technology to monitor and automatically self-heal their mission-critical endpoint applications through Absolute Application Persistence-as-a-Service (APaaS) - ensuring they remain healthy, installed, and working effectively across their customer base.

Absolute’s firmware-embedded device connection also uniquely positions the company to empower organizations to prepare for, respond to, and fully recover from cyberattacks. Absolute Ransomware Response delivers the capabilities needed to assess ransomware preparedness for endpoints, monitor endpoint cyber hygiene across an entire device fleet, and expedite endpoint recovery.

“We are honored to be recognized with multiple Global InfoSec awards for the second consecutive year,” said John Herrema, EVP of Product and Strategy at Absolute. “As reported in our just-released Absolute 2023 Resilience Index, the work-from-anywhere model is exacerbating the strain on IT and security teams – compounding existing complexity and security challenges with a broad mix of applications, networks, hardware, and OS versions. As our customers continue to navigate the challenges of protecting distributed workforces amid the constant threat of a ransomware or cyberattack, we are committed to delivering the intelligence and automation they need to remediate risk, restore the user experience, and ensure compliance.”

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber-crime.
