Absolute Software, today announced new platform advancements that will allow clients to identify, and respond to possible endpoint security access threats across distant, distributed device fleets more quickly. This company is a leading provider of endpoint resilience solutions.
“The number of endpoint devices operating out of physical reach and off the corporate network has made it more challenging than ever for IT and Security admins to identify where their organization might be most vulnerable or exposed to risk,” said Ameer Karim, Executive VP of Product Management at Absolute. “These platform enhancements signal our ongoing commitment to delivering the visibility, intelligence, and self-healing capabilities our customers need to ensure devices and data remain protected, and critical applications stay healthy and resilient.”
IT and security professionals can now protect essential infrastructure, applications, devices, and data without sacrificing user productivity thanks to these product upgrades.
Benefits to users:
- Security access enforcement and dynamic re-authentication:
Customers may now more simply deploy current cloud authentication solutions to reduce the risk of compromised credentials. The ability to challenge a user’s security credentials if the conditions or environment change, forcing them to re-authenticate using existing technology such as Multi-factor Authentication, is one of the new features.
2. Foundational zero trust security:
New ZTNA policy actions improve the capacity to protect employees against harmful applications and network destinations, as well as prohibit lateral movement.
3. Resilient deployment architecture:
Using active server technology, Absolute has added Resilience to its distributed network architecture, bringing the benefits of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to customer-managed environments, including high availability, horizontal scale-out, and zero downtime upgrades. Improved diagnostics and monitoring capabilities:
4. Truly resilient ZTNA:
Absolute’s self-healing ZTNA client for Windows is capable of autonomously reinstalling itself if it is tampered with, accidentally uninstalled, or otherwise stops working, ensuring that it remains healthy and offers the full value intended.
