Description

The Absolute Platform: See, Understand and Remediate Faster with the New Standard for Endpoint Visibility and Control


Dark endpoints — devices that are off the network, lost, stolen, or operating without effective security controls — are breeding grounds for security breaches. When a device goes dark, no matter what the reason, you have a limited window in which to take action and mitigate the risk.


You need a faster and more powerful solution to gather full contextual awareness, remediate vulnerabilities, fend off attacks, and ensure compliance. You need a solution that gives you the power to reach beyond your corporate network to deliver always connected IT asset management, self-healing endpoint security, and continuous data protection. With Absolute, you can do all of this and more with the only solution that lets you see and control all your devices, data, applications, and users.


How? This combination of the easy-to-use cloud-based Absolute platform combined with patented self-healing capabilities embedded in the firmware provides unique technology that cannot be tampered with or removed. This exclusive position gives you visibility you can act on and near real-time remediation to protect your devices, your data, your applications, and importantly your users — both on and off your network.


Join us Tuesday evening for this lively and interactive session when you will have the opportunities to look "under the hood" and learn how Absolute can protect your IT assets. Learn how Absolute was able to help one of our members recover his stolen laptop. Register today:
