New Innovations Give Absolute Resilient Zero Trust

Zero Trust Network Access is a necessary element of any zero-trust security approach. But it is not sufficient enough to meet zero trust objectives on its own, meaning it needs to be a piece of a more integrated approach. Organizations realize this and acknowledge they need more resilience-focused zero trust approaches that are capable of integrating endpoint and access assessments at every step.

Self-healing, intelligent security solutions provider Absolute achieves this by empowering customers with deeper visibility and intelligence, expanded software integrations and a refreshed user experience through new innovations and updates to Absolute Secure Endpoint and Absolute Secure Access.

The Absolute Platform enables IT and security teams to ensure endpoints remain compliant and applications remain operational. It also empowers IT and security team to transition from traditional VPNs to a resilient zero trust approach, all without hindering security or user productivity.

New capabilities available to Absolute Secure Endpoint customers in the latest product release include public API expansion, Absolute Connector for ServiceNow that enables joint customers to access Absolute’s comprehensive asset intelligence and single source of truth within their ServiceNow platform environment, and Expanded Application Resilience Catalog.

The catalog includes support for more than 60 critical security applications that IT and security administrators can self-heal across their endpoints.

Server and client enhancements to Absolute Secure Access include a new look and new feel with SaaS enhancements that add native NAT capabilities and enhanced alerting, enhanced 5G telemetry and detection, deeper visibility, faster NAC checks and android client enhancements.

Collecting network telemetry on Android devices is done with the screen off to improve battery life, ensuring that administrators have actionable device and network information even if a device is in sleep mode.

“By providing the critical components needed to achieve resiliency – deep visibility, intelligence and firmware-embedded persistence – we are enabling organizations to not only protect devices, data and users but also ensure critical controls are operating at maximum efficacy,” said John Herrema, EVP of products and strategy at Absolute.

The new capabilities continue the company’s investment in bringing together the combined power of Absolute Secure Endpoint and Absolute Secure Access with its firmware-embedded self-healing capability to help customers achieve resilient-focused zero trust environments and deliver an optimal user experience.
