Absolute is the industry standard for endpoint security and resilience. Through a digital tether embedded in the firmware of Dell devices, Absolute ensures you have persistent line of sight to your endpoints to monitor device health metrics and automate critical security controls, fortifying your fleet’s resilience against today’s varied cyber threats.While Absolute is present on the device’s firmware at the factory, it is activated through the deployment of an operating system agent which calls into Absolute’s Monitoring Center to complete enrollment. This activation process can be performed at the factory through Dell Custom Factory Integration (CFI). Once enrolled, your devices can be managed and secured through Absolute’s cloud based console.Note: This bundled offering includes an Absolute product subscription (as listed in the “Overview” section below) as well as an added service to activate the product at the factory through Dell CFI. If you prefer to activate Absolute on your devices by yourself after shipment, kindly view the offerings under “Dell Endpoint Security Additional Offers” in the Software section.
All Absolute Control features +
Always have a direct line of sight to your devices, regardless of whether they are on or off the corporate network. Through Absolute Persistence being embedded in the firmware of Dell devices, you have enhanced visibility across your fleet and the assurance of tamper proof connectivity even when the operating system is reimaged or hard drive is swapped. Leverage geo-technology to track device whereabouts and flag risk associated with devices going out of bounds.
View multifaceted endpoint telemetry related to device hardware, software, usage, security vitals, sensitive data and application health. Identify precursors to non-compliant events by being alerted to changing data points such as IP address, hard drive serial number, operating system build, installed applications, geolocation and many more.
Ensure security applications such as VPN, Antivirus, Encryption and Data Loss Prevention are healthy and active across all your devices. Freeze a missing or stolen device to render it inoperable and protect it from potential thieves. Identify sensitive data residing on endpoints and run full or selective data delete to alleviate risk associated with data leakage. Run automated PowerShell and Bash scripts across devices related to common IT and security actions. Ensure compliance with regulatory frameworks such as GDPR, HIPAA and NIST.
Collect incredibly accurate information from each device, including historical data. Determine if sensitive data is stored on a device. Identify activities and user behavior that could be precursors to a security incident including changes to IP address, location, unauthorized access to sensitive data, non-compliant software/hardware installations; and many more. Receive a notification if these activities occur.
Track assets on a Google Map™, including recent and historical locations. Create geofences based on corporate policies. Investigate devices that are out of bounds or entering an unauthorized location.
Identify risk conditions and receive a notification if these conditions occur. Key security data integrates automatically with SIEM solutions. Scan for sensitive data on the endpoint and tailor your security response based on the results. Validate the status of complementary security applications such as encryption, anti-malware, and SCCM. Use these reports to prove to auditors that security measures were properly implemented and in place at the time of a security incident.
Program the automatic reinstallation of business critical endpoint software applications. Remotely recover or delete data. Set policies to ensure offline devices are automatically protected. Freeze a device and communicate with the user to verify status. Produce an audit log to prove data on a compromised device was properly secured, not accessed, and safely deleted. Use certified data delete workflows to decommission a device.
Leverage the Absolute Investigations team to determine the cause of an endpoint security incident. Identify and eliminate insider threats. Refine best practices so the same incident does not reoccur. Determine if data was accessed during an incident, and whether or not a data breach notification is required. Recover stolen devices.
Absolute lets you set policies and plans of action that suit your business. If you need expert help, Absolute offers services ranging from initial security setup and industry-specific compliance expertise, to expert investigations of suspect devices and security incidents.
