Enhanced Device Visibility:

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.

Reporting and Analytics:

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.

Automate Endpoint Resilience:

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.

Absolute provides a full complement of endpoint security features and remote capabilities so that you can control and secure business data and devices:
  1. Reporting & Analytics

    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.

  2. Geotechnology

    Track assets on a Google MapTM, including recent and historical locations. Create geofences based on corporate policies. Investigate devices that are out of bounds or entering an unauthorized location.

  3. Risk Assessment

    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.

  4. Risk Response

    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.

  5. Endpoint Investigations

    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.

While encryption is vital in ensuring your devices and residing data are secure in case they ever go missing, in some scenarios you may need more information and capabilities. This includes deleting data, recover the device or run remote investigations on compromised systems. You may also need to prove compliance – including encryption status – in order to potentially mitigate penalties or fines.

Additionally, encryption is generally not well enforced industry wide. Absolute strengthens encryption (among other security tools such as Anti-Virus and VPN) by allowing you to monitor the health of the application across your fleet and the ability to self-heal critical components whenever non-compliance instances arise.

Absolute is designed to address specific needs tied to device control and resilience, including the ability to survive OS reimages and hard drive wipes, access any device over an Internet connection, and carry out remote security measures. Absolute does not include threat prevention, detection and response or encryption; however, it does provide visibility into the health of these tools and the ability to self-heal unhealthy agents through its cloud based console.

Absolute ensures visibility across all your devices, on or off the corporate network. Through a digital tether embedded in the firmware of Dell devices, you maintain a direct two-way connection even when the OS is reimaged or hard drive is swapped. Absolute also provides a range of device metrics, including hardware information, software deployed on devices, sensitive data residing on devices as well as security vitals such as Encryption and Anti-Virus.
