- Persistence Services™ optimizes mobile workforce productivity for Allegis Group-

VANCOUVER, April 20, 2016 /CNW/ - Absolute® (TSX: ABT), the industry standard for persistent endpoint security and data risk management solutions, launched a new service that will persistently reinstall software agents from independent software vendors for existing Absolute customers.

Persistence™ Services by Absolute enables customers to ensure crucial applications remain installed on a device, regardless of user or location – on and off the corporate network. This service provides customers with an important security advantage: they can extend their endpoint monitoring and protection capabilities beyond the limitations of traditional software solutions.

This service leverages Absolute's patented Persistence® technology which is embedded into the core of laptop, desktop, tablet, and smartphone devices at the factory by OEMs around the world. Today, over one billion devices have Persistence built into the firmware. Once activated, Persistence provides a two-way connection with the device and prompts the automatic reinstallation of select applications if they are missing or removed. No other vendor can provide this functionality.

"Our customers understand the power of Persistence technology to assure the integrity of critical endpoint applications," said Christopher Bolin, Chief Product Officer, Absolute. "By expanding our Persistence model to support third-party applications, our customers can be confident that they are providing consistent security coverage across all enabled devices."

"We use Persistence Services to ensure our VPN technology is maintained on each endpoint. This provides our remote workers with a reliable connection to our network with no interruption to productivity," said Jeff D. Reinsfelder, Infrastructure Distribution Manager, Allegis Group.

With Persistence Services, Absolute customers will be able to extend IT visibility across their entire security architecture, especially when endpoints are off the corporate network. From security applications such as encryption and anti-malware, to a VPN client or IT management software, Persistence Services will ensure any business-critical applications are properly installed and operational.

"This is another step in the ongoing expansion of our key differentiator – Persistence technology," stated Mr. Bolin. "For the first time in the history of Absolute, we have extended Persistence technology to trigger the automatic reinstallation of a non-Absolute software agent. We will expand upon this business model as we actively explore direct relationships with software vendors so they can provide their customers with the reliability and assurance of our Persistence technology out of the box."
