Absolute Software has teamed up with BlackBerry to enable joint customers to augment CylancePROTECT with Absolute’s Application Persistence capabilities.
With this addition to the company’s Application Persistence ecosystem, joint Absolute Resilience customers can extend Absolute’s firmware-embedded, self-healing device connection to BlackBerry’s leading Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) – ensuring it remains healthy, installed, and working effectively to protect their devices and data.
Anchored by its patented Persistence technology residing in more than 500 million endpoints, Absolute provides a digital tether to every device to help ensure the highest levels of resiliency.
Absolute’s Application Persistence service leverages this unbreakable, two-way connection to monitor mission-critical security applications’ health and behaviour; identify if missing or corrupted; and automatically repair or reinstall components when necessary – without requiring human intervention.
Leveraging Cylance AI and machine learning capabilities, BlackBerry’s CylancePROTECT provides automated malware prevention, application and script control, memory protection, and device policy enforcement. Rated as the “Best New Endpoint” protection solution by SE Labs in November of 2021, it detects and blocks cyberattacks with unparalleled effectiveness, and provides controls for safeguarding against sophisticated threats.
“Organizations across the globe rely on our EPP every day to protect their most valuable assets from sophisticated actors who are continuously innovating, and evolving their attack methods and vectors,” said Alex Willis, Vice President of Technical Solutions, BlackBerry.
“The ability to extend Absolute’s undeletable line of defense and self-healing to CylancePROTECT gives us the confidence that we are delivering on our promise of keeping our customers safe from zero-day exploits, ransomware, and other malicious activity in today’s perimeter-less workplaces.”
Absolute’s expansive Application Persistence catalogue is comprised of more than 50 mission-critical security and business applications needed to enable a reliable, resilient work from anywhere experience.
“Our data shows that the complexity of today’s distributed endpoint environments has left security applications under constant threat of colliding with other applications, or being disabled by malicious or negligent users,” said Edward Choi, SVP of Global Alliances at Absolute Software.
“By joining our Application Persistence ecosystem, BlackBerry is enabling our joint customers to harden and self-heal their mission-critical application at the firmware level – ensuring it remains healthy and working effectively to protect their sensitive data, devices, and systems.”
Absolute will host its second CyberVoices event on June 2, 2022, at 11AM PT – a unique cybersecurity experience featuring thought-provoking discussions among security leaders from both the ISV and end user community. More details and registration are available here.
