Adding to the company’s Application Persistence ecosystem, joint Absolute Resilience customers can extend Absolute’s firmware-embedded, self-healing device connection to BlackBerry’s Endpoint Protection platform (EPP).
Absolute Software says it provides undeletable digital tether to every device. Its Application Persistence service leverages 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 human intervention.
BlackBerry’s CylanceProtect provides automated malware prevention, application and script control, memory protection, and device policy enforcement.
“The ability to extend Absolute’s undeletable line of defence 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,” comments BlackBerry vice president of technical solutions Alex Willis.
“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,” says Absolute Software senior vice president of global alliances Edward Choi.
“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.”
