Absolute Software strengthens security capability with BlackBerry


Self-healing endpoint and secure access solutions Absolute Software has partnered with software company BlackBerry to augment CylanceProtect with Absolute’s Application Persistence capabilities for its joint customers.

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.”

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.
