Forrester cited Absolute Software in its recently released report covering four key endpoint management trends that IT professionals should implement.
Forrester’s report, The Future of Endpoint Management, examines self-healing, security convergence, experience analytics, and privacy protection, which it notes IT professionals must keep in mind as they strive to simplify and modernize their endpoint strategies.
“Self-healing will have to occur at several levels: 1) application; 2) operating system; and 3) firmware,” writes Andrew Hewitt, Forrester analyst and author of the report.
“Of these, self-healing built into firmware will prove to be the most critical as it will ensure that all software running on an endpoint, even agents that perform self-healing at the operating system level, can operate effectively without interruption.
“A global staffing company is already integrating firmware-level self-healing using Absolute Software’s application persistence capability to ensure its VPN remains functional for all remote workers.”
Absolute Software’s patented Persistence technology has been implemented in over 500 million devices.
Through this, the company provides an indelible digital connection to every device to help ensure resilience is at its full potential.
Its Application Persistence service uses this unbreakable two-way connection to monitor the health and behavior of critical security applications and recognize if they are missing or corrupted.
Additionally, the offering automatically repairs or reinstalls components as needed without requiring human intervention.
