As cyber threats continue to escalate, some experts predict that organisations will face a new ransomware attack every two seconds by 2031.

With hybrid work environments here to stay, it’s imperative to have solutions that can both strengthen overall security posture, according to John Herrema, EVP of product and strategy at Absolute Software, in order to provide a better end user experience.

"This latest product release equips IT and security teams with a reliable, two-way communication channel to reach employees – beyond email and other productivity applications, which are a prime target for malicious actors.


"Additionally, it enables them to automatically remediate critical applications when they are disabled or stop working effectively, as well as ensure their web tool investments are being fully utilised and generating maximum ROI," Herrema said.

Additional data reveals that 97 per cent of surveyed IT professionals believe that remote workers are exposed to at least some added risk, and in turn, distributed or hybrid working expands their potential attack surface.

To enable IT and security teams to navigate these challenges, Absolute Software has enhanced end user messaging enhancements, an expanded catalogue of resilient applications, and access to deeper insights needed to optimise existing web application investments.

Following the implementation of new capabilities, Secure Endpoint users can now leverage the following:

  • Enhanced end user messaging: IT and security teams can leverage Absolute’s undeletable firmware-embedded connection to all endpoints and send secure, on-device end user communication – even if other tools, such as email, have been disabled by a malicious actor or if a user’s device has been compromised. Additionally, users can receive detailed instructions on how to avoid their machine being impacted or how to quarantine an infected device to limit the spread.
  • Broadened intelligence: Absolute's latest product release includes a newly available Web Subscriptions Report enabling enterprise and education IT teams to accurately measure the return on web tool investments. The consolidated report provides a "single pane of glass" view into how web applications are being used by employees and students, enabling them to make more informed budgetary decisions related to licence renewal or optimisation for the upcoming year.
  • Expanded application persistence catalogue: Absolute has increased the total number of titles available to its Resilience customers to 60; recent additions include BlackBerry CylancePROTECT and Ivanti Neurons for unified endpoint management.
