Absolute Software Adds BlackBerry’s CylancePROTECT to Application Persistence Ecosystem

Enables joint customers to monitor and autonomously self-heal BlackBerry’s leading Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP), ensuring it stays healthy and working effectively

Absolute Software, a leader in self-healing endpoint and secure access solutions, announced a partnership 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.

“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”

Anchored by its patented Persistence® technology residing in more than 500 million endpoints, Absolute provides an undeletable 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 behavior; identify if missing or corrupted; and automatically repair or reinstall components when necessary – without requiring human intervention.
