By CIOReview | Monday, August 17, 2015

FREMONT, CA: Absolute Software, a provider of endpoint security and data risk management solutions for computers, tablets and smartphones, announces new security functionality that incorporates the status of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) on each device as well as the integrates Absolute alerts with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions.

Organizations that depend on Microsoft SCCM to manage the deployment and security of devices and applications can now leverage Persistence technology by Absolute to monitor devices when Microsoft SCCM fails to work properly on an endpoint. With the Persistence technology, IT can monitor devices on or off network and receive an alert if SCCM is corrupted or removed.

The new SIEM connector allows customers to consolidate security data within their SIEM environment. On the occasion of Absolute security alert being triggered, the event details will flow into the customer’s chosen SIEM application where the incident can be examined in the context of the broader security landscape.

“Our customers apply a layered approach to endpoint security so they can cover as many eventualities as possible,” says Christopher Bolin, Chief Product Officer, Absolute. “They rely on Absolute to persistently monitor complementary security applications such as encryption, anti-malware, and SCCM. The integration of security incidents into their SIEM environment will provide them with additional insight to their overall security posture.”
