IT leaders can safeguard data and devices in the office or in the field

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (BUSINESS WIRE) Absolute

(TSX: ABT),the endpoint visibility and control company, today announced

a new strategic partnership with

VAIO

to enhance endpoint security capabilities within VAIO

devices. As a result of the collaboration, VAIO has selected Absolute’s

patented Persistence technology to be integrated within the VAIO Pro PA

and VAIO A12 models just introduced in Japan today. With Absolute’s

Persistence technology, VAIO devices become an integral part of an

organization’s security strategy from the moment a device is activated,

creating the last line of defense for data protection.


Absolute and VAIO Empower Digital Workforces with Embedded Device and Data Secur ...

The increasing mobility of remote workers creates exponential risk for

organizations looking to keep their proprietary data secure. However,

the benefits of business being conducted anywhere, at anytime, often

outweighs the inherent risks of mobility. The traditional network

perimeter has been effectively diminished as the primary defense against

an organization’s security threats or vulnerabilities. The digital

workforce transformation is also causing device manufacturers like VAIO

to re-evaluate the engrained capabilities offered within their systems

and implement new technologies that contribute to a stronger security

posture on the endpoint.

“Strengthening device and data security is critical for every

organization, which made the decision to implement additional security

capabilities on the endpoint an easy one for us,” said Kaoru Hayashi,

Corporate Officer at VAIO Corporation. “Combined with our fingerprint

and face identification technology, VAIO devices with Absolute’s

Persistence technology create a powerful security instrument that helps

organizations ensure that they stay in control of their data and

minimize vulnerabilities or risk associated with cyber threats.”

Absolute’s Persistence technology creates a digital tether to keep IT

teams informed about the security of their device populations, in

control of their endpoints with remediation actions and in compliance

with audit-ready reporting and automation capabilities. This

self-healing connection eliminates the ability for users to tamper with

or disable vital security controls mandated by their IT teams.

“As business is increasingly conducted on the go, IT and security teams

are left trying to keep up with ever-changing security risks and

vulnerabilities exacerbated by today’s mobile workforce,” said Mark

Grace, Senior Vice President of Worldwide OEM, Channel and Business

Development at Absolute. “With this newest strategic partnership, VAIO

and Absolute are giving IT the power to minimize the risks of data

falling into the wrong hands through insecure or improperly configured

endpoints.”
